The robots will play a major role in the future of the conquest of the universe and in the new art of war. Just think of the displacement acceleration of over 4g, which could provide a significant strategic advantage to our forces of self-defense fighting. There Ad innumerable possibilities ... all to develop as if we'd be this little lion predator.
Small robots are currently in the process of creating a revolution on Earth and in the conquest of space. They will be used among others in the pollination of plants in my project of Mars colonization. As I have recently been realizing, it will certainly be used as a missile homing in fighting the future. With concern, there are even people who believe that the only law of war would not be that there is no law :() :() So cameras, bombs, genetic poison diffuser and others... stinking aliens will appreciate enormously their defensive qualities.
The average robot is very interesting. Unable to be equipped with nuclear reactors or spice one, it would be fine as ambassador of peace and love for the unknown nations, as it's has been built for :() :)
As the Terminator, the big robots, equipped with a nuclear reactor or spices one, may help control a hostile population of the development of humanity or contrary to universal peace. They could be programmed or even very intelligent creatures, thanks to techniques that will be developed following the discovery of nano-robots and mathematical history. We could predict that their overall use could be around the year 2035. They are harmless to people of good will, but we should not provoke them :) Some arid lands of our planet, would benefit from such system... They eat little and can give a lot of love, as it has been shown in some movies :) :()
Ultimate devastation weapons, colossal robots will soon make their appearance in our self-defense forces. Driven only by men, or remotely, or provided with an artificial intelligence, their ability to undergo multiple G-force, will make them the favorite weapon of the future. Certainly weapons of Battletech will not all exist, but they will fight fiercely. The Borg will be annihilated in the volume of the entire universe :) One of the things I love most in the titanic robots is that they cause terror among the various pest species of the universe. It is clear that they will be used on inferior aliens, because the spice weapons are far more devastating. Where in case we should hide the true strength of our expeditionary fleet of survival. They will be very useful...
