The image above is from a tweet by Ghost Robotics. It depicts a sniper rifle chambered in 6.5 creedmoor (the round stays supersonic and is deadly accurate to about 1,200 yards) attached to one of their quadrupedal robots. Here’s the text of the tweet:

I have often said, “Technology is neither good nor bad; that distinction is for people.” Most of the exceptions to this statement are technologies specifically designed to cause harm. Is the robotic sniper dog good or bad?
