ROBOT soldiers manufactured to kill enemy troops have been designed for the Pentagon by a tiny Glasgow computer company which is set to make millions from the deal.

Essential Viewing says the technology comes straight from the world of science fiction. Chief executive Simon Hardy said the technology had its nearest equivalent in the Star Wars movie Attack Of The Clones.

The article's light on the details of the tech, focusing more on the idea of soldiers just kinda sitting around and essentially playing video games during combat operations. Their website links to a white paper that probably makes sense to people with more of an engineering degree than me, but it essentially seems to say that they're really, really good at compressing video.


So, where's the wristwatch videophones?
