I loved it, but i think they should have intelligent robots. Where the robots can communicate with each other and fight with no human interference. One of the problems engineers face designing robots is the Brain (supercomputer), the size, weight and energy it needs. The only way to overcome this problem is to have the brain in separated unit and to fit the robot with sender receiver control unit, which communicates between the brain and the body. Other problems I see in robots are the hydraulic movement mechanism. I think they should use electromagnetic movement mechanism. Because its movement is very responding, fast and can deliver the needed force.

Do not enough cash to buy some real estate? Don't worry, because that is possible to take the <a href="">personal loans</a> to work out all the problems. Hence get a commercial loan to buy everything you want.
