Humanoid Robots Take Next Step In Evolution Being Closer To Terminator

The latest humanoid robot is one step closer to becoming human after achieving climbing up stairs. Has anyone noticed a trend in technology developing from movies?  It's clear to most anyone now that the U.S Defense Department is building terminator robots in order to kill off humans.

Movies and television can be very dangerous because they seem to inspire the dark imaginations of those who want to bring the ideas to fruition.  Star Trek, especially from the 1960's era, is just one example of how many of the ideas came to be decades later such as teleconference screens, flip phone communicators and laser weapons.

ETMAN, a humanoid robot built in 2011 for the Department of Defense's Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), has been modified to climb stairs, as shown in the unsettling video above.

These things are evolving quickly!
