    I'll be honest. It scares the crap out of me knowing that there will be computer based pilots flying and fighting in aircraft in the future. I understand loss of a pilot would obviously be gone, but you completely take out the human element. What I mean is the human emotion on whether to "pull the trigger" or not is completely removed since the "pilot" is pretty much playing a video game.

    Cool, but scary to me.

    True, what also worries me is hackers messing with the controls..

    Lol considering that group "Anonymous" has hacked into pretty much everything that is considered Government Secure, then yes I'm worried about it as well. No firewall is strong enough because technology changes too quick.

    True, but that doesn't detract from how cool it is. Certainly a worry for the future if they get hacked.

    Or, just a computer war, push button, theoretical bang, walk a bunch into a room, Zap.
    Push a button in retaliation, theoretical bang, the other side does the same.



    wait a minute? Star trek?
