  27. 27. “Imagine 25 years from now where old guys like me put on a pair of glasses or a helmet and open our eyes. <br />Somewhere there will be a robot that will open its eyes, and we will be able to see what the robot sees. <br />We will be able to remotely look down on a cave and think to ourselves, 'Let's go down there and kick some butt.' <br />And the robots will respond, controlled by our thoughts. <br />Imagine a warrior with the intellect of a human and the immortality of a machine.”<br />- Anthony Tether, director of DARPA, 2002<br />
