Researchers have developed a robot that spots, targets, and terminates sea stars. Skynet is online!

A robot submarine is swimming around Australia finding, targeting, and terminating sea stars. The reason for this is that sea stars are harmful to coral reefs, and coral reefs are important to overall ocean health.

These terminator submarines are programmed to recognize only sea stars, and terminate only sea stars. Does that comfort you? Yeah, me neither.

They filmed what the terminator submarine sees when injecting the sea stars with poison (aka terminating them). It's got the whole 80's looking terminator red targeting system and all!

Sooooo, when are they going to start hunting people?
