The fictional Terminator franchise seemingly inched one step closer to becoming a reality recently when the Russian press revealed behind-the-scenes footage of their new military robot that can shoot guns and make decisions. They also insist it’s not a “Terminator”.
In the years to come, some fans have wondered; Will James Cameron be remembered as a prolific writer and director of movies dealing with science fiction, or will he be remembered as a “Nostradamus” of the technological world, correctly predicting a future clash between artificial intelligent machines and humanity? Well after the results to a recent poll was announced, it appears the majority of Great Britain feel it will be the latter.
Back in 1984, audiences across the world were amazed when director James Cameron revealed The Terminator ‘s vision for the very first time. As Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese fled down the alley behind the Tech-Noir, the ominous red HUD (Heads Up Display) of the T-800 revealed that Sarah was not being pursued by just an ordinary man. Her pursuer was a cybernetic organism, equipped with a transparent display that presented analysis and decision options data over a visual screen. And now, you can be equipped with Terminator vision too!
