In the 2009 film “Terminator Salvation”, audiences were introduced to a post-apocalyptic world where automated motorcycles called Moto-Terminators ruled the highways. Created and manufactured by Skynet sometime before 2018, their main function was to hunt and destroy human survivors that were still using the roads once created by civilized society. It was an interesting addition to the Terminator science fiction universe, that suddenly doesn’t feel very fictional anymore, due to Yamaha’s new project: The Motobot.
Yes Terminator fans, the world that James Cameron warned us about took one step closer to becoming non-fiction recently when it was announced that robots could soon be 15 times stronger than humans thanks to a newly developed artificial muscle.
The future that James Cameron imagined in 1984’s ground-breaking film “The Terminator” took another small step to becoming a reality recently, when scientists created actual self-healing flesh for robots.
