Soldiers Bond With Robots

Defense analyst at the Brookings Institution Peter (aka P.W.) Singer recently wrote the book "Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century." In it he claims that soldiers tend to bond with robots such as Packbots and Talon robots. He says that some will risk their own lives for their bots and that some have given them promotions, Purple Hearts and military funerals. We thought all this sounded a bit farfetched until we saw him on the "Late Late Show" with Craig Ferguson last week.
