So anyway, watching a show on the History Channel recently got me thinking. The military guy on the show mentioned (intelligently enough I thought) that with remote control aircraft, what will really be important is having a generation of high dexterity videogame playing geeks manning the controls. (Interestingly enough, he mentioned that one person would control about 4 aircraft at the same time, making me immediately think of some low scale RTS.)
This raises grave implications based on national characteristics.
So, to get to my question, are we all going to be slaves to the Korean master warlords in 50 years?
Computer controller combat equipment is so totally where warfare is going. The reaction times and calmness under a fire of a computer are going to be big winners once computers get sophisticated enough to do necessary tasks like accept a video input stream and from it recognize terrain and possible enemies.
