Robotic Caterpillars

Engadget has a blurb about Caterpillar looking to make their product line robotic. Does anybody else remember the scene in “I, Robot” where the robotic demolition machine tries to kill Sergeant Spooner?

Oh, but they don’t have some gigantic positronic AI thing in the lobby to control all their Earth movers, do they? I guess we’re safe.

Update: See, I’m not the only one that worries that the future will be like Sci-Fi movies. Though it is a little odd to see Ars Technica posting about this at nearly the same time.
