Fox News reports that a military robot currently in the design stages and fueled by biomass it scavenges from its surroundings will limit its consumption to plants, and not eat, say, the corpses of dead soldiers on the battlefield. The company has even issued a press release to that effect, including the awesome line "Desecration of the dead is a war crime under Article 15 of the Geneva Conventions, and is certainly not something sanctioned by DARPA, Cyclone or RTI." Okay, then.
