Slightly OT BZflag in real life

Post by peewee » Thu Dec 04, 2008 6:37 pm

Gizmodo.com has an article on a new class of ultralight, unmanned tanks that are being developed. With no need for armor they're cheap to build and deploy.

Wonder if that means that BZ players will be drafted in the future...

Now I know what to ask for, for christmas.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
