Autonomous Submarine

It’s not a self-driving car, but Reuters reports that the US Navy has just christened the first unmanned, autonomous submarine hunter.

The USS Sea Hunter won’t even have a remote captain — the goal is for it, and a fleet of submarines like it, to operate on their own, hunting down enemy subs.

Pretty neat, and maybe a little scary, too.
