Asked a question last year

Is a remote controlled 'robot' still a robot or is it only a remote controlled toy, because it can't do things autonomically?

Depends on the actions. Rc airplanes and drones used by the military are not toys. Maybe it is determined by cost and can it be weaponized.

Guten Morgen Bill SCHONFELDER,

well I didn't think about RC weapons - but did you ever heard from Isaak Asimov and his 'laws of robotics'?!
