Good ol’ Lucas has got his priorities straight.

Just realized I haven’t read this in a couple weeks due to work, classes, sleep 3 hrs, repeat. Felt awesome to catch up!

If thats an emp, this is a double standard. Unless lucas is willing to kill (under certain circumstances i.e. ethan in danger) a human, don’t emp a sentient ai.

You are assuming an EMP will permanently destroy Zeke et al vs only temporarily disable them.
Also Lucas may not believe this AI or ANY AI is equivalent to a living being, and/or that it is truly self aware and not just a highly sophisticated program that effectively mimics awareness.
In other words there is a whole lot of assumptions you have to make before this becomes equivalent to killing a human.

id think its the equivalent of knocking it out, anyway emp can temporairly or permenently dmg electronics id think scott is smart enough to controill that

And EMP to Zeke would be like a ‘knockout’ to a human.

A real EMP powerful enough to “Knock Out” electronics in its radius would normaly melt some of the delicate components. they literally induce current in the small wires and connections that exceed the voltage/current they are designed to take. takes more than cyceling the power to get them working agian (major repairs/replacement of componants needed)
Then agian this is a super hero Bullshitium EMP so the normal rules of physics may not apply and it could just stun him instead.

Everyone forgetting that Zeke has already been hit by a much bigger EMP blast?

What’s the betting odds that x-bot here has shielding from EMPs now?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing.

Or X01 just plain dodged. The smaller EMP’s look to be much shorter range.

I know this would be far too cheesy and cliche and probably a lame cop-out, but my other thought was “Imagine if this shorts out the killswitch.”

I love cliche.

or puts it into a fritz, then he’ll be discarded by “master”, then he’ll wake up realizing he was discarded but the killswitch keeps on fritzing out, then he tries to find ethan and see if he was telling the truth about the friend who can help him, then when they do he disappears to think about what to do with his new found freedom and possible new friends.

From a post above, shielding is verified:

For a robot, he really has terrible aim. But then I guess plot armor has to be a bit thick unless Tim is ready to kill off a main character.

Actually, it’s quite difficult to engineer a device to throw objects with any accuracy. As humans, we think it shouldn’t be that hard to do, but that’s because we’re biased by our biology. See https://scholar.harvard.edu/ntroach/evolution-throwing From the article, “We are unique among all animals in our ability to throw projectiles at high speeds and with incredible accuracy.” Even robots built to throw something accurately can only throw one particular object. Give a robot that can nail a 3-pointer with a basketball a baseball. Or a stick. Or anything other than a basketball. It will miss, very very poorly. Or just… Read more »

I agree. It harder to code him a free will than a perfect aim imho

That looks very much like it did not work.

Anyone else thinking Lucas should just kill Ethan so he respawns at full health and can help with his own escape?

am i the only one seeing emp + bomb that must receive cancel signal = bad times coming

no thanks nintendo
Guest

It was described as a killswitch, not a bomb. The killswitch could be as simple as X01 getting his SSD/hard drive formatted.

At least Zeke would have a bad time.

Yeah, Zeke’s going to flatten Lucas in the next frame. “I got that little glitch patched, idiot.”

I’m gonna guess the EMP doesn’t work and we find out something crazy about the Zeke-bot.
