Exceptionalism is strong on this one.

Only 7K views in 6 months? I think the interview was good , I just think CNN is a ice bath. Laurie you might be better off going independent.

I dont trust CNN, but I do trust Palmer Luckey and whatever hes doing is going to save the free world. Very nice to listen to him and his thoughts.

I know this is an old upload but... why did the interviewer keep interjecting the fact Palmer and his team were eating Chick-fil-A? My guess is that the left and the interviewer's parent company still wish Palmer, and those that differ in opinion from them, ill-will. Just my .02 cents...

How is VR/AR technology used in autonomous self piloting systems? Will this technology allow for near seamless autonomous driving in nearly every circumstance? I believe that a neural self driving network will chose to the best possible outcome as derived from the data it has. Data is paramount. It may be possible for the car to decide in such away as to crash itself rather than run anyone over because it knows it can safely survive the accident. Can you project a holographic solider to confront the enemy on the field?

1000 ai drones is not worth 1 cunning warrior. He's on the right tend, but no machine will beat ingenuity. But it's a noble effort.

What have China & Russia done so far? Let me tell you, and Palmer: Chinese have the best FOV and high resolution VR HMD from Pimax, and only Russian's are able to launch rockets that's taking humanity to low orbit for the last years.. Such a danger they are to US right? (Of course they are in another sense: $) And Palmer is continuously keep pressuring on those countries as expecting them to attact USA from its Mexican border, and he is doing his best to protect the country with his military drone technology that will protect Mexica/USA border from Russians&Chinamen?!😎 Wowwww...🥰 I would rather be so much happier, if he was after a new startup that would enable Drone&VR tech; for instance 360 degree VR 4k per eye 3d FPV with DJI quality alike drones for consumers all over the world, rather than serving just for US military! That would be my hero. I and so many of us I believe, would really like to know how "Palmer Freeman Luckey" is building those drones that would protect US/Mexican border from China and Russia? Probably those drones are being produced in China, and their firmware would be programmed by Russians. Lol, such a world we are living in...?

Russia and China have been doing things. It just isn't covered in the news. What about the Russians invading the Ukraine? And Russia is building an uninterceptable cruise missile. China has been busy too. They have built an island off of the Philippines, and they are placing military equipment (weapons, etc) there. China has also made their version of the stealth fighter (looks a lot like the F-22) and aircraft carriers, and they have been able to put spacecrafts in orbit and on the moon. This means they are capable of sending ICBMs to the continental U.S. Also Russia and China have hacked into U.S. computer systems.

Ugh, I wish he would just stick to making his own VR HMD with his funds. He has such potential...

Nothing he can build, even with all the technology in the world, will protect him from the almighty #metoo gang. Just one pissed off #metoo clanswoman looking for a fight can/will bring him and his company down and put him in jail more faster than any of his 'adversaries' weapons!!!!
