Well at least the area denial idea is good. Very little explosives are left behind, and it is controlled by a human, who can distinguish between innocents and enemies. Firefighting looks good, too, if it works. (I'd like to see a real video instead of a 3D animation...)

...and it is controlled by a human, who can distinguish between innocents and enemies.

From the above site:
"A 36 barrel prototype has fired a burst of 180 rounds at a rate exceeding one million rpm."
(Emphasis mine)

I would hate to think of the numbers of civillians killed, if the guy in charge of this thing got 'spooked' and pressed the wrong button. Hell, they probably wouldn't find enough pieces left to tell how many it wiped out.
