I am the first to admit that there are some good-natured and even (dare I say?) cute robots out there. Johnny 5, Wall-E, Rosie, Bender… these robots are all about a good time. But they’re fictional! In real life robots are creepy as hell and will one day rule the earth as our merciless overlords. It’s just science! Science and the imminent future. For a glimpse into the inevitable, I put together a list of some of the Scariest Robots that Really For Real Exist. Enjoy?
Why? Whywhywhywhywhy? Nobody even likes bugs anyway! Annnd after watching that last one, I got a serious case of the heebie-jeebies.
The same logic for bug robots applies to baby robots. We already got plenty of unwanted babies on the planet, why do we need unwanted robot ones? Logic!
This is the stuff nightmares are made of. Warning: Watch either of these videos and you will be sleeping with the lights on plus screaming like a little fraidy cat cry baby (I know from personal experience).
No Real Purpose Robots
With the job crisis on our hands, I wonder why we are trying to hook the robots up with jobs that people would be happy to (and not killingly) do. If you are in need of a dental patient, what is it about a human (with, ya know, real teeth) that does not suffice?
Ah yes, let’s give robots the ability learn, think and act. That way they can conspire amongst themselves!
C’mon scientists. This ain’t coo. Can you chill with the killing machines? I’m asking too much aren’t I? I must be taking into consideration, I don’t know, THE FUTURE OF ALL HUMANKIND.
Now someone hold me, I’m scared.
