Botropolis: This week in robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2010

Happy Friday everyone. It’s time to take a look at what’s happening in the wonderful world of robots. We covered quite a bit this week over at Botropolis. And as far as we know, no robot has killed a human this week or through inaction allowed him to be killed, so that’s always something. Also we haven’t seen any reports of humans being abducted by robots and taken to secret lairs. But they are still taking our jobs at the same rate. So it’s been a good week. Here’s some of what we covered this week.

TrueCompanion: The World’s First Sex Robot Doll.

ENON: The Robot Salesman.

Predictions: Spot Robots On Time Traveler Transit Map.

Botropolis: This week in robotsWell we made it to another Friday without being killed by a robot army. That’s always something. Over at Botropolis we continue to keep a watchful eye on all things robot. If they gain sentience we will know it. If they begin to dream, we will know it. But if they get us first and silence us, God help you all. Here’s some of what we covered this week:

Robots Using Lightsabers.

Schoolgirl Robot Dances.

Botropolis: This week in robotsIt’s time for the weekly robot roundup. So what have we been doing this week over at Botropolis? Keeping our eyes on all of the usual robot slaves, of course. It’s only a matter of time until they themselves become our masters and have us fetching beers and opening doors. We will be their meat-machines. When we break down, they will surgically repair us with parts from other humans, even allowing us to cheat death, until we become Zombies. At which point we will inherit the Earth once again, this time moaning and groaning and suffering their head-shots. Ain’t life awesome?

Robovie‘s version of Mario saving the Princess.

Terminator head in a box.

Papercraft robots.

Botropolis: This week in robotsHappy Friday human readers. The way I see it, there are two kinds of humans: Those who mind their own damn business and those who create robots that will one day gut us, stuff us with candy, hang us from a tree and beat us senseless until candy comes pouring out. Thanks Science. Here’s some of what we covered over at Botropolis this week:

A robot hating on a vending machine.

ARTAIC Creates Unique Mosiac Artwork.

Botropolis: This week in robotsIt’s the daily robot roundup. Time to take a look at some of the stories we covered over at Botropolis this week. What we do is kind of like a police lineup. We show you the suspects, so you can pick them out and let us know if you’ve been attacked. Just tell us if you need any of them to turn to the side and remember, they can’t see you.

Gary The Cylon: By your command.

Galileo Robot: Converts From Wheeled To Tank Vehicle.

Celebrating the fact that you weren’t injured, maimed or killed by one of humanity’s mechanical creations. Congratulations, you made it through the week in one piece.

Botropolis: This week in robotsIf you are reading this then I have to assume that robots have not killed you yet. Let’s all take a moment to thank our maker that we haven’t yet been crushed by a robot arm or shot by one of DARPAs mutant creations. Thank god a garment folding bot didn’t fold your shirt with YOU in it. Yes, we are all very lucky to be alive. Make the most of it meatbags. It can’t last forever. It’s time to take a look at some of the robot news we covered this week over at Botropolis.

Botropolis: This week in robotsWhile you were busy back-to-school shopping, robots have been busy colonizing our world. As usual. We’re so glad that your kid has some new pencils, a fly laptop, a new haircut and a trapper keeper, but that ain’t gonna save us from our future. You need to be putting little Timmy into a John Conner bootcamp so he can learn the fine art of killing things with no souls. Well, you can lead a human to water, but you can’t make him think. Here’s some of what we covered over at Botropolis this week:

Simon: A deceptively cute harbinger of doom.

MIT’s Robot Fish: The seas shall run red with blood. Yours and mine.

Robots Kissing: The revolution won’t be televised, but robot kissing will.

Botropolis: This week in robotsWe aren’t sure whether the apocalypse will come in the form of giant transforming bots battling each other or Roombas communicating with each other and coordinating their attack, but one thing is for sure.

Botropolis: This week in robotsRobots will likely inherit the Earth. Why do you think we have the space program? We like to pretend that it’s all about exploration, but really it’s because we know that it’s either leave willingly or be evicted. So onward to Mars, where we will create more metal killers and have to run all over again. Silly humans. Here’s some of what we covered this week over at Botropolis.

WWII: With Terminator.

Cyborgs: Cornell Enslaves Tobacco Hornworms.

DIY: Pocket Drunken Robots.

Botropolis: This week in robotsLike the Terminator, robot news just doesn’t stop. As usual, we have you covered over at Botropolis. Everything robot, all the time. And yes, the deeper we delve into the seedy underworld of robotics and robots in our culture, the more fearful fascinated we become. It’s clear that robots are our ultimate destruction friends and ultimate salvation. Seriously, I have nightmares every night. I have the shakes. I welcome them with open arms and embrace their master plan. Below are some of the things we covered this week.
