Mesmerizing Robot Videos Make Dystopian Future More Palatable

As we mentioned recently, highly advanced autonomous robot soldiers will soon start start killing humans indiscriminately. Now The Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan notes that at least it's going to look awesome when they do.

The human at the start of that first video seems to have some sort of death wish or something. Pushing a robot?! Are you crazy?!

Note how this next robot uses a small yellow ball to simulate dribbling a human head.

As long as no one teaches the robots the "Serpentine! Serpentine!" move we're probably still safe.

What happens if you trip it?

The first robot may have Twiki's head, but he also has the posture of a UPS man.
