    And now...

    PINGUBOTS

    The end of the video looks like it's straight out of a sci-fi movie.

    Why would you do that?

    That's just asking for human annihilation.

    The next step is a booth located near pubs after closing with a hologram of a sexy lady holding a kebab.

    The beginning of morphing robots...

    No, it's not much to look at now.

    I was really impressed until the action soundtrack, science-bit graphics and flashy editing attempted to make an inflating and deflating ball all dynamic and exciting.

    Still, possibilities...

    Lockheed Martin HULC exoskeleton - it's a promo, but there are some interesting bits and bobs in there.

    Robotics is really fascinating, it's strange that they're largely ignored as an area of science. They are going to be such a huge part of our future, a lot of the stuff we see in sci-fi is going to be technically feasible within this century.

    That was awesome, the potential for heavy lifting etc is really big.

    I think that the term you are looking for isn't robot as a robot is a stupid object that only does what it is told to do. It is no more self aware than a brick.
    If robots would be our masters then it wouldn't actually be them who would rule us but the entities that control the robots.
    Ooooh.

    Aren't we pretty much already there but with generals and governments?

    We're already used to it, so I think we'd adapt pretty well to being kept in line by robot legions and soon afterwards by robot masters, and then being made redundant by Poor Robots who work for mechanical peanuts.

    Ooh cool.

    I was reading the other day about Robot Jockeys in Qatar.

    In Qatar, the Emir of Qatar, Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, banned child jockeys in 2005 and directed that, by 2007, all camel races would be directed by robotic jockeys.




    Apparently they are radio-controlled by people driving alongside in cars on the bigger tracks.

    Also, Amazon just paid $775m for a robot warehouse specialist company names Kiva.

    Day in the life of a warehouse robot will show you why...

    So, those fuckers at Boston Dynamics who made the evil Big Dog, and apparently at least one of those syperfast Cheetah things have made their first forays into disguising their robots as people, with their presumably ironically named 'Petman'.

    Kill it. Kill it with fire!

    When it has one of those US Navy lasers on it you won't care how it walks.
