Be prepared Heavy readers for the days when you could be sharing a workspace with a robot maybe closer than you think. We’re not quite at the stage of say I, Robot or creating leather jacket, shot gun carrying cyborgs like The Terminator, but advances in robotic technology are getting closer and closer to the stuff of movie fantasy. Some of it’s actually pretty creepy, but mostly cool as long as the machines don’t enslave the entire human race anytime soon. Okay, maybe I’m overreacting just a little bit, but check out these crazy advances in the world of science and judge for yourself.
Robotic Water Snake
Probably the creepiest pool toy you could ever imagine. It’s only a matter of time before these things are equipped with cameras and used to spy on enemy ships.
Robotic Logging Machine
A giant bug-like machine equipped with chainsaws that slowly stomps through the forest. It strikes fear into the hearts of woodland creatures and tree-huggers alike.
Crazy Laser Technology
I gotta be honest, I have no idea how this technology works or if it’s even real. But regardless, the video is super cool and surely beats the hell out of those lame laser pointer pins.
