Jul 20 2009EATR Robot NOT Designed To Eat Dead Bodies, Or, How A Company Backpedals

EATR.jpg

Cyclone Power Technologies, the company behind the Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot (EATR), denies that it was designed to dine on human corpses. Obviously, they're lying through their oil-stained, robot loving teeth.

"We completely understand the public's concern about futuristic robots feeding on the human population, but that is not our mission," said Harry Schoell, CEO of Cyclone Power Technologies. "We are focused on demonstrating that our engines can create usable, green power from plentiful, renewable plant matter."

Let me tell you a little personal story: I used to be vegetarian. Now I eat the hell out of some meat. Draw your own conclusion.

Hi! I'm one of the engineers working on EATR, and just wanted to let you know that EATR has no ability to deal with proteins - meat - at all. It can only "digest" or process plant material, and it prefers dried out leaves, twigs, and branches-in other words, dead plants. We don't have any way to convert animal parts into energy. You can see more at my blog, http://mrrobot0.blogspot.com. We do appreciate that you found our project interesting.

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max found out soylant green was made of people.

Hmmm. I thought I would give your blog a try and you know what I discovered? That you smell a lot like a traitor to the human race! I mean have some pride! If you are going to side with the robots in the oncoming war than you need to be honest with yourself. As least transfer your brain to a cyborg body or something. Geez.

@21
