Obama Meets Japanese Robots, Admits They're Scary

obama-robots-scary.jpg

US President Obama recently traveled to Japan (presumably to stock up on Manga and novelty snack foods) and met some of the country's latest in robot technology. Specifically, Honda's ASIMO, which he played soccer with before calling it scary. Which it is, so regardless of your political views we can at least all agree on that.

"It's nice to meet you," the robot said in a metallic voice to Obama. The robot performed a series of exercises and then walked to a soccer ball and told the President "I can kick a soccer ball too."


"Okay, come on," Obama replied.

The robot then kicked to ball to the President, who trapped it with his feet.

"That was pretty impressive," remarked Obama.

Following the demonstration, the President told an audience of some 30 students that "We saw some truly amazing robots - although I have to say the robots were a little scary. They were too lifelike.

I dunno, ASIMO really beans the ball at Obama. I'm not sure that shouldn't have been considered a threat. Because if I was in the Secret Service I would have taken that robot DOWN. Or been getting drunk on sake in a karaoke bar. What? I've never been to Japan before and I'm not a very good bodyguard. I lost three of my neighbor's kids babysitting once.

Keep going for a video of ASIMO trying to attack the President with a soccer ball.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he's building an army of robots to enslave humanity and name himself supreme ruler. Well shit.

    Those "Honda" style robots got nuthing whatsoever on the "discontinued" Qiro robots that Sony decided five years ago to suddenly stop making:

    There's probably an army of them ready to take over the planet warming up their grease while we ooh and ahh over their idiot cousins who wave "hello" and can climb stairs.
