Fools!: Researchers Teach Robot To Pilot Flight Simulator

September 23, 2014

In this will all end very poorly news, researchers in South Korea have taught a little humanoid robot to pilot a flight simulator. Admittedly, it does pretty well. So, let's say in a couple years they have the technology for robots to fly passenger planes autonomously. Would you rather be flown around by a robot or a human? "A DRAGON." Good f***ing answer. When reached for comment about South Korea's robot pilot, North Korea informed me they already have robots flying commercial flights, and recently welcomed the safe return of a pair of autonomous robot astronauts who traveled to the surface of the sun and back to bring home rainbow crystals.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Mungo9000, who agrees robots shouldn't be flying anything but themselves into volcanoes.

    Commercial planes already are computer controlled, they just need the pilot for take off, landing and emergencies.

    upvotes lost all meaning the day they removed the downvote button anyway (leaving only a sad vestige to be pressed in the same way the decorative crosswalk buttons that make up the bulk of

    the bulk of what??? You had me hooked with this 'sad vestige' start and now I'm left hanging, tormented by the idea of what it could be! AHHH! TELL ME MAN! TELL MEEEEEEE! (you are very right though, without the down vote the up vote loses meaning. Like Ying without the Yang, life without porn, internet without cats etc.)
