    Wait -- did I really take off the day BEFORE Grand Theft Auto 5 came out? I need to get better at life. Well, if we're being honest, I need to get better at a lot of things, including being a better friend. Jk jk, I secretly hate everyone I know. Because bees are nature's l... / Continue →

    Remember DARPA and Boston Dynamic's PETMAN? Well now they're back with a new humanoid robot, Atlas. Atlas is the evolved version of this prototype I posted awhile ago. Can he take a 20-lb medicine ball to the hip and keep his balance? Yes. Is he arc-reactor powered? It su... / Continue →

    This is a video of two autonomous quadrocopters that can toss a spear back and forth and balance it on its end. These things are seriously getting out of control. I don't care what the government tries to tell you, there's no legitimate human-interest purpose for spear throwi... / Continue →

    Hexapod robots: they're no good. Qaudrocopters: they're no good. Put them together and what do you get? 40-times the no good (robots breed exponentially -- think rabbits, but nothing you'd ever want to see a magician pull out of a hat). This is the Hexapod Quadrocopter (whi... / Continue →

    Scientists at Harvard University have created a cyborg tissue consisting of lab-grown flesh embedded with nano-wires that has the same "sensing" properties as human skin. This is all going to end very poorly. Probably with an army of cyborgs that look human. 'Ultimately, thi... / Continue →

    As a pathetic man-child who's no stranger to passing out drunk on the bathroom floor, I've gotten an ant's eye view of the room on several occasions. Some weeks more days than not. But enough about my debilitating life-coping mechanisms, this is a series of photographs by Mic... / Continue →

    This is a brutally crappy quality video of a robot at ETH Zurich that's been taught how to make it's own tools by building layers of hot glue. In the video it makes a little cup to transfer water from one cat food bowl to another, and only took 55-minutes! Your cat would be l... / Continue →

    The robot apocalypse nears, blah blah blah, if you don't believe me already you probably never will and, quite frankly, don't deserve to survive the uprising. I'm not saying I'm going to throw you to the robots, but I will tie your shoelaces together and club your knees so you... / Continue →

    The University of Pennsylvania's Grasp Lab quadrocopters, of which we've already seen way more than enough to prove that they'll kill us all, are back at it, this time with the ability to follow a leader in some sort of synchronized flying ballet. Swan Lake it is not. Coming ... / Continue →

    This is a fully functional Terminator hand. It can operate with both the gentle caress of a feather OR CHOKE YOU OUT UNTIL YOUR EYES ROLL BACK IN YOUR HEAD with equal dexterity. Which -- $10 if you let it give you an HJ without flinching. Developed by the Institute of Roboti... / Continue →

    Because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned robot armed, Japanese firm Mayekawa Electric has developed a robot programmed to bone a ham. And not like that pervert Old MacDonald either, I'm talking about actually removing the bone from the meat with a blade. Yipes! Until... / Continue →

    Japan, Japan, Japan -- what are we gonna do with you? KNOCK IT OFF WITH ALL THE ROBOTS ALREADY! You're giving me butt ulcers. Japanese researchers created a baby robot designed to simulate the behavior and development of a real infant in an effort to better understand how hu... / Continue →

    I don't know if you could tell by the title but I was implying that I would tear that robotic bastard limb from limb right there in aisle four between the baby food and Maxi-Pads. Ain't no robot handling these eggs! The robotic assistant -- an advanced version of the Robovie-... / Continue →

    This is a video of a dancing robot girl that was shot (the footage, not the robot -- unfortunately) during the very disturbing (and fundamentally wrong) ROBO-ONE GATE Dance Competition. A dancing robot competition? Really? That's it, I'm heading to the moon. The 6th ROBO-... / Continue →
