    ERROR, ERROR, 'DOOR' DOES NOT COMPUTE. INITIATING SELF-DESTRUCT SEQUENCE. This is a VERY watchable video compilation of robots falling down while trying to complete DARPA's Robotics Challenge this year. Pathetic robots! They all seemed way too top heavy, plus built by peopl... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Owain's killer robot Halloween costume. He's particularly proud of it because he found a way to still drink while wearing a mask. Clever, Owain. I mean I'm still gonna kill you, but clever. Picture... / Continue →

    Because I refuse to give robots the satisfaction of celebrating their victories (however small) on the actual day, the anniversary was yesterday. FINE -- I'M SLOW, OKAY?! 90 years ago yesterday the word 'robot' made it's first appearance, in, of all things, a Czech play. His... / Continue →

    Remember Israel's robotic snake army? Well now when you cut them they just turn into more, littler robotic snakes. Which is exactly why we'll have to burn them. Instead of being built like a normal snake with a head at one end and a tail at the other, each segment of this sn... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because I already soiled the front page enough for the both of us. This is a video of 20 creepy-ass little robots all dancing in sync. And I mean in sync as in they all do the same thing at the same time, not 'NSync the talented boy band with all... / Continue →

    I know I reported last year that July 21st, 1984 was the date of the first US robot killing, but, well, maybe that was wrong. Or maybe this one's wrong. But whatever the case, I'm always right. Always. 1979: A 25-year-old Ford Motor assembly line worker is killed on the job... / Continue →

    Want to look like you're a cyborg or some shit? I couldn't imagine why (unless you want me to brain you with a crowbar), but if you do, just glue an on/off switch to the back of your head like Dominic Wilcox did. But, WARNING: your hats won't fit the same! Neat idea, Dominic... / Continue →

    Typically I find crazy homeless people cute with their funny signs and nonsensical babble. But not this one. You get no batteries, you hear me -- NO BATTERIES FOR YOU! I'll tell you what -- I would push this sucker down a flight of subway stairs like a street vendor's cart a... / Continue →

    In an experiment that shouldn't surprise anybody with half a brain that sleeps with a giant robot-burning laser under their pillow, scientists have shown that robots have the ability to evolve and lie. And this is to one another -- imagine what they'd tell a human! Also, this... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of different robotic hands showing how dexterous they are at bouncing balls, gripping things, throwing things, catching things and a bunch of other fun stuff robots shouldn't be allowed to do. I mean, what is this, robot gym class? Next thing you kn... / Continue →

    Just look at that picture. Do you see anything wrong with it? If you answered, "yes -- absolutely everything, there is not a single thing right about that photo", congratulations, there's hope for you yet. Anyway, a group of hellbent fools at the Developmental Robotics Labo... / Continue →

    Be quiet for a second. You hear that? It's your Roomba singing "Oh Happy Day" because today marks the 25th anniversary of the first robotic death in the United States. That's right -- on July 21st, 1984, a factory worker was crushed to death by a robot in Jackson, Michigan. ... / Continue →

    Let's not kid ourselves, robots are going to to take over the planet and only farm us for use as bio-fuel and cage fighters. And, apparently there has been arobotic conspiracy involving the Chicago Bulls logo for some time. And to think, I used to want to be like Mike. When ... / Continue →

    Well we've already seen robots that can feed on organic matter, and now, an even scarier one. Wait, does that say chainsaw? Robotic Technology Inc.'s Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot -- that's right, "EATR" -- "can find, ingest, and extract energy from biomass in the e... / Continue →

    Writing that title alone gave me heart trouble. It was hairy there for a minute, I almost Michael Jacksoned on you. Anyway, more robotic death. Remember: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Unfortunately, these will kill you. Researchers at the Israel Institute of Te... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy's robot girlfriend that's been programmed to make him coffee. You know, JUST LIKE A GOOD GIRLFRIEND SHOULD. Am I right, honey? Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be sleeping in the car. BUT ONLY BECAUSE IT HAS AM/FM RADIO. Youtube Thanks to shogunu,... / Continue →

    Well folks, it looks like we're starting Friday off entirely wrong with only stories from the robot front. I recommend running out for beer now so you can stay safely tucked away in your robot-shelter all weekend building a powerful burning laser blaster. I'm not even kidding... / Continue →

    When I'm right, I'm right. And I was right. This is what death looks like. Sculptor Kenji Yanobe's Giant Torayan robot, a 7.2-meter (24-ft) tall mechanical baby that sings, dances and spits fire, was sighted in Tokyo's Roppongi district last night. The fire-breathing robot s... / Continue →

    This is a Saturday Night Live skit from like 1995, so it's old as all hell, I know that. But I think it's important to note how much more seriously people used to take the robot threat than they do now. What's going on? Ya best protect ya neck! And now, thanks to Old Glory ... / Continue →
