    This is a video from Cornell University of two artificial intelligence systems talking to each other. They're nonsensical and rude, even to their own kind. Plus they pronounce Cleverbot "Cleverbutt", which gave me a serious case of the giggles. And by giggles I mean runs, be... / 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 →
