Oh Goody: Humanoid Robot Planning A People Zoo

January 17, 2012


This is a video of a reporter having a conversation with a humanoid robot, who eventually (~2:30) divulges his plans to build a people zoo. And only for the "friends" that he likes, the rest he'll just kill. Does that mean you'll have to befriend a robot to survive the uprising? I'm afraid so. "But I thought you had a plan!" Well I lied. Besides, zoo life isn't so bad -- just go ask the monkeys.

Well? "They threw shit at me." Haha, we're gonna do that too! The key is catching it right as it comes out so the robots don't know we're packin'.

Hit the jump for the I'd rather test-fly jetpack prototypes designed by middle-schoolers.


Thanks to Fatwoul, zequi and Dan, who are already planning an escape in case it turns out to be a heavy petting zoo.

    Oh god, the fake smile at the end!!! So glad my submission made the cut.

    That was probably one of the creepiest things I have ever seen.

    Just don't let it watch "The Matrix". It might start getting OTHER ideas...

  • Im going to go kill myself now.

    They used a clip from Terminator 2 defending the human race to illustrate a robot uprising against mankind... Fail.

    Also. I love that the new commenting system puts 'FIRST!' posts last :)

    Anyone remember Westworld?  This seems kind of like that.  We're effed.

    Ya this is from a nova show, you could really do a much better job investigating what you post here and not just giving it the standard irrational fear of automation argument you typically use. SMH

    Not going to mention that this robot is meant to be deceased author Phillip K. Dick? kind of important info and y'know... geek relevant.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Holy crap... I don't know how I didn't recognize ol' PK!?

    I would have asked him, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?"

    And he would've been all like, "Time to die!"

  • CleverBot ?

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Nope... his responses made entirely too much sense to be CleverBot.

    I, for one, welcome our new "most interesting man in the world" overlords.
