I think the bigger picture making these robots is how in the future we can use their bodies and incorporate man and machine.
I want my brain to be in a robot body that will be faster, stronger and will last many years and maybe goto the stars.
The meat around our minds is not good enough, give me chrome and steel !!!
I found this video below about building robots. Now I've seen other similar videos. But it only hit me today as I think the guy gives a comparison to Asimo being like a wasp, or bee in terms of it's capacities. But then if you "REALLY THINK ABOU IT" you quickly see that Asimo and similiar bots are pretty scary. Like what's odd about it is it looks like a toy at this stage. But built up more and more you got the makings of a dooms day device.
Like we're actually seeing the first sages of our demise in operation. It's actually there right in front of us. What looks like a toy but will likely end mankind as we know it. Like all that bot and it's makers have to do is reach a stage where the bot is thinking beyond our capacities and or is also builting other bots and that's it! At any point after that they could decide that they're going to now take over the show and tell us what's what. They could so easily start to dictate what will happen to humanity.
If tptb are actually in control of them then they might use them to get rid of most people. If not then the robots might think we're like a virus and want to wipe us out. Likely one of the two scenarios could occur at some point.
The bee has become the bear, or something like that. Ahhh like when you really think about it, to actaully see this thing that could get rid of is, in it's sort of infancy is totally insane! It's like the atom B, only that we're not gonna be able to easily keep in under lock and key. It's going to be out there, replicating itself soon. Oh man we're so dead!
Like you got to really think about this...what we're seeing here is an Apple 2e or a Commador 64. All you have to do is fast forward a decade or two and you most likely have something right out of Bladerunner. Indistinguishable from a human. Oh man, this is too weird.
What do you think???
