Honda has a robot called "ASIMO" I'm not sure what it stands for, but what I am sure of, it's something along the lines of "We're screwed". I'm sure you've most likely heard about it, it's been around for almost a decade now.

No ASIMO! Not the children!

Role reversal at it's finest.

Just The Facts

  1. This thing is completely autonomous. You know, it doesn't need you or any of your human friends to tell it what to do.
  2. They also know when they need to recharge. And here you thought you could hide until the battery wore out, thus avoiding being a human slave in the silicone mines.
  3. Since 05' Honda has been trying to progress these guys and make them smarter.

Enslavement: ASIMO

Honda isn't going to stop. The robots have continuously improved, Honda says "We will continue to our efforts to further advance intelligence technologies with the goal to develop a robot which can be truly useful in a real world environment where coexisting with people is required" (and I swear I heard someone say "find Sarah Connor" under their breath) And what about the robot apocalypse?! They brought one of these things to Moscow for a car show, and I guess the Russians thought it was a transformer or something, and promptly attacked Georgia, upon entering the country, Russia and "ASIMO Military Command Unit 1", as their leader has come to be known formed an alliance. Ok, so I made that last part up, but don't you see how easy it is to make one of these all evil?

So these guys have been around for a long while, no doubt sent from some evil robot planet to spy on us and learn what our weaknesses are. Guess what? We are pretty weak against Robots. So I'd say we're out of luck. Let's just hope that they don't force us to live underground in tunnels, and have oatmeal for every meal. That would get really old, really fast.
So next time you say "Man, that would be so awesome to have a robot!"
Think twice.
