ROBOT WATCH '08: IMPENDING DEATH

"Hey dude, nice robot! Where do I fuck it?"

Scientists in England have created a robot that uses rat neurons as a brain, rather than artificial intelligence. Gordon, the robot, learns by itself and is not controlled by a human or computer

While it is very impressive that a robot can now control itself and grow mentally using a biological brain, it will probably be somewhat disheartening for the scientist to watch his state of the art, intelligent creation keep getting caught in a mouse trap. It’s hard to fight technology, but it’s even harder to fight its absence.

I’ve always feared the great robot uprising, but now if they kill us all, with only rat brains, we deserve it.  All hail King Ratbot!
