When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

So what's your problem, I see nothing to be afraid of.

Now when it looks like this I might be afraid.

That’s pretty good. My favourite is still the Atlas robot doing a backflip.

Just saw this on Netflix. Called "Black Mirror" its a collection a short movies about Technology and the dark side....they had one called "Metal Head" about robot dogs going out and killing people. Dont know the origin of why they were killing but looks like it has been going for awhile. and the movement of the on in the film is just like the yellow ones....

In the movie I, Robot with Will Smith, I like the artificial muscle tissue concept on the newer robots. Just like electric cars, energy density will be an issue unless you can get away from motors and gears and use a form of artificial electroactive material. A robot will have to be able to sense and understand the real world before it can be any sort of danger. We are a few lifetimes away from seeing anything remotely autonomously dangerous, and even then on the cusp of being able to bring such a product to market, I don't believe they will be dangerous since man has 100% control over the entire design and manufacturing process from electronics to software or what-ever it will be.
Materials science is coming a long ways and soon we will have things like crystalline aluminum and various other metal alloys that will be lighter than water, as strong as steel, and will benefit many industries including automotive, etc.

Be more afraid of the current taurid meteor showers. Some say a big one is hiding in there. We could get wacked like we did during the younger dryas that ended the last ice age!
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.
