Asimo used to be the most advanced humanoid robot on the planet but I think that Atlas has got it beat now.

When robots grab you with their metal claws, you can’t break free because they’re metal and robots are strong.

Thats pretty sad then, this is fairly archaic technology. Have you seen the robotic sex dolls coming out of Japan? They look, act and move just like a human being, its actually hard to tell the difference by just looking at it, compared to those, this 'robot' looks like something from the 1980s.

And that was how long ago?

Technology moves at a breathtaking pace these days.

Technology is already on the cusp of self propagation, in many ways.

Shrug. Elon Musk believes the answer is to take over from our natural evolution, and start merging with them.

The idea is to use neural lace for a initial boost, and then later merge it in with onboard AI systems.

The future is going to be wild.

Has anyone checked to make sure Musk isn't a robot or android?
