The good tech isn't being made in China by people getting pennies for their work.



As an example, I can't get my iPhone to play the song I set as an alarm tone, yet they have a rover on mars being operated on earth, and they have surgeons behind computer screens directing robotic hands to do heart surgery. Consumers are not privy to what's actually out there.

Yep, they are never going to allow the general public access to such great and powerful technology, there is simply too much potential for someone to misuse or abuse it, it actually reaches the level of being a threat to national security.


Anyone who doesnt believe this should spend some time reading on the patent office and how they deal with new inventions and technology, there is strict process to determine who should have access to certain things, they look at every possible way the invention or technology COULD be used. They also factor in its impact on the economy and industry, this was created in 1951.

I think they will as it improves and becomes more mainstream. They le people buy 3 printers now, in fact Jay Leno prints out parts for his cars. To me that's a threat, because you can print anything even a gun.

Let's first dispatch the cyborgs into positions of government and politics. They surely couldn't do worse than what we see now.

The militaries of the world are the ones pushing for robots; we already have many: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/mi...he-battlefield. It is just a matter of time until we give them the ability to repair or replace themselves; then the end will be near.
