This is the stuff of nightmares

So far on this blog I have really only included “nice” robots. The movies and some modern works of fiction like to depict robots as evil, something that is about to do away with the human race, or just enslave us – ignoring Asimov’s famous three laws of robotics.

I have to warn you, if you decide to view the following video, that you might not be able to forget it – and you probably will want to forget it.

I am a bit late finding out about this monster. It is not really a robot, more correctly it is described as an animatronic. But it does have the ability to make eye contact with you if you are in the same room as it.

In March this year, artist Jordan Wolfson exhibited his scary robotic dancer in New York. Hopefully this is not a glimpse of the future adult entertainment scene (but I am afraid to say that I think it might be).
