DailyDirt: Robots That Save Lives

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Robots are becoming essential tools for all sorts of tasks. Some jobs that simply can't be done by people are perfect for remote-controlled machines. As a tribute to our hard-working metal friends, here's a short list of some bots that are making the world a safer place. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Machines

    You can post all the feel-good robot stories you like, but that won't change the fact that 3 billion human lives will end on August 29th, 2018, and that the survivors of the nuclear fire will live only to face a new nightmare...

    ...the war against the Machines.

    Re: Machines

    Nonsense! Nostradamus predicted it would all end in July 1999.

    Or actually September 1999, because amazing seer he was, he failed to predict the change from Julian to Gregorian calendars.
