All Hail Our Robot Masters

Posted By on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 7:41 PM

Hank Stephenson interviews Daniel Carrillo, a junior at Pueblo Magnet High School and president of a team that's built an award-winning robot, this week. Carrillo brushed off the notion that his robot might one day destroy humanity:

But isn't that just what you'd expect him to say, if indeed the robot was planning to enslave all of us?

Cue the Onion News Network:


In The Know: Are We Giving The Robots That Run Our Society Too Much Power?
