Japan, Your Sushi Making Robot Doesn't Impress Me

Posted By on Fri, Apr 6, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Usually, I find robots deeply frightening, assuming they exist to first comfort us with their helpfulness, then rise as one to destroy or enslave the human race, but if this sushi making robot is the best our future electronic overlords have to offer, I think we might have another decade left of societal dominance. After all, someone has to load the seaweed and fish for the robot to do the rest of the work. How do you expect to lull us in to submission like that, robots?

In other sushi news, Jiro Dreams of Sushi opens at the Loft today and it's 81 minutes of magic. You should check it out if you enjoy craftsmanship, food, or wonderful things.
