When Robots Control The Earth

Cool potential name for an upcoming James Cameron flic, but the reality is this is the future I see for humanity.

Hitachi released the news on March 16 that it had developed a new robot, which joins one by Honda and Sony has one, as well.

With these disturbing developments I give humanity only few more years of freedom before it is enslaved by these Jetson's rejects. If television and the movies have taught us one thing it is robots will always end up running amok and killing humans. Just see the Teminator flicks or Westworld. The Lost in Space family was always having trouble with alien robots and Capt. Kirk battled computers gone mad and even a giant planet eating robot.

What are the Japanese thinking? Don't they watch enough TV? You don't see American engineers wasting their time creating the future overlords of Earth. Hell no. They are out their developing gus guzzling SUVs, better HDTVs and faster broadband connections so people can view pornography at the speed of light.

The only robots we created were from NASA and we sent them to Mars, where they likely will develop innate intelligence, build a robot army and spaceships then return to Earth seeking vengeance upon the people who exiled them to Mars.

Of course, don't forget about the various cyborgs that have caused their share of trouble. Notable entries in this category would be The Borg from Star Trek and General Grevious from Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. (Now that I think about it, Darth Vader and The Six Million Dollar Man also belong here.) In anticipation of the creation of our cyborg masters, one Japanese scientist was quoted as saying, "Humans may be able to mutate into supermen in the near future."
