Japanese Robots Becoming Self-Aware!!

Holy crap. I am officially freaking out. If you haven’t seen this, you need to watch it immediately. Toyota has developed a robot humanoid thing that can run by itself, and when pushed off balance, it can right itself. In a matter of months, it will be able to push back! In a matter of years, it will have the ability to ski down slopes the likes of La Chavanette in Avoriaz, France (scary scary) with a speed and agility no human can muster! I can picture a whole new Warren Miller type series devoted to robot skiers and snowboarders. Except if the robots eat it on the slope and break, they’d be a lot more expensive to fix than humans. Actually, with the way our healthcare system is, the costs would probably be comparable. Zing! Take that Washington! Seriously though, this shiz is freaky. We need some John Connor whupass to nip this in the bud. Take a look here!
