Robot Swims 9,000 Miles

Robopocalypse alert



Quote:
In what is surely another sign that it's just a matter of time before we're ruled by robot overlords, an American company has just announced that a robot it built swam 9,000 miles from San Francisco to Australia, braving storms and sharks along the way, and it did it without ever being refueled.

The Liquid Robotics PacX Wave Glider nicknamed "Papa Mau" spent more than a year crossing the Pacific Ocean, all the while collecting data about the ocean's ecosystem that Liquid Robotics claims orbiting satellites could never get in such detail.
This can't be good.

Re: Robot Swims 9,000 Miles

I like it. Robots are never going to rise up, and if they do they'll just kill the dick heads. Then it will be a human robot party for 1 year to become antiquated with each other and live as equals.

Re: Robot Swims 9,000 Miles

Thing to worry about is the robots deciding that they need the Internet for Robot pornography and cutting us off.
