Hurray for IKEA

“The Achilles Heel of modern intelligent robots appears to be the baffling world of Ikea furniture.”

Says this article in Daily Mail about Betty the Robot, I mean office manager.

Smile, you are on Betty camera!

Interestingly enough Betty (Happy Betty) is also the name of the evil dame — not a robot herself  but turning humans into robots, NOT nice! — in the Italian movie Supervip and Minivip.

Watch this episode and be transposed into one possible (robot-filled) future.

Flattr this!

Check out this video, fittingly presented by a robot voice.

Self-Learning Robot Escapes Testing Ground

I hope we don´t have to read sometime soon “Human escaped in Roboville”, but am not sure of it.

Ohh…. Look at all those CUTIES!!

Flattr this!
