blackheisei: (Doomed!)
I found this website and it struck me as being a little too Science Fiction to believe. Strangely enough, it is really real.

Get ready, because in twenty years they will have taken over! First Japan, then the world! Soon we'll be walking our dogs on treadmills and walking around with microchips in our ears! ....oh, wait. that part has already happened. Stupid bluetooth, bringing us this much closer to the end of the world.

What is this website I'm ranting about? Technically, it's Honda's official website. It's not the cars I'm complaining about, though. it's the robot. the humanoid robot, that can run in circles, climb stairs, carry trays, push carts, bow, dance, respond to verbal cues, recognize people, walk hand in hand with someone, remember locations, and lead people there. Oh, he talks too.

His name is Asimo, and he is the herald of our DOOM.

... Actually, I think it's pretty cool... It is rather disturbing to see yet another 1960's scifi prediction come true, but... you know me. I like to be dramatic sometimes. It keeps people on their toes.

BTW: the wonderful icon was made by [livejournal.com profile] creatingmyths. She made it, and let me steal it. ^_^
