Have you seen the report from the Magna centre, near Sheffield, about the intelligent robots they've got set up there?
There are preditor bots and prey bots.
The prey bots charge their batteries from randomly rotating spot lights and move around the arena.
The preditor bots charge their batteries from the prey bots, as and when they catch them, learning from each experience.
It is thought that the preditors may become intelligent enough to hunt in packs.
Universal Soldier here we come ?

        If robots become self-sufficient,  why would they keep humans around?  As THEIR SERVANTS? Kinda scary thought!

I think we will be safe as long as we limit the bots "universe" to the perimiter of their present arena.
(My god, what if they learn to fly aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh!)
P.S.
   The bot of Kylie is as devoid of life as the head of same.  :-*

Excellent film.
Makes you wonder what Microsoft and Intel have planned for us in the future.  ;)

An interesting article with a little bit different twist. Part human and part machine, as in a human cyborg. Apparently a British university professor has been fitted with cyborg technology in his nervous system linking him to a computer. For more details, CLICK HERE

                  That sounds hopeful,  especially for people with disabilities.  
                   It states that the same man has already received an implant to control the lights and doors to his office!!   Talk about remote control!!
