Put Tom Selleck on call...

Postby Quasigriz » Tue Mar 06, 2012 7:54 am

Very cool robot vid:


Lots of interesting things goin on in robotics at the moment. Curious when they are going to be moving past roomba for home robotics. Asimo would do well running the vacuum around my house and chasing my dogs while I'm off at work.

Frankly, I'd rather vacuum and chase the dogs while ASIMO is off at work.
You know what the sad thing is?

We spend 90% of our lives ducking shit storms, begging for money and whoring for votes.

And why do we put ourselves through all that? In order to hold onto jobs that are 90% ducking shit storms, begging for money, and whoring for votes.

Fine, I'll bite. What's the connection between Tom Selleck and robots?
Was the answer in that flubbed YouTube link?
