Rise of the Machines?

"Robots Work In Swarms and Hives - iRobot and Frontline Robotics are teaching robots how to work together."

"The goal of iRobot's swarm project is to coordinate the actions of groups of hundreds of individual robots. A Swarm Operating System (SwarmOS) is under development to control as many as 10,000 robots or SwarmBots."

Oh sure, they're cute now......


But just consider what they tend to grow up to be....





Yeah, I'd say this article o-fficially gives me the creeps.

Fearful Yips! to the Pious Agnostic.



Yes, indeed. Scary stuff. Yips! to Colossus for reminding me.

These are the guys (actually a woman at the scientific helm) that make the bomb robots they are using in Iraq. They also make that handy little vacuum that roams the house. Of course DARPA is behind it all...
