Reader Jeff Yoders has alerted me to a report that iRobot, maker of the Roomba, is creating “chembots” that are capable of morphing in size. Such shapeshifting would allow robots to slip between cracks and under doors. The project is being funded by DARPA, which conducts advanced research for the U.S. military.
I think we all know how this ends.
I have already tackled the question of whether or not these chembots will have the ability to love here.
Once again, man’s use of reason and force will be called upon to defeat an unfeeling killing machine hellbent on human destruction. Only this time it will have been descended from a vacuum cleaner.
