Will this be the next state of warfare? Will we have gone to far? Will we survive? …… Has this already begun? A short flix with severe moral implications….

Deus Ex: The Eyeborg Documentary

leave a comment »

How a film maker became a cyborg and filmed the world of cyborg technology. What the future may hold we can only guess, but with this film we get a look at what is available today.
Robotic technology is not just for Androids. Now we Humans are incorporating these same technologies into the ourselves to not only repair, but to improve our conditions. We are evolving with the help of technology.

Tennis volley playing Robots

I have highlighted the rise of the machines here before. To add to this now we find that the machines are starting to enjoy themselves and participating in human endeavors of play. They seem to really keep their “eyes” on the ball.
Enjoy

Robot bird takes to the sky

leave a comment »

Early attempts by our ancient ancestors to create artificial flight often resulted with a design which attempted to mimic the graceful flapping motions of our avian neighbors. Flying suits shaped like that of a bird were often entertained, but more often became death traps for the inventor. Fixed wing gliders were able to be created which flew, but one where there was actual flapping and motions of a birds wings was found to be very difficult and impracticable. Today we have robotics which are reaching greater and greater levels of sophistication. This video shows something which up till now was not an easy feat. An artificial bird which fly’s like a real bird using the motions of “Stroke wing generators”

As you might find on this web site, Robotics have addressed many artificial life forms, Birds, Fish, Dogs, Humans. The Advent of an IRobot society is here and will only become more advanced as we move forward. The social implications are mind numbing. The Benefits and Dangers are many and to numerous to count. We can only hope that Humanity wakes up enough to be aware that these same technologies we create to enhance our lives, does not destroy it in the process.

For more on this follow the link below to the New Scientist for a full article on this amazing bird.

Geminoid DK: An ultra-realistic android announced

Geminoid DK: An ultra-realistic android announced (w/ Video)

(PhysOrg.com) — The uncanny valley is getting smaller every day. For those of you not familiar with that concept, the uncanny valley is a term, first coined by researchers in Japan, that explains the innate human ability to know when a humanoid robot is just not human, a creepy feeling. A new generation of ultra-realistic robots may make these distinctions harder to make.

Now a humaniod robot designed to take your job away.

leave a comment »

Its bad enough that the changing economy has been producing less and less jobs for the common man. Now the Japanese have gone and produced an Android robotic worker that is designed to replace persons in the job market.   We are a strange race which brings about its own extinction.
