    Link: Honda Asimo`s Waiter - Remember the Asimo robot that played the trumpet last week? Here it is as a waiter. How long before it enslaves humans?

    Here are I-A-B`s other Asimo clips...

    Asimo plays the trumpet.

    Asimo eats crap on the stairs (I think this was an easly version of the robot).

    3 Days? If he can be a waiter, he can certainly enslave all mankind in a torrent of cold rage and violence.

    I`m getting kinda freaked out. How are you gonna control them? These ones I`m sure you can just tip over and let them lay there until the batteries are dead. But what about the future ones? OMGOMGOMG!

    Damn fearmongers. Aint you ever seen I Robot? If that movie has taught us anything (along with many others), its that Will Smith will make everything right in the end.

    Meh, a waste of time and money. A human could do that in under 10 seconds- and only cost minimum wage, (less if he/she`s an illegal).

    The scary part of all this is that we could really be only one generation away from the universal soldier... Which means Asia will rule the world :(

    Tankity, this is merely a step, the sheer fact that they have robots that can perform the simple function is amazing. plus all they need to do is add speed, which could easily be done by adding 2 more legs or giving it wheels for a base or anything. they have the legs to merely show off

    Exactly what the description says. How long until it replaces us? And of course it is the Japanese who are making this stuff. What`s so special about it? Are people becoming this lazy that they have to make robots do everything for them?

    Man, if a waiter was this bloody slow, he`d be canned within minutes. I guess it just shows you that while these robots are impressive, they have a long way to go in order to achieve what we`re able to do so easily.

    I was just waiting for it to go crazy and start killing reporters. Then when I saw the second one appear out of nowhere I knew at any moment an entire army of them was going to appear and start enslaving humanity .... for now they wait in the shadows.

    Machines are doing a better job then anyone else ever could at no price ( other then the price of the machine itself ) no wonder everyone in the manufacturing industry are getting canned all the time.

    Humans have to learn to live in another type of society that would not be as competitive.

    Resource based economy, now.

    27yrs for human slavery by robots... and counting.

    But don`t worry. We`ll kind of like it. In fact, we`ll pay for it.

    they cant enslave us if we dont program violence. the adverse is that if we can teach them to fight wars, no more human casualties; again we lead to the turning the violence on their owners...

    if the robots can obey the 3 rules of robotics then we are fine, but if they decide to violate any of the rules, mainly the first, we are screwed.

    To the people that say that the robots suck because it`s taken a few years and they still can`t do what we can, remember this. It took millions of years of evolution to let us do what we can, so these robots being able to do that much in what, 12 years of development MAX? That`s killing nature`s pace.

    Because we designed them with the intelligence we have now, or we tried to. They aren`t like us starting from a small organism changing over millions of years, they started at about what we are capable, minus our brain power. Machine will never be better than man.
