Skynet can't be far off.....

I like technology as much as the next guy, in fact I built prototype electronics in a research lab for 6 of the longest years of my life. Well, ok so THAT 6 years kinda killed it for me but I still dig all the new whizzy gadgets that pop up. But.....

This cute little guy is just happily doing his thing here, but I can't help but worry a little. How far away are we from autonomous, MOTILE robots? Ones that grandma can send out to the market for a loaf of bread or that will fill your gas tank or patrol the streets and enforce our over abundant laws? How long till some Douche-nozzle hacker figures out how to control them and make them do bad steal motorcycles!

Ok that was fun, but in truth this is just neat. The little guy stops, starts, steers and balances this little bicycle without external assistance.
