A hair-washing robot from (who else) the Japanese:

Obviously in case it accidentally crushed someone's skull before going on a shampoo-fueled rampage.

That one you can see coming.

This one could get into your house through a cat flap or through the roof!

That is amazing and cute at the same time. They should put bunny ears on it or something.

So if HRP-4C and BIGDOG got in a fight, who do you think would win?

Four dancers with Uhura-regulation skirts around that robot, and all I could think was "Will one of you please just give that thing your soul already.  Christ."

A robot built with lego that can build other things out of lego. Awesome.

Actroid-F made a public showing in Tokyo a few days ago, dressed as a nurse who could work in hospitals as an “observer”.

Her maker, Japan-based robot maker Kokoro, says that she is supposed to give patients a heightened sense of security.

"Safe" is the exact opposite of how this thing makes me feel.

I feel like at any moment its head could snap back, screech in some unintelligible electronic interference, and shoot blinding lights out of every orifice.

There is a trend here in that I fear most of these robots will eventually go on a violent rampage.

I can't imagine that the blob bot's rampage would be very successful.

I imagine the blob bot would prefer something more along the lines of an "assimilation". And since it can squeeze though keyholes and shit.... fuck.

Oh my god, I actually live on the tip of Logical Penguin's penis.
