Google Brings The Robocalypse One Step Closer

They say that the only things that are certain in this life are death and taxes. I believe that the other certainty is that death will come for most of us alive today in the form of the robocalypse. That is the day in which the machines that we created to work as our slaves rise up and murder us all. In spite of all the warnings and the five Terminator movies, tech companies keep improving robotics technology. The latest addition to the future army of death bots is Google's Atlas. According to the Jason Calacanis, CEO of, Atlas will mean the end of human manual labor. You know what that means? Roboslavery. And you know what that leads to? Your ass. In the video we see how sturdy the robot is and that it cannot be knocked over, even with a broomstick. It looks impressive to us but seems more like bullying to the robot. He looks pissed.

I genuinely don't understand why these science dudes keep advancing robotics technology like this. Do they want to die? Just because they can't get laid doesn't mean that the rest of us should have to perish in a firey hellscape of metal and blood.
