    Those clever chaps over at Boston Dynamics have just posted a clip of their latest robot. According to the clip, one of its main uses is that you can give it a large slice of "shoe pie" when you're having a bad day. I'd be interested to know how fellow JCC members would find it useful? Personally i'd use it to bring me home from the pub, but I fear the only thing riding on its back in the near future will be a bunch of explosives.

    When that thing turns sentient, it will remember the kicking it received.

    You let me down, Patrick. I was hoping it would be robots who specifically targeted and murdered shelf-stackers. Where is my ultra-violence???

    I would hunt them for sport, even though it wouldn't be very sporting. Just like real hunting.

    I'd need to mod it a bit. Set of crushing jaws, flamethrower, that sort of thing.

    Then it could be my robo buddy and we'd get into shenanigans.

    Heheh, pleasure to meet you. It's been fun so far.

    To be honest tho, I enjoy a good excuse to reference that scene, so anytime shenanigans comes up, so does pistol whipping.

    I will use it to hunt down my enemies, then rub my shoulders as I bathe in their blood.

    This will not end well. See: Black Mirror, episode title Metalhead.

    The big questions nobody's asking yet:

    1. What happens if we download Wocky into one of those bodies?
    2. If one of the robots was destroyed, would it break Ghost's heart and make the celebrity deadpool thread?

    When life imitates Black Mirror. Really, put a combat shotgun on top of that and let it rove freely in the post apocalyptic landscape looking for stray survivors.
