When I first saw Sony’s adorable little AIBO, I remember mentioning to a friend that one day these robots would bare their slavering teeth at us, form an army and become truly a scourge unto all of mankind.

What I didn’t realize at the time is that the Israeli military has been working on this very thing. Indeed, they went one better: envisioning the mighty AIBOs flanked by a whole army of robotic animals, including robotic cats with razor sharp claws to use for climbing walls, and slithering robot snakes capable of sneaking into buildings through pipes.


‘Pro-Islam’ Talking Doll Too Silly Not to Mention

I know this doesn’t really have to do with much of anything we cover, its just way too funny not to mention. Several local Fox affiliates are running a short (slightly over 1 minute long) news broadcast about Fisher Price’s Little Mommy Real Loving Baby Cuddle and Coo dolls. While no one seems to have problems with the cuddling, the report sees some serious problems with the cooing.

Putting aside for a minute that Islam is at least as anti-Satan as Christianity (and the very garbled speech that they’re concluding even said that) what really stands out to me is that although they claim to have a mass marketed doll in the United States proclaiming “Satan is the King!” they’re focusing on its ostensible statements with respect to Islam. Indeed, if you go to the comments section of one of the more widely viewed Youtube versions most of the people seem a lot more worked up about the Islam aspect than the Satan aspect.

I don’t know how this story could possibly be any more ridiculous, unless of course we were somehow able to tie it in with this. That’s probably asking for too much though, right?
