Never being a paper to miss out on an opportunity to hyperbolise new robot technologies, The Daily Mail have done it again, welcoming yet another Technological Threat to Humankind on its pages today.
Despite, as they themselves report, the Atlas robot being
built to help respond to disasters, such as the Fukushima nuclear reaction meltdown in Japan in 2011
and as they also begrudgingly accept, it still lacks a brain,
it looks like it could easily star in the Terminator films.
In case the photo accompanying the press release doesn’t look scary enough, they’ve even helpfully supplied a picture to better illustrate why you completely and absolutely need to be afraid of this new threat to human existence!
