Like A Hot Knife Through Butter

Undefined

We have achieved a milestone. In our chronicaling of all of the potential problems of sophisticated robotics, we believe we have rarely been as frightened by a development as this one.

The, clearly masterful, Evil Robot Acolytes (and, as always, we use that term advisedly) at the Carrara Robotics "division" of Coletek Robotics are fostering a fresh abomination to take shape.

A device which they have ruefully allowed to openly wield a diamond cable cutter, to horrifying effect. This punishing automaton, makes easy work of marble, forming and shaping it with an alarmingly deft touch. We can only assume that it would make even shorter work of any softer material, say, a mailman or the dog that may be chasing the mailman, proceeding on down the block to just eviscerate the whole damned neighborhood.


Just look at it writhe beneath it's cheap blue tarp of evil!


Witness the fitness...




" There are lots of fun ways to watch machines show-off: see them play massive Jenga games; ooh and aah as they draw peens and portraits; or, in the case of Carrara Robotics, check out a wire-saw saturated with diamond dust slice through a chunk of marble like it is absolutely nothing. "
