The New York Times recently had a scare piece about a new generation of robots come to take our jobs. More agile, more precise, more flexible, more capable… they will deindustrialize America!
But I saw this and thought, “when do I get one?” It’s as if these people have never seen Thingiverse, or a Reprap, or contemplated a self-replicating robot. Apparently they haven’t.
Perhaps these robots are far more revolutionary than they realize.
