As if you needed another reason to prepare for Robot Armageddon (the Zombie Apocalypse is so 2008), here's one anyway: robots are currently being taught how to use Samurai weapons.

That's right, not only will they be able to use a phased plasma weapon in the 40 watt range, they'll be able to slice your ass in hand-to-claw combat. Good luck: I hope to be dead long before this happens while the rest of you poor suckers have to figure out where the hell you're supposed to stab the robots.

LOL I knew someone would post that robot dog. But I won't be impressed until it can chase its tail like a real dog.

Elon Musk says you might not have much free time before robots start their bio-cleansing campaign.

They need to install the katana robot as a turret platform on top of the Big Dog.

Hahaha you've only seen four legged robots?

Ever seen a hexapod?

Imagine a 10 or 20 foot tall version of this thing. With multiple katana attachments.

Fucking terrifying, your worst Terminator Hunter Killer nightmare come true.

You won't wait long but if you want to be an astronaut, get started.

NASA is already busy building zero-g exoskeletons.
