Obama: Keeping the Titanium-Fisted Reign of Robot Overlords At Bay

BY Nick Judd | Friday, June 24 2011

Via Politico, President Barack Obama visits Carnegie Mellon University and decrees that its robotics lab is in no danger of heralding in the alloy bootheels of automaton rule:

I just met with folks from some cutting edge companies and saw some of their inventions here in your national robotics engineering center. But that's not the only reason I'm here. You might not know this, but one of my responsibilities as commander-in-chief is to keep an eye on robots. And I'm pleased to report that the robots you manufacture here seem peaceful ... at least for now.

Happy Friday.
