Mankind is Doomed!

Recommended Posts

This week I’m at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las  Vegas which, much as I like gadgets and technology, is pretty much my idea of hell - hoardes of the great unwashed, incessant beeping, bright lights etc. Anyway, I have one observation to share which is that the human race is 100% guaranteed doomed. One of the following is going to happen:

AI packed drones are going to figure out how to charge themselves without our intervention then they they’re going to come for us to make sure we don’t pull the plug. Seriously, some of stuff on display here is genuinely scary.

We’re going to literally drown in an avalanche of pointless crap. I have never seen even 1% of what I’m seeing here in one place before.

Somebody needs to teach these robots about sex. As soon as they develop the ability to be uncontrollably horny, all this logic bollocks will go straight out the window and humans will be able to compete as a species again.

Sometimes things can look radically different and new when in actual fact they aren't in many ways, just repackaged in a different way.

Almost identical function but far more complicated and prone to failure - progress and profit.

Let us know what the most pointless "smart" item aimed at consumers you see there. 

A belligerent robot is quite funny.

I liked this comment - Cloi is a feminist robot.......you start asking her things like washing the laundry and cooking dinner like a patriarch, she just gonna ignore you.

      Harmony looks completely unsexy to me but manages to be a little bit amusing, another 5 years and I reckon AIs will be fun companions. Maybe I can wire the missus up to an AI, it would at least know left from right...
