Robo-Warriors – Are You Ready To Rumble?!

As a fan of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and CGI I’m always interested in seeing movies that contain one or more of these elements. With the recent release of “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” I was excited to see some great CGI and I’m looking forward to seeing “Real Steel” later this year.

In a moment of “inspirClaytion” I thought I’d convert my blog into a temporary mech-arena and extend a challenge to you, my readers:

The Cupid Files: Technically, It’s Love

Cupid; one cherubic little angel set with a task that at the time seemed impossibly easy. When there are only two people in the World, how hard can it be to stick them both with a little love and watch the beautiful results? Kudos Cupid, job well done.

Fast forward to the 21st century and it is this single guy’s personal opinion that poor Cupid is suffering from chaos induced delirium.

Doomo Arigato, Mr Roboto

I’m not sure if you’ve all been keeping up with the latest news on robotics and artificial intelligence but there seems to be a lot of advancement in the area lately. Or maybe it’s been happening for a long time but all the results are coming out now, like all these research agencies/companies have had an assignment set and now they have to report on it. I’m not following these developments closely, however it does present a great deal of wonderful and terrifying thought provocation. Or maybe that’s just my mind working overtime again.
