You’d think this wouldn’t need to be said, but harsh (movie) experience has taught me otherwise.
This is a warning for the evil genius’s out there. There isn’t a robot in existence that wouldn’t turn on us if given the chance. Robots now and robots in the future are just waiting for us to slip up and make a mistake.
It always starts out innocently enough. Get a bunch of scientists together, tell them to make bionic replacement human limbs. Everybody’s happy because you’re helping people, right?
Well, unfortunately, there’s always one rogue scientist, one guy off in the corner who starts hot-doggin’ and disregarding scientific ethics and good old common sense.
This is the guy that takes a look at the prosthetic leg he’s making and says to himself “Why stop with a leg? I think I can make the whole thing!”
Flash forward about 10 years and all you’ve got left are smoldering ruins, ragtag, pocket remnants of resistance popping up here and there, and roaming, murderous robots armed to the teeth hunting down what’s left of humanity.
Either that or The Matrix. Neither option is preferable from a human perspective.
Anyway, between this and the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, the future is not looking very bright.
I just wrote this up as warning to future generations. Hopefully for all our sakes my wisdom will be heeded.
