FoxNews reports that a new land-speed record has been achieved by a “cheetah robot funded by the U.S. military”.

The article includes this ominous passage:

Its top running speed of 18 mph (29 kph) is faster than the average human jogger, but still lags behind top human speeds of nearly 28 mph (45 kph) — perhaps a relief for anyone fearing a world where robots can outrun their human overlords.

But for how long?


One of my favorite bits from the glory days of MadTV.

Today I’m listening to: Moby!
