Killer Robots & Funky Music 

There's grim news on the killer robot front. Samsung has announced the release of a fully-armed sentry robot, which is
equipped with two cameras with zooming capabilities one for day time and one for infrared night vision. It has a sophisticated pattern recognition which can detect the difference between humans and trees, and a 5.5mm machine-gun. The robot also has a speaker to warn the intruder to surrender or get a perfect headshot. The robots will go on sale by 2007 for $ 200,000 and will be deployed on the border between North and South Korea.
Be sure to check out the inline video. I, for one, welcome our new sentient robotic overlords. Hail HAL!

A New SynCast? Wha!?

I know it's been months since I've done one of these, but there is indeed a new Deviant SynCast, featuring superb music from:
  • Flavor Flav
  • The Perceptionists
  • Mos Def
  • Venetian Snares
  • and more
Check it out and get your SynCast on.


Catfishing (I swear that's really the name) is a fun little distraction: Figure out the Wikipedia page based on the categories it belongs to. I'm at 62% right now.

Today I'm listening to: me!
