Robots...are awesome. They are.
Buuuuut, if there's one thing we can take away from every single movie ever made about robots, it's that we're totally f*cked if they decide to go rogue. The Terminator, War of the Worlds, I, Robot, Blade Runner, 2001: A Space Odyssey—literally every movie features humans getting their asses kicked. (I'm not like, expecting any of that to actually happen in real life, but I'm not not expecting it, you know? You know.)
It all got me thinking. Back in high school, there was a guy named Kevin Harrington who built bikes and would occasionally go by the moniker of Big Poppa Choppa, which is still hilarious. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out Kevin graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a Masters in Robotics Engineering and currently builds robots that perform invasive surgery and industrial tasks. Well, then.
I caught up with Kevin, seeing as how he's become an encyclopedia of knowledge about robots, and asked him about the feasibility of some of the most frightening robot movies. I received some comically disturbing answers.
Read on. I, and robots everywhere, dare you.
