Random bits of silliness, probably not worth a post of their own.
Botanicalls provides kits and instructions for building a device that will let your houseplants call you when they need water. They’ve recently expanded the mechanism so the plant can alert you via Twitter instead. On the Internet nobody knows you’re a dogwood.
The nerds over at Something Awful have expanded Asimov’s Laws.
A robot may not act in such a fashion as would make dogs obsolete, because dogs are less expensive than robots, and robots should be reserved for science things.
A robot, specifically a big, wide robot, may not pretend to be a refrigerator and then make a scary noise when a human being opens it.
A robot should not jump in the swimming pool to save a drowning boy, because it will just electrocute everyone and then we are worse off than when we started.
What a Feeling…
