The World's Best Robots Are Still Hilariously Terrible

Movies like the Terminator series have convinced us that robots are eventually going to kill us all.

Don't get it twisted, that’s still eventually going to happen without a doubt but we’ve got a long way to go before we build a T-1000 or even an Arnold version.  That is because as DARPA’s 2015 Robotics Challenge, (or as I like to call it, the most funny time of the year) shows, even the best and smartest robots right now are still so hilariously dumb that they can’t even walk right.

Walk or not, you put some lasers on them, and we are gonna be in trouble.

The good folks over at Gizmodo took some ridiculous footage of some of the best robot fails from the DARPA event and put a Benny Hill soundtrack over their falls. It’s great! It’s hilarious! But don’t laugh too hard because you know the robots will come back and kill us all in a few decades.  And they are robots, so their memory is infallible.

Remember, before you are crushed under the weight of a metal alloy foot in a few years, that at one time these killer automatons were real stupid.
