So this documentary focus is more on robots in emergency use. But it shows how fast things are progressing. Including a robots thats 22k to buy an can be programed by showing it how to do the task. Thats tword the end of the video. Its bit long for a youtube video but its well worth looking at how far an fast robots have progressed.

Just like with computers as one thing leads to another. Tech gets smaller an fast, so to does the design an refine aspect of drones an robots.Just think this was 2011 an it was 16k or so to own one.

Just think what we will see in 10 years? I think the other vid was right this century is the robot revolution one.

Sorry for edits after post but it would not let me post text with the video!

Again here we have a compilation of robots an drone tec. An once again I for one welcome our new robot overlords!

But seriously when I was in high school an that movie about that killer robot from the future came out people scoffed at the idea of robots. Hunter Killer drones were fiction to some an silly ideas to others.

An yet here we are the possibility gets closer to probability. Good Sci-Fi always throws in possibility an probability. The future tho is always just one second away.

So here we are again attacks on video games as the Hollywood movie industry has a down turn. Now one can argue easy enuff that this was not caused by or backed by Hollywood. Tho the overall trend still holds I will digress to the current controversy.

An now video games are sexist. This is a old dead horse, but beatings must be administered. Problem is facts do not back up the claims. An fact do come from some interesting places...

Well worth watching an its probably not what you think.

Here is the boiled down version with more NSFW words...

With a different slant as well as well game industry is not clean an pure, as well what #Gamersgate is which ties into this new round of attacks. follow this link http://youtu.be/FQeWj95tLZA put it o in the back ground as its not a visual youtube video like the ones above. It goes over whats started this last excrement weather event in the game news industry. Guy makes fun of his own voice so try not to judge the content on how its said but what it said. He also has a summery posted to one side of the video as well.

Years ago the music industry had http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payola an not the gaming news industry has #gamersgate. Safe prediction would be that this will blow up an help to fuel the sexism in video games side. Even tho it looks really bad for who they would defend. One should always remember public figures have feet of clay. Or as As I would put it we just hope thats brown stuff is clay.

Edit : found a good write up of what Gamergate is... http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/gamergate

edit 2 um this is getting bigger an axes are bring ground...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2014/09/20/the-escapist-forums-brought-down-in-ddos-attack/ So the side who says gamergate is noting has people doxxing others as well as ddos attacks on sites that even discuss whats going on. Yeah its not looking good.

Right off lets peek at the trailer for the new NBC show...

Few things of note. The look is pretty spot on. Hey hes blond an a Brit! Now to look at that 2005 movie...

looks was off but Keanu Reeves has the character fairly well pegged. But looked nothing like him. Note the lighter? Yeah NBC says no smoking....

"We’ve known for some time that a cigarette-smoking John Constantine might not be featured in the upcoming Constantine TV show, as producer David S. Goyer previously said it was under negotiation with NBC. Now it seems it’s official – the famously cancer-stricken, chain-smoking Constantine will not be allowed to light up so much as a single cigarette during his self-titled series.

During a recent interview with Collider, Constantine pilot director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) confirmed that the occult detective will be missing what many would consider an essential ingredient of the character – a move largely attributed to network standards and practices. That loud sound you just heard was the force of a thousand sighs from Constantine fans who hoped NBC might faithfully adapt the character.

On the surface, one wouldn’t think the loss of a single personality trait would be enough to derail as well-drawn a character as John Constantine, but it really can’t be overstated just how iconic an aspect ofHellblazer John’s addiction is. There’s a reason that the 2005 Constantine film starring Keanu Reeves made sure to retain the title character’s smoking habit, despite jettisoning many other recognizable aspects of his look and background.

Taking away Constantine’s cigarettes is almost akin to taking away Batman’s orphan origin or Superman’s status as the last son of Krypton. It’s an integral part of who he is, one made obvious by the fact that almost any picture of the character includes a lit cigarette dangling from his lips."

from http://screenrant.com/constantine-tv-show-no-smoking/

Always wondered If NBC has a special unit that just sits an thinks.. how can we screw this up? Code named them S.N.A.F.U.

Any way might check it out. Less enthusiastic to say the least.

Or alternate title "I welcome our new robotic overlords!"

So this is a real thing ..

then I seen this...

So one could drop the robot spiders with drones silently most any where. Fairly quietly to. I mean what could go wrong?

Add this story I seen today.. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2014/07/23/how-a-solar-storm-nearly-destroyed-life-as-we-know-it-two-years-ago/ So the take away is " There is a 12 percent chance of a Carrington-type event on Earth in the next 10 years according to Pete Riley of Predictive Science Inc."

So yes the future is always trying to kill us. If mother nature does not kill ya well maybe robots will. Thus live life an enjoy what you can while you can. These days after all are numbered for a reason.
