We've posted a number of Lunch Break videosÂ in the past about the latest breakthroughs in intelligent robotsÂ â€” robots that will undoubtedly kill us all some day. SoÂ it's only fair that we alert people to the possibility of a joint parrot-robot apocalypse situation:
As io9's George Dvorsky explains: "The latest experiment in animal/machine integration comes from an electrical and computer engineering student from the University of Florida who has designed and built a mobile robot that's controlled by his pet parrot, Pepper. The parrot has quickly taken to the machine, which it's able to control by manipulating a joystick with its beak."
This is just getting weird.
