We are so screwed. Researchers at NEC System technologies and Mie University in Japan, have developed a robot that can differentiate tastes. And before anyone naively sputters ‘Isn’t that amazing?’, one of the robots determined that human flesh tastes like bacon.
The robot uprising, which is inevitable, has just taken an unfortunate turn. Our deaths by the hand of the upstart robots, once thought to be quick and precise, will now be slow and savory. Nice going eggheads!
