Move over, Westworld. We don’t need a fake HBO world to fear for our lives — physical, sexual or otherwise.
Nick Patterson, a futurist and scientist out of Australia, recently released a report detailing just how dead sex robots can make humans.
Even without the help of boob-shaped automatic rifles, the answer is dead. Very dead.
But not without some help.
“Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices,” Patterson explained.
That means the jilted lover that stabs you in your sleep could feasibly be the JaneBot3000.
Not cool, robots. Not cool.
“Often these robots can be upwards of 200 pounds, and very strong,” Patterson explained, not addressing the fact that a gentleman never asks a robot-lady’s weight.
“Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot. The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots. Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”
Seriously stuff, that.
I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for the LifeTime movies this will inspire.
I call first rights on “Hackers Killed My Cheating Husband.”
Anyway, if nothing else, the news just goes to show you that you should always keep your software up-to-date — and maybe get out of the house once in a while, ya perverts.
