Robot cats

I don't know if you've noticed or not, but robots are taking over the world. In 2013 alone, we've seen reports of vomiting robots, Killer Robot Surgeons, Giant German Robot Apes, Giant Mutant Radioactive Robot Snakes, Pizza-Delivering Underwater Robot Killer Whales, and Vampire Robots.

Well, if that's not enough robots running around causing mayhem and chaos, there's now a robot that's ... wait for it ... running around. It's called WildCat, and it's from those wacky kids at Boston Dynamics.

The little gasoline engine is a little odd, but once they figure out how to get it to run on an iPhone or Droid Maxx battery, you best watch out.

  3. Send that thing to Washington DC. It'll fit right in with the giant, mutant, political robots that are running the place.

  5. Considering many liberal havens around here have banned leaf blowers, if they ever saw this thing.....

    (and yes, the liberals have no problem making Juan, the landscaper, work even harder for his $8/hr, let him rake those leaves by hand. It will take him 3 times longer so he'll be making 3 times more money!) Celebrate Diversity!!!!11!!1!!
