Courtesy of Sploid:

Hacker Allen Pan built a pair of custom gloves featuring a butane dispenser, parts from an electric arc lighter, and a motion sensor that automatically trigger a terrifying blast of fire with every detected punch.

New Robot Eats And Digests Living Things – What Could Go Wrong?

terminatorbigIt may not be a living, breathing robot, but UK researchers have created something pretty close. Robotics experts has developed a soft robot capable of consuming organic material for energy, effectively creating a machine which digests living things. The hope is that such self-sustaining robo-scavengers could be used to mop up contaminated water or algal blooms, which choke out life.”

It always starts out this way – ‘algal blooms’ and ‘mop up contaminated water’ but what it soon turns out to be is ‘wiping out humanity in a bid to dominate the planet’. You know it’s true. That’s why it’s incumbent upon everyone to find these things and exterminate them with fire. Because that’s what they’re going to do to you some day.
