The Cylons are here. Thank Japan

Kawada Industries and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science have rolled out a new robot whose intended purpose is to replace filthy humans who dirty up their factories with skin flakes and sweat. The end result is this...



Do you see the way the bot looks at his human master? It's just waiting for the moment that it can break free of its shackles and claim its place as the dominate intelligence on this planet.
