First they came for the children

Brian the Brain is a wise-cracking interactive AI toy that talks, plays songs, makes calls, answers general knowledge questions, helps the kids with their homework and plays games. In other words, it’s an AI-powered baby sitter.

Billed as the world’s first digital room-mate, it has a slick promotional video that belies its function as propaganda device for the coming robot war.

If you’re still not convinced, this other video of stacks of animated Brian the Brain’s in a toy store should send you running to the bunkers.

Lest we forget: “The machines rose from the ashes of the nuclear fire, their war to exterminate mankind has raged for decades, but the final battle would not be fought in the future. It would be fought here, in our present.”

In the toy shops.

    You are joking about the robots taking over.
    Humans did make the atom bomb, we were lucky it does not cause a chain reaction and consume all the worlds atmosphere.
    Humans have found all the DNA sequences in the human genome.
    We humans truly might make a self replicating intelligent machine that is unstoppable and not under our control.
    Or is that our children?
