You have 12 months to comply

If you’re waiting for the singularity, you may want a way to tick off the days until the ultimate destiny of the technohuman, or the imminent destruction of the world by AI killing machines, depending on your point of view.

If you’re more persuaded by the second scenario, wouldn’t it be great to have a calendar illustrated with prototypes of our future robot masters?

Of course it would, and QinetiQ North America have obliged with a 2009 calendar showcasing the best of their hi-tech combat robots.

Yes, that is a picture of the TALON combat unit wearing a Santa hat, standing next to a reindeer.

Wired have some of the best pages from the calendar, and the other months are equally as amusing.

Laugh while you can!
