CIROS, The Robot With A Knife

It slices, it dices, it cuts cucumbers for the salad you’ll eat before it kills you.

CIROS is a bit more precise than, say, those noodle-shaving robots. Looks cooler, too. However, I wonder if our inclination for allowing knife-wielding machines into our kitchens will one day come back to haunt us.

I suppose that’s unlikely, but then you have to remember that things can get hacked, or malfunction. It’d be just our luck that everyone brings home a spiffy new salad-making robot, just for some madman to turn around and execute Order 66 or something.

That’s the price you pay, I guess.
