  1. LOL

    I can imagine it now…

    Powered Armor refusing to boot up and BSoDing away, tanks going beserk bcause Chinese hackers have found inroads into their navigational systems and IFF transponders.

    I forsee a new era in robotics. The Bill Gates Era. We must embrace it. (j/k)

  3. I know this question is not relevent to the post, but this is a place visited by lot of experienced professionals.

    I have been working on Microsoft technologies for last 10 years. Is it advisable to move to Java technology as it is imminent because my company is opted for it?

  5. “Today, Microsoft unveiled Robotics Studio, for creating robotic applications. As usual, the toolset creates stuff for the Windows world, so Mac OS and other operating systems be damned.”
    SO what would the robots do when Windows is hacked or infected by a virus? Lol

  7. Didn’t Sony just kill off Aibo (its consumer robot dog) and the whole of the company’s robotics unit a few months ago?

    Predicting the future is hard. Or rather, predicting the *timing* of events in the future will happen is hard. See, there’s no doubt that in the future, advanced robots will be pervasive throughout society. That’s easy. The difficult question is: when? Clearly, Sony placed its bet way too early; I wonder if the MS timing is better, or if it’s still too early?

  9. Too bad the Cylon’s weren’t running Microsoft SDK backend’s, could introduce and process new hardware or trigger a new action slash update and bingo, BSOD. Humanity saved by Microsoft…
