The Singularity is coming soon! Artificial intelligences will reinvent everything, and there will be unlimited rice pudding. Except, of course, that when we imagine artificial intelligences in fiction, they’re often not that smart. Case in point? These 10 ridiculously dumb artificial intelligences.
Two of film’s greatest robotic leading men have finally been mashed up into this wonderful prototype figure that Neca teased on its Twitter feed last night. But supposedly it’s not just the company’s designers messing around, Neca might actually produce the figure in 2016.
RoboCop’s primary responsibility is to protect and serve—and do a lot of killing bad guys during the aforementioned protecting/serving. This little RoboCop toy? His primary responsibility is looking like the most adorable little cyborg law enforcement officer he could possibly be.
