Leave it to MIT for a better answer


Oil cleaning robot army
This strange looking contraption is what the oil industry should have been working on for the last twenty years or so. It's a robotic oil skimmer that can work for months by itself cleaning up oil spills. Seems we can spend billions of dollars on drones and robots to kill people why not something for the benefit of man. But silly me I know once the military gets it's hands on this they'll try to figure out how to turn it into a weapon.

I think I mention this once before, that I wouldn't be too sad if my profession was turned over to robots.


Keep your drums upright or let a robot right it for you.

That is amazing. Too late for this one but there will always be another somewhere.

So you have been training in operating such robots? If not you have better start looking for another profession.

I think the new Walmart store they are building here is hiring, any experience at being a greeter?

This robo cleaner is a small part in the scheme of what we should have been doing 40 years ago.

Oh hell, the military app is easy, just spit the collected oil on your swarthy enemy and have a passing drone fertilize that sucker with some fire et voila, good times.

It's too fucking simple.
The instruction manual must be a thousand pages long.
THEN, let the military get their hands on it.
