Meet ‘The Popinator,’ the Robot That Feeds You Popcorn
It’s just a robot that fires food at your mouth. What could possibly go wrong? Say the word “pop,” and the Popinator will track your voice and fire one piece of popcorn at your mouth. Does nobody else see how this has the potential to take a turn for the much, much worse?
Telling a robot to shoot stuff at your face seems like asking for trouble. Not to sound like a Luddite, but what if somebody fills it with rocks? Why would somebody do that? We counter that question with another question –why would somebody build a robot that shoots stuff at your face? Because they can.
