You have to (have to) agree to the notion that one day, robots will wash our feet, massage our backs and whip us back into shape if we don’t bring them Penzoil Margaritas when they darn well want’em. While our inevitable slavery is only a matter of time, we can spend the peaceful interlude creating effigies to our future warlords.
Gordon Bennett gets it. He builds 14 to 25 inch tall robot sculptures from “recycled” objects that are priced anywhere between $650 and $2,700. They look very retro, and very cool. And he knows that by doing this, he’s buying himself some serious preferential treatment with our future, (artificially) intelligent masters.
