Robots

The other day, I was browsing through Boston Big Picture, which is an excellent source for pictures that make you go, “hmmmm!” and they have a series on robots. Now, robots don’t really interest me in and of themselves; in fact, they kind of creep me out. There’s something about them that makes me cringe. But! These robots featured on Boston Big Picture really made me appreciate them. I’ll share my favorites with you here, and you can check out the rest of them on the BBP Robot page. At the very least, can you imagine how much brain-power it takes to make these things? And it’s just a fraction of what Allah has created. Amazing.

    Salaam,

    is it only me who seems to be freaked out of all these robots? :S

    • 😆 No, you’re not alone…they are kind of freaky, especially when you focus on them too long. Then, I start imagining a world run by robots, and humans under control of these emotionless, cold machines. Especially when I see groups of robots, like the musical pic, or the auto plant one…those ones make my imagination run wild!

      I only really got drawn to them for their apparent usefulness. Still, kind of creepy. 😯
