New Age "Asiatic" thought ... is establishing itself as the
hegemonic ideology of global capitalism. (Zizek)

Friday, May 4

AND THIS IS HOW THE MESSAGE RAN...

In 1956, John McCarthy coined the term "artificial intelligence" as the topic of the Dartmouth Conference. You've come a long way baby. And notice: how manly!

The phrase "Klaatu barada nikto" originates from the 1951 Cold-War-era science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. The phrase "Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!" was used to stop Gort, the robot in the film, from destroying the Earth. There is no known translation for the phrase, although "Klaatu" is the name of the humanoid alien protagonist in the film.

iRobot® Dirt Dog™ Workshop Robot

iRobot Dirt Dog picks up what you throw down. Command it to clean and it gets to work sweeping under workbenches, cars and other hard-to-reach places. It picks up the nuts, bolts, dirt, and other debris from your shop floor. You've done enough; leave the cleaning to a robot.

R-Gator: Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle

Built on the rugged John Deere M-Gator™ platform and enhanced with proven iRobot and Deere robotic controls, navigation and obstacle avoidance systems, the R-Gator is designed to serve numerous important roles, acting as unmanned scout, "point man," perimeter guard, pack/ammo/supply carrier and more for soldiers, marines and airmen.

Science Fiction Double Feature

Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still, but he told us where we stand. And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear. Claude Raines was the invisible man. Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong. They got caught in a celluloid jam. Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space, and this is how the message ran: Science Fiction, Double Feature... Dr. X will build a creature. See androids fighting Brad and Janet. Ann Francis stars in Forbidden Planet. Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show...
