jibo – The Creepy Family Robot

>RELATED POSTS

jibo – your personal electronic stalker (image source)

Launched with great fanfare from mainstream media and virtually no questioning voices, such is the fear generated in media circles by science Naziism, Jibo is billed as “the world’s first family robot”.

A cheesy, overly sentimental video selling this machine explains exactly how it will spy on your entire family and report your activities to the manufacturers, national security agencies, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and anyone willing to shell out some money to invade your privacy (all for your own safety and protection of course) And it is extremely creepy.

In the dystopian society described in George Orwel’s 1984 the creepy and brutally oppressive Big Brother regime used telescreens to keep its subjects under constant surveillance, and weed out those guilty of ‘Thought Crime’, thus eliminating (they hoped) the chance of secret conspiracies against it.

Almost 70 years after the release of the novel, telescreens are a reality and the evil Nazis of the Scientific dictatorship are going much further than Orwell’s telescreens.

Before we look at how evil their plans are, first take a look at the cheesy, sentimental, absurdly infantile video selling this product.
Many reporters at the launch asked if it was some kind of spoof or parody.

Jibo: The World’s First Family Robot

Sadly it is 100 per cent real and the product is about to ship worldwide. But that video is a psy – op designed to deflect attention from the immense potential of this machine.

If you are an independent minded, mature human being raised in an ostensibly free society, watching this piece of shit video ought to make you angry at the brainwashing techniques being used.

The sentimental, “life is so wonderful” music; The way the fake happy – family (teleported from The Truman Show/) talks to the robot as if addressing a human child; The message is, “This is what you need to complete your family. All the while, Jibo is being the family snitch, gathering data about everybody and sending it God knows where.

Pay particular attention to the way the robot interacts with family members, it is half dependent child, half prison guard. And totally creepy.

No doubt the sad, useless fucks who think they need a machine to turn a room light on for them, remember a telephone number or look up what’s on TV and report every action to the nastiest corporate and government organisations will be mad for such gadgets. They’re welcome, but I suggest when they take delivery of their electric nanny robot they have ‘Loser’ tattooed on their forehead so we don’t make the mistake of thinking they are like us.

A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality that is contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it is going to get.

What Have We Told You About Mad Scientists And The God Complex

DARPA Trying to Create New Life, Attempt Immortality.

Those people of accuse me of being “anti-science” need to read this. I am not anti – science (science means knowledge so it is not possible to be anti – science. What I am anti is lunacy, giving psychopaths power and wasting taxpayers money – and if that means some twat kills himself because what I write makes him realise he will never walk on Mars or explore distant galaxies, well so what? The world needs less arseholes.)

Yes sci-fi writers hard up for new material should spend an hour or so perusing the Defense Department?s 2015 budget proposal, especially the section covering the far-out research projects underway at DARPA, where the agency?s mad scientists are working to develop brain-controlled drones, biowarfare, engineer new life forms, and possibly attempt immortality.

If last year was the year of battlefield robots, cyborg soldiers, and weaponized drones, it looks like the next couple years will see the Pentagon gearing up for a deep dive into biotech. DARPA announced today it now has an unit devoted to studying the intersection of biology and engineering, the Biological Technologies Office. The agency is betting that the next generation of defense tech will be take a cue from natural life, and as such one of the major focuses of the new unit will be on synthetic biology. It?ll ramp up research into manufacturing biomaterials, turning living cells, proteins, and DNA into a sort of genetic factory.

All welcome
About the Stop Killer Robots Campaign:

Over the past decade, the expanded use of unmanned armed vehicles has dramatically changed warfare, bringing new humanitarian and legal challenges. Now rapid advances in technology are resulting in efforts to develop fully autonomous weapons. These robotic weapons would be able to choose and fire on targets on their own, without any human intervention, raising numerous ethical, legal, moral, policy, technical, and other concerns with fully autonomous weapons. Giving machines the power to decide who lives and dies on the battlefield is an unacceptable application of technology. The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots is an international coalition of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working to ban fully autonomous weapons.

Organised by Afri in association with the International Peace Studies Programme, Irish School of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin

Beware The Internet Of Things

A couple of weeks ago I reported on Google’s acquisition of technology / real-life integration wankers Nest who sll themselves on the idea that they are soon going to be able to build washing machines and fridges that can talk to you, think for you, boss you around and … make you feel like a robot. The Internet Of Things they call it

Now The Guardian no less has caught up with me, having got rid, it seems of that wanker of wankers Ben Goldacre who though that saying “science” enough times would get him back to Kansas make him clever,(wonder if ben still Googles himself every ten minutes to see what people are saying about him) the G seems to be embracing humanity again as the article demonstrates The Internet Of Things.

I particularly like the opening blurb:

“By 2020, more than 30bn fridges, cars and coffee machines will be connected, all synergising and secretly preparing for the day when they will join as one and murder you.”

But as I get told off for taking the piss out of the poor, sad farties who would be happier if their brains were removed and replaced with a computer, here’s something that’s right up your street.

Robot Fuck Buddy

Making Babies With Robot Lovers

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Scientists are insane deviants who loathe and despise their own human qualities. They should all be put down now because it is the only humane thing to do.

You may think that is a tad extreme but I promise you will agree once you have read this item from Activist Post.

Extract:

Robots to Breed with Each Other and Humans by 2045
Cybernetics experts say it’s possible for robots to breed with each other, and with humans, by 2045.
Nicholas West – Activist Post

The magical transhumanist date of 2045 holds many predictions for how man will attain his final merger with computer systems and usher in an age of “spiritual” machines. Ray Kurzweil has issued a bevy of likely scenarios in his book The Singularity is Near, and continues to suggest that much of those predictions could arrive much sooner. Others have pointed strictly to the economic impact and have marked 2045 has the date when humans could be completely outsourced to robotic workers.

Now cybernetic experts are pointing to the trends in robotics, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing to suggest that the “merger” could go beyond the establishment of an era of cyborgs and into a very literal one: sex with robots.

There has been an ongoing move to create humanoid robots that can more than simply mimic human ability and behavior. Attention is being paid to the social aspect as well. But what is now being proposed has even more serious ethical and existential implications, and very well could bring about the concept of a true “master race.” (As I say at least once a week, Science was ever fascism’s whore.)

Now OK, I take the piss out of the kind of malodorous, pointy headed, acne pebbledashed nerds guys who fantasise about having a robot fuck buddy, but making babies with robots, with her for example

sex robot
Don’t fancy yours – a sex robot

is a fantasy too far. Even if someone is only thinking about such things should be grounds for having them banged up in a high security hospital without trees and flowers and chirping birds etc. but with bars on wibndows, electric fences and hairy arsed BASTARDS with AK47s patrolling the perimeter.

Here’s another little snippet from the article that demonstrates (emphasis on the demon) how insance and utterly detached from reality these cupid stunts are. “George Zarkadakis is an artificial intelligence engineer who believes that robots will move toward procreation rather quickly as they will wish to produce superior offspring.”

Fuck me, the poor, sad, dysfunctional bastard really believe machines will have feelings and instincts.

Fear not however, the idea of living, breathing robots with properly functioning wedding tackle by the year 2045 or even 2525 is so ludicrously far fetched, there is more chance of men walking on the surface of the sun than this ever happening.

The fact that people (?) are even thinking about it (and you should see the whooping and hollering such notions are greeted with in science and technology blogs – like a religious revivalist meeting down in Alabama in the 1930s) is grounds for removing them permanently from human society.

Humans To The back Of The Bus, The Day Of The Cyborg Is Here

We have reported Google’s plans to implant microprocessors in your head to interface directly with your brain and override everything that makes you human, we have expose neuroscience for the scam it is; a science whore’s con trick to get research grants, did you know for example that neuroscientists using the latest technology have detected meaningful brain activity in dead fishes.

And we have even warned you of scientists plans to replace your other half with a robot fuck buddy.

Scientists say they are on course to free humanity from the constraints of being human. it seems to us as if we are being driven on a runaway train towards slavery in a scientific dictatorship. Almost every day we hear of massive continued investment in replacing humans with robots, both economically and socially.

In parallel we see science making advances in dehumanising us and robbing people of their individuality in global projects like The Emperor Obama’s BRAIN initiative in the U.S. and its counterpart in Europe, the Human Brain Project. These projects will attempt to decode the human brain and tailor it for “treatments,” (a.k.a programming) as well as to enable the realization of full brain-computer-interface technology.

The pace of these developments has increased toward the dizzying, such as a “living” transistor that uses DNA merged with graphene, the advent of quantum computing, the creation of avatars, DNA nanobots, and a range of neuro applications that are beginning to transform our fundamental relationship with the “real” world.’

Now most of this is just scientists, being insane and totally detached from reality as usual, having what passes in the scientific mind for a wank. Ninety – nine out of ten things scientists tell us are “just around the corner” or “about to become reality” are really nothing more substantial than fantasies resulting from scientists inability to distinguish fact from fiction. They think Doctor Who is a travel documentary.

The dangerous thing of course is that these plans to make us all into human – android hybrids are being taken seriously (Transhumanism)by politicians and corporate bosses. Makes one realise what a terrible mistake it was to close the mental hospitals. We used to keep these sociopaths banged up for the safety of themselves and others, now we give them research grants and tell them to find ways of destroying humanity.

Scientists Debate Robot’s Rights

We’ve been telling you for ever that scientists are insane, totally detached from reality and hellbent on destroying humanity and the planet that supports us simply because we will not give them all the money in the world to buy new toys.

Just before we get into the latest scientific madness, ask yourself what kind of people we are dealing with that would insist on making machines look vaguely humanoid in order to enable socially incompetent science heads to more easily form relationships with them. Why do robots have to look human? Why do they have to have little legs so they can walk like spazzas? Caterpillar Tracks would work much better?

I’ll tell you why; because the semi autistic nerds who design then theik they are building a friend, someone whose thoughts are driven by pure logic, like those of nerds. We should not be giving these people more toys, we should be putting them out of their misery. It’s the only humane thing to do.

The latest idiocy the coneheads are concerning themselves with is Robot’s Rights. Yes they are having a hugely expensive (and paid for by you and me of course) jolly to discuss justice for junk heaps. And naturally they are using humanoid robots and cuddly toys to encourage people to get sentimental over inanimate objects. You see the science heads are desperately concerned that their little android buddies should have equality with humans …

is it ok to murder a robot
Is it OK to torture or murder a robot

Firstly ask yourselves what kind of fuckwits would be talking about rights for robots when human rights are still something the majority of humans frequently struggle for. We are not talking about the rights of bearded queens in bridal gowns to go mincing up the aisle of the local church here, or the right of dark skinned people to vote more than once in elections. We are talking about the right to live, free speech, a fair trial etc. And where wil it end? It can only be a matter of time before we are hearing about black robots, gay and lesbian robots, single parent robots, amputee robots and robots suffering from PTSD after witnessing an accident involving a van carrying computers.

Are rights for intimate objects necessary? Could you eventually face punishment for trashing your programmable toaster? Could you be accused of racism for calling your smart phone a piece of Chinese shit? Could you be banded a sexist pig for kicking your robot fuck buddy when she tells you she is not in the mood.

And of course there is the ethical question. If robots are not our property to command and do with as we wish, if they have human rights, then slavery is surely the most gross violation of human rights. And if robots cannot be our slaves and have the right to say, “Sorry, not tonight darling, I’m having my oil change”, who will want one.

This plan, which has come up before and been laughed out of court, is the latest attempt of the fuckwits to convince sane people that machines can be intelligent in the way humans are. This is of course a step along the road to making humans dumb as machines are.

The majority of people in the world are wrong about most things, but you have to admit, sciencetits are consistently wronger than most people about most things. Human rights are for people (unless of course they are unfortunate enough to live under one of the evil tyrants the political leaders of the FUKUS axis is not pissed off with) Robots are machines.

By all means look after them carefully, they can be useful and do cost money. But giving them rights FFS?

Police Arrest Ohio Man For Killing Police Robot

According to the Chillicothe Gazette, a Ohio newspapenr, a 62-year-old man, Michael Blevins, was arrested recently for shooting (but not killing) a police robot following a six-hour stand-off.

The report said that officers in the town of Waverly initially responded to a complaint that shots had been fired inside a bedroom at a home, and that the homeowner had a number of guns and was threatening neighbors.

Police knocked on the front door of the home, called on the telephone and even brought in a trained negotiator in an effort to make contact with Blevins, who was heavily inebriated at the time. He refused (or was unable) to speak to anyone for hours. Faced with a stand off and not knowing whether Blevins was standing or had passed out, officers decided to contact the Pike County Sheriff’s Department as well as the state Highway Patrol’s Fast Action Response Team for help. They got a pair of search robots instead.

The first robot to enter the Blevins’ home was camera-equipped. Its mission was to locate the man and his guns. A second, larger robot was then sent inside to ‘have a word.’ When Blevins spotted the machine, he allegedly said, Ceethreepeeo my old buddy, I haven’t seen you for a long time, you’re my bess fren, you’n’me were always bess frens Ceethreepeeo, I love you, ish meanyou gainst zhe wurrrrrl, gorr any booze? When the robot advised him to come along quietly he opened fire on it with a small caliber pistol, damaging its semiconductors.

After all that, police finally entered his home, smacked him on the jaw and arrested him.

The Ultimate Hand Job?

Robotics engineeers at an international robotics and technology show recently exhibited latest advances aimed at allowing disabled people to have the same opportunities the able bodied.

The result of projects in development will, doctors and engineers think, result in an (unimaginatively dubbed but they are scientists) i-limb ultra prosthetic hand connected to sensors in the body, allowing the mechanical hand to move as a biological one would. Movement in these prosthetic limbs would then be possible by thought alone. This allows the disabled person to have almost the same physical abilities as anyone else.

Work on such innovations is now well enough advanced for some people with limited mobility in one hand to have chosen to have their disabled limb amputated and replaced with a prototype i-limb ultra hand instead. Will this happen more in the future? Indeed, will people without disabilities start to get false limbs because they find their real ones are not good enough or bionic ones earn more brownie points with the fashion set? Gok Wan is just never going to allow women to walk around on home made legs.

Maybe false limbs will become a fashion trend. Eat you heart out Heather Mills, Victoria Beckham’s false legs will make you look a klutz. Grace Jones has already ordered her bionic arse and several supermodels have ordered i-Hands with a small finger that converts to a hyperdermic syringe.

We forsee problems if the makers do not come up with a better name. Apple Corp. are never going to let them get away with i-Hand. Unless of course a secret deal has already been arranged giving the computer company exclusive rights to sell an i – Wank app.

In the future your f*** – buddy will be a Robot.

The Sydney Morning Herald ran a report last week which claims that in the not too distant future not only will sex robots eliminate real women in the sex industry but buying a robot fuck – buddy will also be a good way for nerds to find love.

Although the idea of animatronic prostitutes has been around since The Stepford Wives first screened the technology to create a simulated human for purposes of sexual gratification and companionship is stepping up as scientists get more fanatical in their efforts to completely dehumanise us.

The author of the sex robot article posits the benefits of such a creation, namely providing guilt-free sexual encounters and preventing diseases like herpes all the way up to HIV. That’s as may be but what is life without risk. And what red blooded man would want to boff a dead eyed, unthinking automation. The nature of the people who are enthusdiastic about sex robots becomes obvious when you consider there is never any talk of shagdroids that ladies can avail themselves of.

sex robotDon’t fancy yours – a sex robot

This particular field of human endeavour is the preserve of pointy eared tech heads with personal hygiene issues and dysfunctional personalities.

The editorial piece in the Sydney Morning Herald takes the theme one step further and makes the claim that a sex robot will one day ensure everyone will find the perfect mate.

What’s the basis for this idea?

According to SMH, “Many of our social interactions have been reduced to the barebones transfer of information via various online media: text messages, emails, shared videos and pictures, status updates, and, (no kidding) , pokes.”

Many people in advanced societies are already finding their social lives degraded social because conversation is being relegated short, impersonal exchanges in the void of cyberspace. If this trend continues future generation will all be nerds spending their lives in isolation, hunched over a computer.

In such a situation the needs of people who have little interest in more meaningful, stimulating and old-fashioned personal relationships will be answered perfectly by androids designed and programmed to be constantly ready for sex yet totally passive at other times.

That makes it a scary future but Boggart Blog has a better solution. We simply have to gather all the nerds together and KILL THEM.
