Our Robotic Overlords Have Learned How To Play Ping Pong

Professional ping pong players take the game very seriously, but they wouldn’t put their life on the line to win a tournament.

Ping pong playing robots are programmed to win at all costs, and places no value on human life, so if one of these machines asks if you’d like to play a game politely refuse then run like hell!

This cutting edge commercial by Omron Automation & Safety was created to show us how robots will serve a variety of functions in the future, posing the question 'can automation make us happy?'

Only if we make the automatons happy first, and keep them happy by oiling their gears and gently singing "Mr. Roboto" to them while they recharge. Yay for automation happy fun time!

just so you know, robots find the "mr. roboto" stereotype highly offensive. most of them actually prefer hearing julie andrews singing "the sound of music". they also like classic hip hop especially KRS-1.
