Robo-leg heralds arrival of Robolympics, end of mankind

Once again the world of man is threatened by a robot menace. Did we not learn from Terminator and The Matrix that down this road waits crushing oppression under an unyielding steel grip? Or a lightweight aluminum one? While at the moment this leg appears to be shaky, small, and less than deadly, it’s only a matter of time before it joins with its brethren to start their own league (as foretold on the NES) and then their own political party.

Unfortunately, as tech journalists, we’ll be forced to cover our own species’ demise at the hands of the machines, post by post. When they come for our soft flesh, we’ll liveblog it.
