    “And the clock worked well for many years until, one day, there arose a fly named Neo…”

    Does IBM’s Watson know about this? Hope not.

    Couldn’t the conveyor belt’s energy source be used to power the clock, and skip the whole icky dead fly thing?

    I thought I posted about these, plus some more carnivorous furniture, on the Submitterator a while ago. I liked the table…

    So does the clock generate waste? Or is that a manual job for the clock owner?

    I’m going to invent a biochemical machine that is powered by flies. I’m going to call it a “frog”.

    “We want to get robots to turn biomass into electricity.”

    Sure, they START by only eating flies.

    But the endgame is really, really ugly … .

    It’s a slippery slope folks. It’s bad enough I have to worry that robots will kill me Terminator style, but now I have to worry they’ll develop an appetite for my delicious biomass.

    This reminds me of that corpse-eating military robot that very quickly wasn’t, and Damien Hirst’s insect-o-cutor vitrines.
