    I am a little frightened by this. Doesn’t anyone else fear robotic sex toys gone amok?
    Or even just garden variety be-tentacled military bots like in that one bit from the matrix animation or whatever?

    Is it just me or is that floating ball covered in velcro?  Seems like cheating if all you need to do is wave your tentacle around until you hit it.
