    OK! Have you picked out your favorite bunker site for the coming robopocalypse? Because we’re officially all doomed.

    The guitar at the end made me LOL. Like actually in real life.

  5. Andy Murdock says:

    These little fly spies also have a license to kill.

    Many times in Science Fiction I’ve seen a swarm of tiny robots go to work on something all moving in coordinated chaos and it’s always given me a weird feeling of unease. Like I was viewing an alien life form even though it’s robotic.

    This is the first time robots in real life have given me that feeling.

    About halfway through I had the distinct impression I was watching a fur-free Muppets segment.

  13. David says:

    I, for one, am now hoping that “swarm of tiny robots” is part of the villain’s scheme in the next Bond movie…

    Hot-damn, it’s great to live in the Future!

    Watching the ones bounce up and down (for the keyboard) looks almost too fluid to be real, like CGI, but I guess that might be the uncanny valley effect in reverse.
