It's unclear at this point if the regular research and looking into the most recent science is the reason or if this information hit everyone at the same time, but the question for us the last couple of weeks has been how close are we to Skynet? Is Arnie himself about to walk through the door? I speak of course about the recent articles claiming self-replicating robots have been produced. Fear the scary self-replicating robots. Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we talk about what they are, what they can do, and what is even considered a robot in this day and age.
