AKA the "Lull Humanity into a False Sense of Security" event.
This would make a great intro to a teaser for a new Terminator movie - just have it cut midway through to quick cuts of robots killing people.

Not enough beer will do that to you.

This is what u guys are scared of
I'm actually afraid of lawyers that are cats, but not because of their color

Well, I mean, even humans have to practice walking for a year before they're any good.

I joined the robotics club at my university. We hosted an event with various robotics competitions. After watching our robots struggle to do the simplest things, my dad said that he no longer fears the singularity.
I guy I used to know got banned from all of the Massachusetts robotics club competitions for making simple analog robots armed with EMP weapons made from old microwave transformers. His robots would roll out, fire an EMP strong enough to wipe out the firmware in the opponent's robot (and probably some of the robots near the area, too - he claims one of them was powerful enough that it made the digital camera all the way at the back of the hall drop some frames when it went off) and then it would just flail around performing simple, repetitive motions until it either smashed into the other robot or they kicked him out.
Microwave > robot

@Zircon. Awesome! The guy *was* being a dick though. I would have thought emp weapons would be barred as well as lasers, guns, explosives etc.
I say go for it.. so long as it doesn't destroy the robot completely. It's just like in Kickboxer when they dip their hands in poison or whatever, and then the dude throws some powder in his face anyway.. I should watch that movie again. It was all fair. If anything they should just make some sort of failsafe or deterrent for such Kickboxery tactics. I mean, spoiler but JCVD still won that competition because he adapted, via montage flashback.
Well, there are rules about that kind of thing. It would be an instant disqualification. My lab partner and I built a fire fighter. There's a plywood maze and somewhere in the maze is a lit candle. The robot has to find the candle and put it out. some friends of mine told me about somebody once who built a robot that just sat in the starting position and dumped a bunch of fire retardant gas into the maze. It put out the candle without moving and inch. After that, they made it so the robot has to be within 10 cm of the candle before putting it out. But part of the fun is figuring out how to be as creative as possible within the rules.

I love the one that bears down while trying to turn the water valve that it hasn't actually grabbed.
I like the one at :26-:30, it's like it gives up before it even tries to turn that doorknob.
I was getting something at a convenience store and a person did that same motion/fall at the front door. He bounced back up in less than a second, but then just went in to buy beer, and the clerk sold it to him. No fair because I was denied beer once because it was snowy and slippery, and I was sort of stumbling around the store because people were tracking in snow that wasn't being mopped up. No beer for me :(

The one with the rabbit ears made me laugh so hard. The way they just shattered and flew away when it fell was so hilariously tragic because you just know some poor sap on the team argued hard to have those added.
Also, someone named one of these monstrosities "Hector"? Fuck you, asshole.

The music makes this. Perfectly scored.
Not sure if my resubmit has the same music or not.
Pretty sure it isn't. Do you remember what the music on the original was?
didn't recognize it; some piano concerto that was slightly upbeat.

Go home, robot. You're drunk.
