LEGO Car Factory – They Build Themselves Now!

Kamil Kaluski July 12, 2018 All Things Hoon 2 Comments

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is a really hot topic now. Companies are heavily investing in the technology, experts are constantly discussing it. Limits aren’t really known yet. But there are fears, human fears. The fears are those of the unknown – what if the intelligent computers create a robot army that will destroy us? Or what if those robots will just do our chores for us? But what if those robots start making other, bigger and better robots? Last time I checked my dish washer was pretty damn dumb. 

Legos, for decades have allowed children to create their own world, limited only by their imagination and supply of bricks. Legos aren’t that smart. Lego Technic is smarter but no one would call it intelligent. But as this video shows, with some human input Lego cars can now assemble themselves. It is therefore only a matter of time before we are ruled by Legos. I, for one, welcome our new Lego robot overlords.

    My former employer is heavily involved in home automation, home alarms, automotive, aerospace/space/defense, and industrial automation/controls. They opened a new software center to attempt to integrate all these using one common cloud based software architecture. I’m convinced they were trying to develop Sky Net.
