Out of Work Robots

Well, of course. (Hat Tip to Devin) What else would you expect in the midst of a general economic downturn? At least they don't claim unemployment insurance. Though, on the other hand, being, well...robots, presumably it's not the case that they are all that upset about being unemployed.

Despite the gloom in the article, however, I'm pretty confident that this is, at most, a temporary setback. The Japanese, being seemingly culturally obsessed with all things robotic, may have over-invested. But I still reckon we'll be, um, welcoming robots into our lives soon enough.
