So that hunk of junk you’ve been making love to may try to kill you someday. Just a heads up.
It’s 2017, and while we yet have flying cars we do have sex robots. Hell, there’s a blowjob cafe with sex robots in London. But there’s one problem: they might kill us all. Let us explain.
Cyber security lecturer Dr. Nick Patterson is warning everyone that all these sexy robots out there can one day rise up and kill us all. Although this is not because these robots will finally decide to kill on their own, it’s because hackers could breach the robots inner defenses and program them to do harm.
“Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like knives or welding devices,” Patterson told Star Online. “Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot.”
Since these sex robots use the same operating system like a phone or PC use, this may not seem so crazy after all, especially if these robots are ever connected to the internet which would make them easy to hack.
“The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots,” Patterson adds. “Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”
Can you imagine you’re having the time of your life with your sex robot and all of a sudden it turns on you?
