The National Museum of Australia has employed robots to help their education programs and hasten mankinds fall to robot overlords. These two chess piece-like robots are known as B1 and B2, and as a part of their fiendish robotic machinations to destroy all of us puny meat-bags they will be allowing school children from regional and remote Australia to virtually visit the museum. Schools will be able to access the robots online and direct their own tours of the museum using the robots 360 degree camera to view the exhibits.

This sounds brilliant, and I can’t wait to see robots doing other jobs soon. Like fighting crime.
