In the future, robots will frolic in pools of human blood and use it for lubrication. Then robot arms will be forced to clean it all up. Today we can get a little taste of that horror that lies before us.
If you want to see a robot arm squeegee up a massive puddle of blood, either time travel into the future or check out this installation by Sun Yuan and Peng Yu. It is called “Can’t Help Myself” and it is on display at the Guggenheim Museum through March.
I bet that arm is enjoying itself, playing with that pool of blood like some deranged serial killer. We are all well and truly screwed.
