Week in Review: 5 robots that'll take our jobs in the future

Human ingenuity certainly knows no bounds. Just take a look at this crazy costume this fella made — it makes it look like he's got a hole punched straight through him. It's that kind of brilliance that'll mean an end to human labor, though. Robots, my friend, they're going to take over. There's a robot to help the elderly take their medicine, robots to replace dogs, and even robots to replace astronauts on the moon. Here at DVICE, we're even encouraging folks to rework our future conquerors into steampunk wonders. Hell, talking heads such as our writers are probably going to be replaced when this Einsteinbot learns how to type.

That's okay with us, though. We'll be too busy drinking coffee out of space cups.
