leaps forward

Now here’s progress, <a href=”http://singularityhub.com/2010/11/02/a-robot-in-every-korean-kindergarten-by-2013/”>robots for teaching English in kinda</a>. It was just last Monday that I was fantasising about having a conversation with my university students where I told them that one day in the future they would have a robot teaching them instead of me. Then I imagined the robot: it would be about 8 feet tall, shiny metal and if those students at the back kept talking out of turn, the robot’s hand would morph, Transformers-like, into a fat laser and blast their slack arses into smouldering, vaporised nothing.

Meanwhile, in the future I will be living on Mars with Elon Musk and a select group of other really cool people.
