When Tech Attacks: Google's automated death machine

On When Tech Attacks this week, we look at the Aussie invention that will soon fuel man-hating robots, a Google car that gets 10 points every time it runs over a pet, plus our scary robot of the week.

Innovations in technology are exciting to follow, but while soccer-playing robot dogs look cute, they are also the first step towards machine gun-toting, self-aware war machines that are hell bent on the enslavement and destruction of mankind. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Join Joseph Hanlon and Derek Fung as they examine how the new technologies of today are taking over our lives and signposting a darker future. On the show this week, we look at the Aussie invention that will recharge your phone today and fuel man-hating robots tomorrow, as well as Google's automated car that gets 10 points every time it runs over someone's pet. Plus, our scary robot of the week.
