The world is going to end sooner than we’d like–the only question is how. If homosexuals, weather, or Juggalos don’t get to us first, it’s safe to say that robots are going to be the cause of our demise. Just look at this new robot designed by Disney Research. Using an out-of-the-box Microsoft Kinect, the robot is capable of judging the path of objects thrown its way, catching the object with its hands, and then throwing said object back to its origin.

Today, a juggling ball. Tomorrow, the human skulls of its former oppressors.
