A new £300 million ($445 million) hospital is set to open up soon in Stirlingshire, Scotland. Why would you care about that? Maybe because laser-guided robots will play a fundamental role in the facility's daily running, including the disposal of waste
, delivery of meals, cleaning of operating theaters, and (gulp!
) drug dispensation. We're told they'll have their own underground
corridors and dedicated lifts, with humanoid employees able to call them up via a PDA. It's believed that using robots to perform the dirty work will be more sanitary than current methods, but we have to question the sanity
of anyone who believes this isn't the first step toward the robot rebellion. Well, it's been nice knowing you guys.
