So far the only thing I see saving us from the robot apocalypse is that long power cord out the back end.

Until batteries can store as much energy as fat, I think we can still stop the robots.

So the key is not stopping the development of AI, it's stopping Elon Musk's plan to build better batteries.

Some of their bots have internal combustion engines generating electricity to power them.
