Mmm: Robot-made food at a table set by a robot and brought to you steaming hot by a slithering octobot

Some news on the Robot Overlords front from local researchers: Dexai Robotics of Somerville has raised $5.5 million for its robotic sous-chef replacement, called Alfred.

MIT scientists are working on robots that can be trained at home tasks, such as setting tables, simply by watching you.

And Harvard researchers have built a tentaclebot - complete with suction cups - that works like an octopus tentacle to grab and manipulate things.

"Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you."
