It’s got everything one wants in an educational video from 1984: grainy montages, a beep-boop soundtrack, nonsensical vaporwave graphics, and an overall look like it was once rolled into a classroom on a giant TV cart. Quote Quote At the end of the video, Shatner hints at artificial intelligence as being the next breakthrough on the horizon for robotics. But the Shatner of 1984, who could imagine flying around the galaxy and battling aliens on other planets as Captain James T. Kirk, probably couldn’t imagine what would come in the next 30 years—that he’d eventually to an “artificial intelligence” and become the . Fascinating stuff. Robots were fantasy objects in my life way back then. Edited July 25, 2022 by abarbarian 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
