[03:27:28] <takyon> I may just rewrite that whole thing in my own words

[03:32:46] * exec accidentally heaps a shaken bottle of BEER-brand beer on @editorial
[03:32:52] <takyon> ah hell yeh
[03:33:06] <Bytram|away> lol
[03:33:26] <Bytram|away> btw, I know I've seen that medical robot story before, but not sure where; prolly on Ars Technica
[03:33:40] <Bytram|away> from what I recall, it was not much of a 'robot'
[03:34:06] <Bytram|away> more of a springy bit of folded 'material' that had sharp corners
[03:34:33] <Bytram|away> corners would dig in when device was activated by external magnets and thus cause the rest of the device to move.
[03:34:41] <Bytram|away> really clunky, to say the least.
[03:35:22] <Bytram|away> not quite as intersting/exciting as the title would have had me believe.
[03:35:23] <takyon> which medical robot
[03:35:28] <Bytram|away> just my two-cents.

[03:35:48] <systemd> ^ 03SN Submission by takyon: MIT Researchers Develop Ingestible "Origami" Robot
[03:35:57] <Bytram|away> ^^ that one
[03:36:11] <Bytram|away> don't get me wrong, it's not a bad story.
[03:36:23] <Bytram|away> just seemed a little 'hyped' to me, from what Irecall that I read.
[03:36:35] <Bytram|away> okay, gtg
[03:36:37] <takyon> I'd have to look at the definition of robot
[03:36:48] <takyon> inb4 RUR
[03:37:00] <Bytram|away> hrm... RUR?
[03:37:27] * Bytram|away is not familiar with that one
[03:38:27] <Bytram|away> oh, prolly this: http://jerz.setonhill.edu
[03:38:29] <systemd> ^ 03RUR (Rossum?s Universal Robots) | Jerz's Literacy Weblog
[03:38:31] <takyon> it's from the original play that introduced robots
[03:38:34] <takyon> yup
