When this robot – Motobot ­– stops driving, you feel like it could climb off the bike and hunt you down as well – but it can’t, yet.

Why? Because they can?

Yep - because they can. and they’re experimenting with high-speed control systems. Who knows how this will pay out for improved AI in cars? Not that I’m a huge fan of such systems, but that’s the future.

Accidentally ran across it while reading the news on the BBC site and thought it was interesting.
