  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • our robot future is coming...

  • made in China!

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored.

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • Robots.

  • Humans have been obsessed with them...

  • well, forever.

  • The ancient Greek god Hephaestus built automatons.

  • And in China,

  • King Mu in the 10th century BC

  • met anartificerwho gifted him a life-size

  • mechanical man that could sing,

  • dance, and apparently flirt.

  • Both true stories.

  • And two thousand years later,

  • China is back at it again.

  • According to this report submitted to the US-China

  • Economic and Security Review Commission,

  • China has been rapidly developing its robotics

  • for both commercial and military use.

  • So China has rolled out with some

  • pretty impressive robots.

  • Like these ones,

  • which hold the Guinness Book of World records

  • for the most robots dancing simultaneously.

  • If that looks scary to you,

  • you ain't seen nothing yet.

  • Here are 5 scary Chinese robots of the future.

  • Number 5

  • Chinese RoboCop

  • For those of you who aren't regular watchers

  • of China Uncensored,

  • Robert Cop is my favorite

  • Chinese knockoff toy.

  • The Furniture of Law enforcement.

  • And E-Patrol Robot Sheriff is the real-life

  • Chinese knockoff of RoboCop

  • at least in terms of being a cop.

  • It's in use at a train station in Zhengzhou city.

  • It looks more like a cross between HAL and a Dalek.

  • It can use facial recognition technology

  • to somehow identifypotential criminals or suspicious people.”

  • It also loves children.

  • Until it crushes their puny bodies.

  • I think I'll be avoiding that train station.

  • Number 4

  • Tell me your secrets.

  • I'll tell you mine.

  • This is Aelos.

  • It can dance, recognize different languages,

  • tell you about the weather, news and traffic,

  • or even listen to your secrets.

  • Owner, you can tell me all of your secrets.

  • I won't tell anybody.”

  • I hope the Chinese government

  • isn't good at hacking!

  • And of course,

  • it knows how to fight.

  • Why are we fighting each other?

  • We should fight the humans!

  • Agreed!

  • After we play soccer.

  • Number 3

  • Fire-shooting drone

  • Nothing sayssafetylike eight spinning blades

  • and a flame thrower.

  • It's actually designed to help utility workers

  • clean trash off of power lines.

  • Somehow, without burning

  • the power lines themselves.

  • Trash can cause outages or electrical shorts.

  • So, yeah,

  • this drone is technically for safety.

  • But I can also see it being repurposed

  • from some extremely not-safe purposes,

  • like if they pared it with E-Patrol Robot Sheriff

  • to fight crime.

  • Number 2

  • Nightmare quadruped.

  • Horizon Zero Dawn is a video game

  • set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun

  • by animalistic machines.

  • And I think it's safe to say

  • we know where this story begins.

  • This four-legged robot was debuted at a competition in China

  • to display unmanned robotic designs

  • that can traverse uneven terrain.

  • This makes them useful for counter terrorism operations,

  • like bomb disposal and reconnaissance.

  • But, I guess if you saw one of these coming,

  • you'd know something was up.

  • And finally, Number 1

  • The Uncanny Valley

  • Can man make machine in his image?

  • The upcoming movie, Ghost in the Shell

  • explores the boundaries between man and machine

  • with this poorly designed Japanese robot.

  • I mean, she doesn't look Japanese at all!

  • But in the present day,

  • meet what's being called the most human-like robot.

  • And it's still totally creepy.

  • And not just because its creator

  • has programed it to call himMy lord.”

  • Don't come too close to me

  • when you are taking a picture.

  • 'It will make my face look fat.'”

  • Oh good!

  • They build the robot with the same kind of

  • deep-seated insecurities

  • that make humans act irrational.

  • I think I'll take Scarlett Johansson instead.

  • So those are 5 scary Chinese robots.

  • Who knows where the future will lead?

  • Let's just hope that as

  • artificial intelligence develops,

  • they don't learn from us puny humans.

  • We can be kind of horrible sometimes.

  • So which Chinese robot

  • was your favorite?

  • And what's your plan to survive

  • the inevitable robot revolution?

  • Leave your ideas below.

  • Thanks for watching this episode of China Uncensored.

  • Once again, I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.
