Time will be saved for other (hopefully higher, but more likely quotidian and pedestrian) pursuits, as is the history of most labor-saving technologies from the combine to the telephone. Many lives will be saved and injuries averted. We need only adapt our laws, liability and insurance statutes, and - most importantly - our willingness to trust our lives entirely to the wisdom of computers and the sensors they rely upon to see their environment.

It's going to be an interesting journey, good luck!

The universal basic income (UBI) is a fascinating marriage of capitalism and socialism.

Does the imagery here remind anyone of the protests in Kiev, Ukraine over the last 3-4 months? I've listened to this video many times over the years and yet the scenery seems quite Eastern European.

Seaworld aims to capture the imagination of children, and hence their parents' pocketbooks. Guess this video may change a few minds, and save a few dollars for other forms of education/entertainment that don't involve cruelty.

Yikes! I hope those two folks will be okay. High-rise fires are no joke: evacuating people quickly is very difficult, smoke everywhere above the fire, limited water pressure, etc.

It's a train on top of a train. A meta-train!

The gun industry is inherently conservative when it comes to mechanical engineering - the 1911 is still used with only slight modifications and the Glock system has only had evolutionary, incremental improvements since 1982. Putting advanced electronics that authenticate fingerprints, pulse, DNA(?) etc. is a whole new level of complexity that few gun consumers would be willing to risk in the real world.

If an elderly nun and two of her friends can break through four fences and approach a modern facility holding highly enriched uranium, then there's no hope for the security there. It's almost as if the sentence reflects the government's embarrassment that a contractor had such bang-up security. Honestly, these folks did the D.O.E. and the U.S. federal government a HUGE favor by pointing out glaring security holes. Holes, that, if exploited by a terrorist or militant group, could have lead to a real serious incident.

I'm not arguing for clemency for these folks - they did costly damage to a vital piece of nuclear security infrastructure.

Perhaps the responsibility for uranium storage should be placed in the hands of the military, not civilian agencies like the D.O.E. and government contractors that can't do the job they've been paid to do?

for all we know the guards saw they were  elderly, informed their boss and looked at the threat level and were probably told not to take action themselves. from a policy stand point even though they are trespassing, that could have been one hell of a lawsuit if one or more of those guards used excessive force. and im with you it should be under military control, you know if it is really a weapons plant and not some secret shit.

North Korean state media, I'm always impressed by your ability to make even the most mundane (and visually bleak) of situations feel urgent and exciting.

Want to indulge your sense of paranoia/impending doom? Purchase your very own Cold War-era bunker that once served as a telecommunications hub!

Hope they find them soon. All the more reason to have the utmost respect for the wide open land of the American West and the weather.
