Time Traveling Robots in Space #49 - Gangnam Style


Will Black Ops 2 have some time traveling elements to it?  A robot that can fight fires and dance to Gangnam Style!  And We ask what type of robot would you want to be?



* Analyzing the list of achievements for Black Ops 2 found references to time travel.

* A robot that can dance to "Gangnam Style" could be fighting future fires for the Navy.

* A rock thought to be part of a recent fireball over Northern California turns out to be just another rock.

* This week's Audible.com pick, The Door Into Summer by Robert Heinlein

* And, our picks; a real life, interactive R2D2 unit, a time-lapse video of the space shuttle Endeavor being towed through the streets of Los Angeles and the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
and the movie Argo.

*  Question of the week; If you were a robot, what task would you be (or want to be) designed to do?
