What in the world? Robots can now reproduce!

What in the Terminator?! Robots can now reproduce!

Uhh, how, what, when, how? So many questions...

There are many things in this world that leave us wide-mouthed and confused, but this has got to be one of the most interesting yet weird things we have heard about. It literally has us feeling like we are living in a sci-fi movie...

With the immense research and projects that scientists are embarking on, it was bound to happen at some point. Perhaps all the robot movies have just been preparing us for this all along...

"The US scientists who created the first living robots say the life forms, known as xenobots, can now reproduce -- and in a way not seen in plants and animals." (CNN)

The cells were formed from the stem cells of the African claw frog and like proud parents, scientists noticed movement from them when experiments were done in 2020. "The experiments showed that they could move, work together in groups and self-heal." (CNN)

Can you even imagine that, a super human ideology that has been birthed and nurtured just like a little baby. There is some sort of grey area when it comes to fully understanding the evolution of robots. 

"The xenobots are very early technology -- think of a 1940s computer -- and don't yet have any practical applications. However, this combination of molecular biology and artificial intelligence could potentially be used in a host of tasks in the body and the environment, according to the researchers. This may include things like collecting microplastics in the oceans, inspecting root systems and regenerative medicine." (CNN)

So, basically, there is no need to panic about them wanting to take over the world and mix things up with humans in the bedroom. Sorry not sorry for that... just being honest!

The fact that their existence to help mankind and our environment says a lot about the advancement of research efforts. In addition, it comes with lots of interest and intrigue because many people have been brainwashed when it comes to the ideology of robots and what they look like and mean for society.
