Two Ultra Hal Chatbots Talking to Each Other Quickly Devolves Into a Strangely Sexual Conversation

Two Ultra Hal chatbots by Zabaware having a conversation in a 2011 video quickly devolve into a strangely sexual place that’s also obsessed with alcohol consumption. As Zabaware notes, Ultra Hal learns from conversations with other people as well as Twitter–though neither method seems to make for the best teachers.

Zabaware’s Ultra Hal is an artificially intelligent chat bot that learns from past conversations (human-to-bot) as well as from observing Twitter conversations (human-to-human). Watch what happens when one Ultra Hal bot has a conversation with another Ultra Hal bot.

Alfred Points Out to Batman All of the Problems With Having Real Bats Flying Around the Batcave in an Animated Short

In a new animated short by Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly, Alfred Pennyworth points out to Batman all of the nasty problems that come with having real bats flying around in the Batcave.

Most of Batman’s whole persona doesn’t make much sense – being a billionaire who dresses up like a flying rodent is more than a little silly. But hanging out in a gross cave filled with bats all the time? That’s INSANE. You’re a billionaire! You own a mansion! Why are you chilling in a dank cave filled with disease-ridden bats instead of enjoying some champagne in your ultra-fancy house?

tocky alarm clock 2

Tocky by Nanda Home is a musical alarm that rolls, jumps, and runs away to wake its owner up. The motion of the clock forces the user to physically get up and chase the clock rather than simply pressing a snooze button.

Tocky works similarly to Nanda Home’s other moving alarm clock Clocky which features two wheels. The two clocks can be seen in action in a short video produced by Nanda Home that shows the alarms running away, causing their owners to meet.

For a limited time, the Tocky is available in our Laughing Squid Store at a 20% discount in both aqua and red.

American Robot Builders MegaBots Inc. Publicly Challenge Japan to a Giant Robot Duel

MegaBots Inc. founders Gui Cavalcanti and Matt Oehrlein have publicly challenged Japanese robot makers Suidobashi Heavy Industries to a giant robot duel on behalf of America.

MegaBots recently completed construction on their Mark II giant fighting robot, which we’ve previously shown destroying a car with massive paintballs, but Suidobashi Heavy Industries beat them to the punch by finishing their own giant fighting robot called Kuratas.

Cavalcanti and Oehrlein have challenged Suidobashi to pick a venue for the fight for one year from June 30, 2015, which they say will give both teams time to modify their fighters for the challenge. So far there appears to be no response on the Suidobashi YouTube channel.
