Our new favorite book

Here's the accompanying website:

This project is obviously right up our alley.

From the introduction:

Children love robots. Everyone seems to love robots. Well, perhaps not everyone would agree. Some people are actually quite afraid of them, or at least afraid of their potential.
I'm one of the afraid.
Are you afraid? - You should be.

Top Ten Harbingers of the Impending Robot Apocalypse

Topless Robot published a list of the ten robots they fear will kill us in the next decade. It includes old favorites like deceptively cute Asimo.

But our pick for number one deathbot is not on the list: Roxxxy, the evil sexbot.
It is truly creepy and bound to be our angel of robodeath.
