image for Machines Take Over
Humour is Difficult for Robots

A Japanese company has introduced vending machines using facial recognition technology to recommend drinks to customers depending on age and gender. Sales have tripled as a result.

A new force in society is developing. A Korean restaurant has done away with waiters and staff and machines have taken over. Based on previous preferences customers have suggested meals prepared. The saving on staff costs means profits can be increased substantially.

World wide developments of machines at railway stations have already been introduced. To get a ticket a machine is all you have purchase a ticket.

Robots can clean your home, wash your clothes and super soft ones can give total sexual satisfaction. You can also be certain that they will not blab to the media about your preferences.

Scientists are working on several mechanised products which will bring changes to our lives. Cars driven by machines are on the horizon and experiments with aircraft may soon provide us with mechanised journeys, including machine pilots and robot cabin helpers.

A snag is the increasing unemployment that economists predict. Also the problem of machines that go wrong and need fixing could be a headache. However special 'fixer machines' are envisaged and people, without work, can be trained to develop new areas of exciting possibilities.

Humour, however, could be an awkward customer. Machines have very little sense of fun and well aimed satire is difficult for robots who never laugh.

Make j.w.'s day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
