Robopocalypse at our own "hands"

Now that our Jeopardy playing SKYNET prototype, WATSON, is well along, it's high time we got some decent human looking robots to act as proper killing machines to doom us all.
Virginia Tech scientists have developed robotic hands to allow robots like the one on the left to "grasp things" and "type". "Grasp things" is quite a novel euphemism for "kill us all", but at least they will be able to "type" our obituaries.

Don't say we didn't warn you about the coming robopocalypse...

What? OK.
BRIArN says:
"Actually, we didn't warn you. Until now. When it's too late.
But look on the bright side, when SKYNET activates, at least the killing will be organized."

I don't think he has quite the right perspective on this...
