Traffic Ladies of the DPRK
When Robots start to act like humans it’s scary, but when humans start to act like robots it’s sad. Well, funny too, if the reason why is cool. I’m not sure if that’s the case with the these Pyongyang Traffic Ladies of the DPRK.
But using humans because they are cheaper than running an electricity grid for traffic lights is sad on many levels. As is how they are drilled and programmed like human robots.
Sure, it’s funny too, but a society like that is very dystopian.
Have a look at a job and a society you should not wish for. Then have a laugh.
And a second one. In this video the Traffic Robot gets mad at a Mini.
