Robots talk to each other

Yes, science is awesome, but sometimes, it's a little shortsighted. Apparently, nobody at the University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology has seen a Terminator movie, because if they did, they may have thought twice about making robots capable of creating their own language and speaking to one another.

Not a big deal?

Think back at high school when the Brazilian exchange students were tittering in the back of class, pointing at you and whispering in Portuguese and you hadn't a clue what they were talking about, because even your Spanish chupa'd.

Now imagine that same feeling of dread and uncertainty, then multiply it by a factor of any number that you can count to, because the two hot Brazilian chicks? They are now titanium-plated roving dreadnoughts and armed to the eyeballs with rockets and can smell your fear.

Shown: The appropriate response.

Seriously, this is a great day for science, and one step closer to truly understanding the human condition through machines.

Or is it?

What's the worst that can happen?
