When the Singularity arrives, I want to be uploaded into something like this


Only about twenty feet tall and equipped with lasers.

After all, what’s the point of the Singularity if you can’t become a rampaging spider-robot?

    Too late, we’ve already started construction on the 50-foot-tall Cthulu robot for you.

    Spider-bot, Spider-bot
    Does whatever a spider ought
    Webs of steel, any size
    Zap you with laser eyes
    Look out!
    Here comes the Spider-bot

    How provincial. I’d pick something that flies. Between stars. For one thing, I’d have all the time in the world to get anywhere, and for another, I’d really like to get away from all the twenty-foot spiders crawling all over the place.

    Why stop at 6 or 8 legs? How pedestrian! Don’t settle for anything less than a centi bot with deca wing and mega rocket capacity. Possibly some hyper space too.

    How about going for the shape-shifting nanite swarm? No need to pick just one body plan when you can be all of them.

    I used to read a LOT about BEAM robots back in the day. I’m wondering if BEAM techniques could work with something like this…
