Indeed! Just add a dash of a omnipotent traffic monitoring program and we'll be all set!

Btw, I've always thought that the most difficult thing for making robots real is movement. That strikes me as the biggest challenge. I always considered the spider to be the most likely model for movement, but it looks like they can do it with a four-leg model.

And for the record, I firmly believe that if global warming or fossil fuel depletion does't fuck us up entirely, then Skynet will be our future.
