This weeks Illustration Friday topic is "Wired".

On a related note: "In the future there will be robots," as they say in GTA. Right now an ethical code which prevents humans from abusing robots and vice versa is being drawn up in South Korea and is due to be released later this year. It's being drawn up by a team which includes a handful of futurists and a science fiction writer. Already it's been forecast that by 2020 every household in South Korea will have a robot and by 2018 robots will routinely carrying out surgery!

I like it, nice color choice and composition too. I wonder if they'll include Asimov's 3 laws?

Thanks for all the comments and welcome to Strange Planet. These are indeed exciting times concerning robotics, but also quite scary. I can't help thinking of cautionary tales such as The Matrix or I Robot!

I have been trying to find out which science fiction author it is they're talking about in these press reports, but to no avail. Does anyone know?

Also, if people want to see more of the little robot in my picture check out "Death Metal" in the sidebar under "My Animation".

Going to be putting more illustrations up over the course of the week so please keep checking back from time to time.

Once again, many thanks for stopping by.

Ps. Carga, I'm hoping to put some images up from Grimmwood quite soon. Glad you like it.
