South Korea wants to make robots too.

Really, they don’t want to be left behind by their neighbor Japan, so they figured they’d take the initiative and develop robots themselves, complete with a charter to “set ethical guidelines concerning the roles and functions of robots”.  You know, so they don’t go apeshit on their masters.  It’s sort of creepy that South Korea’s answer to a low birth rate is to make robots that will become “key companions” for humans in the future.

My suggestion?  Let’s ship half the Philippine population over to South Korea.  That should take care of their frickin service needs.
