A man has pledged allegiance to robots in the hope he won't be killed by them.
Brandon Sherrets has founded the International Registry of Humans Pledging Allegiance to Killer Robots, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.
He said: "We're seeking to make registrants a bit safer than they might otherwise be in the event the world becomes overrun with killer robots. Call us defeatists or realists or just well prepared.
"I would say that a killer robots are coming - make no mistake about it. The technology is advancing at almost an exponential rate, and unfortunately, there is no amount of legislation that can stop it."
