In fiction today, besides zombies and natural disasters, robots are probably the most timeless popular form of apocalypse. On a fundamental level, rampant machines represent the failings of human achievement; civilization is destroyed by its own ego and arrogance. This sentiment dates all the way back to Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. A mad scientist thought he could cheat God and create a monster. However, as time passed, it seemed as though a different kind of Frankenstein’s monster was approaching. Machines began popping up everywhere, replacing human labor. We wondered if our own creations might one day grow a consciousness and kill us all.
