Will Robots One Day Rule The World?

Robots have become a very mainstream topic these days. I just ran across this video on Google+ that I wanted to share because this has become the source of many a conversation recently. By conversation, I mean my excited rhetoric talking about all of the opportunities kids have these days to get into robotics and how I envy them.
