Rash of robot sightings could be a sign of the impending robopocalypse — or an elaborate hoax

Robots of various shapes and sizes have been seen making their way through a number of cities in the United States without any apparent human oversight. Sightings have been reported in Pasadena, Los Angeles, and along Hollywood Boulevard, as well as some undisclosed subway stations and industrial parks. Now, while it's very possible that this marks the beginning of a full scale mechanized invasion, it's also possible that it's a part of a clever prank. Regardless, you can keep track of the ongoing situation by following the Brilliant Machines Tumblr.

And should you spot a robot in your neighborhood, be sure to tweet using the #brilliantmachines hashtag.
