The "Robots" exhibit that opens tomorrow at London's Science Museum bills itself as an exploration into "the ways robots mirror humanity and the insights they offer into our ambitions, desires and position in a rapidly changing world." But as we all know, any substantial collection of robots also serves as a reminder that at some point, probably pretty soon, some or all of these will be our all-powerful emperors!
