An anonymous reader writes "Ever wonder what life will be like when the robots take over? On Saturday, some of us might get a glimpse, when the first robot film festival kicks off in New York. Botskers (robot Oscars) will be awarded and the event will feature a red carpet, robotically milled statuettes, a robot-human comedy duo, and a rock band with robot musicians playing backup. 'We are trying to focus on celebrating robotics and thinking about positive futures,' says festival creator Heather Knight of Marilyn Monrobot."
