Life near the singularity

From the BBC

Two airports have been alerted after a giant robotic balloon escaped from a science centre in South Yorkshire.
The flyborg has a computerised brain which allows it to avoid obstacles.

A spokesman for Magna said: "Two technical staff were moving a flyborg - an artificially intelligent flying robot airship filled with conventional party-balloon gas - into the main Magna building.

The "main Magna building" sounds kind of ominous, too. (via slashdot).
