    It looks real to me...yikes

    Top secret military experiment?

    If I ever see this, Fruit of a Loom just sold another pair of underwear.

    Whoa, that looks pretty spooky, the noise it makes also adds to the effect. This thing would make a pretty good monster for a horror movie/video game.

    Hopefully this will be the next step for them.
     
  5. If I saw one of those IRL I think I would pee my pants and run away screaming.
     
  6. You've watched it... you cant unwatch it... stay tuned for more TALES OF INTEREST!

    whoah, incredible.
     
  9. That was pretty sweet. The most impressive part was when it was pushed, but the legs moved to balance itself. That must be really well programmed.

    I thought the EXACT same thing. That thing scares the crap out of me.
     
  14. Me too! That thing freaked me out.
     
  15. It might use some sort of genetic programming. Nateo built a robot that worked like that, maybe he'll see this and chime in.

    They have races in the Mojave desert for robot vehicles (they self navigate and decide on alternate paths when faced with obstacles)). Popular Science covered robot technology and military applications a few months ago. The near future will see robot cargo trucks. There is still a lot of resistance over robots that can make shoot- don't shoot decisions. Can't blame the doubters. I mean, what if they decide to use Windows as the OS?:eek:

    Oh, and what's up with Axel Rose at the end of the video?
