I, for one, welcome our new transformer gimp cyborg overlords

"The Main Show, titled 'MOVE, LIVE,' will feature a theme of 'In Movement is Freedom. In Movement is Life.' Single passenger 'i-unit' concept vehicles and a mountable, walking 'i-foot' robot will join with dancers in a 'mobility performance' that will introduce the concepts of 'The Wonders of Living and Moving Freely' and 'The New Relationship Between People and Vehicles.' A 360-degree large screen will surround the audience and actors, and, together with other stage equipment, present the audience with scenes of nature and tomorrow's society."

    I'm so sorry, I had to use your Journal for this.

    I have written to you on jwz@jwz.org with regards to a feature for an IT magazine on one of your past projects.
    I write to you here because I'm not sure if my mail reached you there. Could you please confirm and let me know if you've received it-or if I'll need to resend it.

    Sorry once again.

    and yet you overlook all the other robot pictures, and the goofy as fuck concept drawings.

    I like the "My Segway has come to life and seeks to kill all humans" robot.

    plus there's a snazzy video in http://expo.toyota-g.com/index_en.html

    I realize I'm a little late arriving to the party, here... but I have the yet-unreleased, developer's version of Adobe Photoshop BS and it has a new feature under Image/Adjustments called "Photo enhance..."

    Well, I took to zooming in on the logo on one of the i-unit and here's what I found:
