    Where are they going to put the buzzsaw?

      The very thing that popped into my head.

      Some friends and I were just gabbling about how Half Life 2 came out for Mac today, too. I shared this link to them with the obvious "Speaking of: oh shit, iRL Manhacks!" line before I read the comments.

    Huh... I've been in that room (or an identical one on a different floor) when I got a lab tour several years ago. They were just doing wheeled robots with binocular cameras in there then, though. It seems they've... adapted. Definitely some cool research.

    So I take it next week you'll be posting a video of ones that burrow underground, and have buzz-saws?

    "Be very afraid" is so much of an understatement...

  5. Gets you right in the reptilian hind-brain, doesn't it.

    Damn it, JWZ! What did I just tell you about showing me nightmare robots?

    I can't out run them and I can't out fly them.

    You got any footage of relentless swimming automatons?

    It's very cute, but it's hardly autonomous. Unless you're wearing markers and standing in a room full of high-end mocap hardware, you should be safe from Skynet for now.

    This is what I did last week:

    Not quite as aggro, but my flying robot can melt concrete.
