JWZ, stop showing footage of the robots that will kill me in my sleep.
I like burlesque show pics better.

I do like the way it timidly steps across the pegs, readjusting foot position to get them centred.
Also, with such brain-damaged-puppy antics, clearly Sony need to license this advanced technology for the next generation of Aibos.
Seriously, I look forward to seeing "Lil' Dog" in stores in time for a future Christmas. If they could put that technology in an Aibo form factor they would sell millions of them. Actually, I look forward to the press release where they figure out that selling toys is more profitable than selling crap to the government.
Oh, you'll be fully awake.
Cooking bacteria from scratch, armed drones, walking learning robots (funded by DARPA).
It's like no-one in the field of science reads any science fiction at all.
Remember how scary Daleks were when you first saw them? But you knew that in a pinch, you'd be safe from them once you located a staircase.
With this robodog/baygen radio, there is no escape.
I hope there's enough booze in the house tonight to get to me to sleep.
Daleks don't climb stairs; they flatten buildings.
See, that's why I always rated Cybermen above Daleks. Legs, dammit.
...until you learn that Daleks can fly, and you're still fucked. :)
Bah. Where do you think they get all their ideas from?
Surely things won't go wrong this time, that was just fiction.
eerie - want.
also - like the music:
and how long before that can be out there killing the enemies of our Empire?
I think I would be more appreciative if it looked more like a dog and less (despite its quadripedia) like a cockroach.
