Well, it's not like we go around LOOKING for that sort of thing. It's just when you've been trained to such an exceedingly high level of Grammar Fascism the mistakes jump right out at you. Now don't make me Zyklon-B your dictionary.

Considering the state of affairs in South Africa, they probably need something like that. Is it just me, or does that thing resemble some of the Japanese anime robots?

Also, notice it was armed with an R4.

I think that it is loosely based on Patlabor.

Looks like a case of tunnle vision on the part of the designers. They, for some reason, tried to keep the human shape in the design. Why? The mechanics of building a two legged machine is a waste of resources.

I give it a high mark for the design and function as far as engineering, but for function and practicality, it should have been built different.

probably to not make it look TOO scary to the civilians it's working around....

what i want to know is why it needs to use a rifle designed for humans. you'd think they could build a rifle into it's arm or something....and store ammo in it's torso, that way it wouldn't have to reload every 30 rds.

You should see Patlabor. They carry giant revolvers that hold six rounds. Granted, the robots are 50 feet tall, and they're anti-tank rounds....

Not only that, but you want it to be able to do some things that a human can do, like climb ladders, walk up and down stairs, drive vehicles, and enter mass transit like subways and buses. Good luck getting ED209 to do that stuff.

ok guys. I'll clue you in, because I posted this video here about a year ago. That isn't some fancy new product about to hit the streets. It's a portfolio piece made by a 3d Graphics animation studio as a example of their skill.

Pathetic boob What was that you were saying about "exceedingly high levels" ?


By the way, proper nouns, like your screen name, should be capitalized, numbskull.

Ohh yeah..... When come back, bring pie......

They did a good job. I thought the background footage was shotin New Orleans, but it was Johannesburg South Africa. My bad.

The biggest problem is going to be what to call them when the cover ups begin........'The thin titanium line' or maybe 'the thin robot line'.

well.. robots are coming.. to be used in urban environments and urban warefare and surviellance. but they wont be manlike. . they will be insect like. several hurdles to overcome.. minuturiation of power supplies.. mobility programming, networked controlled..

but its not real far off..

imagine a soldier able to command a swarm of bees, or nats ... or both. so small the enemy cant see them. now imagine several hudred of these is a swam as quick as bees or hornets. imagine them armed with some sort of weapon system... jihadis hidding in a room waiting for the stack to breach... instead the room is filled with buzzing and he is swarmed and stung to death...

its coming.. only a matter of time... it makes perfect sense. think like the kung fu monks thought.. copy movements and forms of nature.. become the tiger.. become the snake.. become the swarm.....
