Pertaining to "MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE," a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, and its author. That is all.
It's very prancy for a robot.
As thoroughly awesome as that is, the part where it slipped on the ice was a little too animal-equivalent-of-the-uncanny-valley for me. It was like watching some sort of floundering, headless pony-monster (without even any monkeys).
Ahhhhh - Mummenschanz...At least you wouldn't have to use the leaves to wipe.^_^
I echo Tim's sentiments. Do you think the scientists would be amenable to arranging a mechanical reproduction of the "Bambi and Thumper on the ice" sequence?
I think they used too many monkeys.
I picture scores of these, arriving by parachute and loudly traversing foreign lands to the collective bewilderment of local inhabitants. When each arrives at its designated coordinates, it sits still - perhaps for years, perhaps for thousands. There would be no more wars.
I shoved one of those Mummenschanz guys in 1983.They don't get back up.
Perhaps Coulton would be interested in making friends with one of these robots instead? http://www.engadget.com/2008/03/23/robot-drummer-goes-solo-plays-solos/Perhaps not. Perhaps he is afraid of robots that do things in a manner similar to that of humans. Perhaps he is unaware of his own mechanical origins. Who really knows, however?
I think we have a replacement for horse mounted cavalry.In all seriousness, a mechanical replacement for pack animals can be a huge deal.
I understand the point of the slow motion, but overall it seems rather cruel.
I don't think it bodes well for my future in this brave new world that I got really worried for the thing's safety. I even let out an "Awwww! Don't hurt yourself, little expensive thing!"
youhave to see this parady of it verry funny http://gizmodo.com/372272/video-of-bigdog-beta-quadruped-robot-is-so-stupid-its-hilarious
