    Yep, humanity is screwed. I knew Terminator wasn't just a science-fiction movie.

    If the next upgrade is sand-eating, we're boned. With giant, metallic wangs.

    Sweet. I'd like to place an order for when they are actually affordable. Say in 50-100 years.

    This is why I hate machines...

    Never thought I'd get to use that quote...ever.I've always found robotics very interesting,I've messed with the LEGO Mindstorms kits before,built some amazing things from them,but when it gets to the point that there is a possibility that said machines could overthrow us,well that's as silly as saying Arnold Schwarzenegger is gonna be California's next Governor...oh wait....yep we're boned.

    Man, those robots are cool.

    The Nao thing is actually kinda cute, though I was hoping they would fight. :/

    Also, this was cool.

    Pet Sky-Byte nao, plz.

    After ASIMO, I really hope that they try making a real Transformer. It is ambitious but not impossible. And make it intelligent not just transformable! :D

    You're just jealous that a Japanese car company's kicking VW's butt on the robot front. You'd pimp the crap out of a VW Roboflugle.

    No fucking shit. Volkswagen isn't even in the robot making business.


    No. Pimping cars is stupid as hell. I don't want 18 TVs in the trunk of my car.


    I said no because I don't think people should make humanoid robots.

    First off, it was a joke.

    Second, I figured VW wasn't making robots. Well, not the kind being discussed in this thread.

    Third, By pimping cars I meant you acting like VW's personal pimp on these boards, not gratuitous and pointless car modifications.

    Fourth, humanoid robots are something we should look into. Besides AI not being as "ZOMG Doom!" as Hollywood paints it, there are great potential uses for the mechanical advances that could be brought about by making them able to move better.

    Why are you so scared of humanoid robots?

    In the words of the most eloquent humanoid robot of recent times,

    "Maybe he's a pussy."

    Sorry for beeing so rude, just not a good day for me.

    Anyways i don't think we should look inot humanoid robots becuase the world is already so dependant on machines. I really don't want to see the world becoming lazier.
