    That's pretty cool. Too bad it's just going to get stolen by Megatron, and turned into a weapon against the Autobots.

    Creepy? No. Amazing? Yes.

    That's a lot of effort put into making a robot just so it can play a violin, heck the robot even sways around to make it seem more life like.

    That is pretty awesome.

    Now let's hope almost every sci-fi movie ever was wrong and the robots don't go on a rampage and kill us all.

    That's what makes it so damn creepy - seriously that freaks me out, as much as I like sci-fi and Transformers and such, seeing a machine that moves in such a human-like way unsettles me for some reason.

    It is utterly stunning how smooth and fluid the movements are. And it actually plays pretty well. Hard to beleive it's not alive when it moves like that.

    I'm the same way. I always wondered if dolphins had thumbs if they'd take over the world or something, you know? But machines think faster then we do. And if one had self-awareness and more joined in against us... we'd be screwed 8D..
    Unless it were like, the Autobots. Unfortunately, they don't really exist.
