you'd think it could at least wipe the head off of the beer if it is going to make facial expressions while pouring it. But i guess it will keep you from getting too hammered because it could put a substantial dent on your intake with those pouring times

Just coming across this for the first time, but that creature is freakishly scary. If I were the dude in the parking lot, I'd probably have some eerie pictures going through my head as I kicked a 230 lb robot with catlike reflexes.

Honestly, imagine a herd of those things (with quieter power packs) cresting a hill in the distance and headed in your direction, bearing the flag of a foreign "peacekeeping" nation. That's what it's gonna be like to be the "other guys. "

"Paging Drs. Brewster and Dyson. Dr. Robert Brewster and Dr. Myles Dyson, please report to the scary room."

Here is a bipedal that balances on its own. The support around it is in case it falls, but doesn't support it when it walks. Balancing is all handled by the robot. I have to say, it is definitely not as freaky as the 4 legged one.



It is being developed by a private company, Anybots (http://anybots.com/). The guy that started the company built his own Segway which I think is pretty cool. Smart guy.

The biped sounds like jumping on a trampoline with squeaky springs.
It seems more like a robot than the quadped.

Don't forget the Three Laws of Robotics....

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Yeah right...
