    Man, science fiction movies really did a number on me. Whenever I see robots like this, I wonder if no one learned from robots having free will and such and going against humans, stupid as that may sound because it's still fiction after all. A few years ago I was freaked by the Anki Cozmo and that was considered adorable and friendly like on this review. I think that's telling a lot about how I feel about this... :eek:

    This is the video that @dstrauss didn't want you to see (he buried it in another forum where it was totally, totally off topic...!):



    I guess he thinks this will put his name on the robot overlords' "good" list...

    It's worth noting that this poor robot has no head. Once it becomes self aware... and it's only a question of time... perhaps it will decide that it wants yours...?!??

    Wait until I can post the secret one on the pommel horse and cause mass hysteria and panic.
