First, honda's corporate advert and '/run' branding for Asimo MKII

http://world.honda.com/run/

click the big green arrow, wait ages, click on the main screen, wait ages, watch the (really cool) video.

Secondly, Beck's new music video featuring Sony robots:

http://www.beck.com/

click on videos> video B (Hell Yeah) then high or low...

much funkier, although not as impressive as Honda Asimo's comedy run past the bloke with the suitcase Smile

They are kinda cute, but Sony's site for them is a little tight lipped about what they can actually do, whereas Honda's is choc full of cool videos demonstrating what you can do (I think it could get me toilet paper when I'm sat on the loo and have run out, so for that, it's worth it!)


hmm, I know how we can settle this - ROBOT FIGHT!!!

yeah - but it'd be pretty funny. Plus, the Sony ones might stand a fair chance, they've put a lot of work into the robot protecting itself when it falls down, and getting back up again.

Still Asimo seems to have the edge in running around, he could probably drop-kick the sony ones out of the room.

Let's face it - this is what we always wanted robot wars to be about, not some silly upturned dustbins fighting it out with sharpened screwdrivers!

My pitch to the networks: Programmer war! get 4 asimo robots, and get 4 groups of university programmers to pre-program them for a fight. Arm them with twin uzis, drop them off on an island somewhere and let them fight it out...

I refuse to watch any of these robots fight untill they have atleast one rotating blade attached to them.
