Whoa those were cool! Great post! the movements were great! Robotics realy have come a long way.

Did you check out the uber scary Japanise Female Robot just a few videos down? Why did they make that? is it for customer service jobs or what?

eek - scary thought. its bad enough dealing with increasing automated services over the phone when you are trying to sort problems out and it is so much better when you can deal with a human person face-to-face... in the future you wont even be able to do that if the robots are to become customer service!!!

I hate to break away from my usual objective observational self... but...

THOSE LITTLE DUDES ARE AWESOME!!!... ahem...

I mean, the engineers on that project must have put alot of extra time and creativity into their work.

HOLY **** THOSE MOVEMENTS WERE FLUID!!! ... cough ... sorry.

I haven't seen servo's programmed that well since the automotive assembly line I was at last week... but those arms were anchored to something and didnt have to take into account weight distribution like these little dancing guys.

Man what I would give to work with those engineers on their project. I gotta get away from the industrial side of robotics and into something fun like that!

GO LITTLE DUDES! DANCE! WOOH!

Robotics really have come along way since the first grasping arm
in the 60s.

That was definately the best display of programming and engineer-
ing I've seen in robots in, well, ever.



On a more economic side, you could make a nice chunk of change
taking those on tour.

I think they have better ideas as to what to do with them, other than taking them on tour...

... like selling them to people who want to take them on tour. lol.

You know, I had an idea a while back.
When I retire, I want to make a working model of Johnny 5, take it downtown, and do a show for people. Not one of those cheap magicians you usually see, number 5 would go around greeting people, and commenting on them as if he'd never seen people before.

Ignore the cheesy intro music. Not as cool as the above but way more practical .

Yeah, i've always thought that those robots were awesome. I think i first saw a video of them a few years ago, but the shot was directly from the front. I've also seen one where they turn the lights down and the robots eyes glow blue, green, and red i believe (could be wrong on the colors, definitely remember blue though.)
