I can't say I'm all that impressed. There were a couple of great things in there but most of it was just more complex with expressions, not really
any more convincing. Most of that still looked robotic and unconvincing. There was actually too much going on in the facial expressions as well. I
don't understand why people still pursue this considering the incredible cost of materials and time/engineering when you could do something much more
realistic on a computer screen with less manpower, no materials, faster, on a $800 dollar rig with a decent video card... other than the love of doing
it of course, which I could certainly understand that. That isn't always practical though when money and time is involved.
I'd like to see animatronics continue, but I'd like to see some real progress in robotics. You know, the kind that you see in iRobot. If I saw a
robot running around, picking up objects and looking at them, talking.. then I'll be impressed.
