I'm not going to watch it now, because the last time I watched a movie from here I was frightened so much my hands are still shaking. But I'm sure it's great :) .

That's pretty cool. Now all they have to do is make the eyes functional and add a brain unit, and you've got droids! :D

Bah! Lurker is just trying to frighten you. You'll miss it unless you turn the volume up and pay close attention. :)

Yeah. That ghost isn't that freaky. I mean you can hardly see it in the hub caps.

Amazing robots. If there was such a thing as a dancing Turing test, these droids would have passed it. They dance much better than a few humans I know. :p

I wonder how they'd do in sync swimming :p

wow, nice.
When robots are common though, that will be pretty lame :p, with that Joe and Mac in dinossaur island ending music specially.

Nice show. If you think that's something you should check out Honda's next generation ASIMO (http://world.honda.com/HDTV/ASIMO/). It can even run and it is life-size. I've been following his career for the last few years and it's just getting more and more life-like. Interesting stuff.

:o ASIMO is Linux, QRIO is Windows XP.

I fail to recognize the motive behind your apparent thirst for ABC (Attention By Comparison), but, yeah, whatever you say, bud. I was simply mentioning, while on the topic of a little, technologically advanced robot, that there is also a very interesting life-size, technologically advanced robot some individuals might happen to find intriguing.

I fail to recognize the motive behind your apparent thirst for ABC (Attention By Comparison)Thanks for dissing me. :o

Just saying, QRIO has rounded edges and is supposed to be cute and user-friendly. ASINO is (from the impression you make on me) faster, stronger, better, and more technologically advanced. Besides which, QRIO is an "entertainment robot", while from what I gather from the quick glance I took at the website, ASINO is more the object of intensive research. QRIO is all plated over with covers to prevent fingers getting caught, and looks somewhat more organic; ASINO is more exposed, and is clearly a robot.

Accordingly, QRIO is likely to be more appealing than ASINO for the average home robot-buyer, and use of ASINO will likely be restricted to those people who don't plan to use it as a household pet.

The comparison between Windows and Linux struck me as rather fitting, but I apologize if it offended you.
