If this is true, then I recommend everybody watch the terminator films - you know what happens there - computers take over the world....

If it's just a joke - How did they manage to get the babies in the costumes? :eek:

If I had the support of a multi-billion dollar Japanese corporation backing me I could busta groove robot style just like them.

Chances are they will release an album next year.

its a pretty good glimpse at the possible/probable future.

when they figure out in depth self programming - thats when things will break wide open.

the last major technical 'age of advancement' was the 'computer age'
the next 'mini wave' is definately 'the internet age'

i'm pretty sure the next one will concern advanced robotics.
what you see in this video is just the beginning..

Robotics + A.I. + Nanotechnology...

sometimes I wonder if we are surging forward to a possible future as visualised in "T2: Judgement Day"...

I'm as terrified of being enslaved by robot overlords as the next guy (maybe more so) but that clip is nothing more than an intricate bit of choreographed programming. It's not like the robots were responding to the music.

I'm much more frightened of those damned furbies...they talk to each other!

It starts with chatter and next thing you know they're conspiring.


Whew, felt good to let that out.

what got me is how fluid the range of motion was.

they can walk and move perfectly .. add some more sophisticated sensors and programming and they will be able to navigate any kind of terrain much the way we would.

i cant ever see a future where we somehow allow machines to run amok and threaten our existance - but i can see another huge wave of unemployment due to jobs made obsolete by machines that can accomplish what they couldnt before due to limited movement etc..

I'm not too worried, they dance like white people.

Next they'll be working on 80 foot war robots like you see in those Japanese cartoons.

man, i'd love that !

well, they look like white people but they dance like japanese people :)

Anyway, I say the US need to build a big enough robot to crush all their robots just for kicks.

Make sure to use all japanese parts too, not only because they're built better but to add that little extra sting.

i want a robot that can sort and catalogue books movies and music.

pretty cool if its not fake...

Aren't we already enslaved by technology?
What's a few robots to do what's left?

nah, we enslave technology.

with the exception of kids with their gameboys/gamecubes/xboxes/playstations

everyone else has it under control.

oops - except the mindless masses that do everything the TV and radio tell them to do - but thats not the same ...

people using technology to enslave people ... not the same.

Gameboys are evil and sent from SATAN.
I swear if I have to raise my voice one more time to get through to a kid buried in a pokemon game....
I think I'll sell it to Gamestop:mad:

People enslaving people for NOW, but give it time:D

Let's have a face off between those japanese robots and these robots.
