Wow. Spooky. Japan is in love with robotics these days.. So smart, but I will worry when AI becomes self created. (Robot thinks for itself).

That will come in 15 years or so... Serious. Scary too.. Remember Terminator 2?

Future robotics can be put to good use in 3rd world countries to help out. Sounds odd, I know.
We just need to get fusion power cells.

Spooky in a zombie way. They were slow. I wonder how they take obstacles. Also, predicting the future have proven to be very hard. There's too many wildcards (unexpected events/inventions who make the technology walk another way than expected). Try reading an old donald duck comics. There should be one where they predict year 2000 (made in the 1940's).

I am impressed by the technology, to be sure, but a robocat? No, thanks, I'll keep my living, breathing, furry ones that eat me out of house and home! [img]graemlins/kittynow.gif[/img]

I bet the next "robots overtake humanity"-movie ala Barbarella will take place in Japan

To fight the robot threat we need to build a robot army of our own to fight on our side. Or perhaps include a simple killswitch.

Yeh, Choc would turn this 'robocat' into small pieces of metal and fake fur. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I'd like to see it with a cat, and see what the cat does.. maybe hiss, and smack at it? hahaha.. that would be cool to watch.

Who in their right mind would derive pleasure from gently stroking a robot cat?
