Is this secretly an ad for some new Transformers movie?

It all looks pretty fake to me.... but, I'm not some old guy in a warehouse building robots... so, I can't say for sure.

I mean, it made robot news worldwide when they could get ASIMO to walk up stairs. I would think if someone managed to build a bot that could stop a moving car, you would hear more about it than only on some backwater website.

It is a neat video though.

I don't know if I think it's real either.

I do think that it should be. We should be way further advanced with those things than we are now.

Our technology "advancements" are slow-ass.

If you couldn't tell that was fake you've been watching too many Hollywood action flicks (or too little)!

The quick self-corrections in grip and balance give it away as much as anything.

Viral marketing! What a concept! Not sure how it makes me want to buy a MINI though...
