    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    It is a advertising program set up to (somehow) market the mini cooper.

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

    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...
