    It’s no flying car, but at least it’s another step closer to an intergalactic proton-powered electrical tentacled advertising droid.

    I’ll be in my bunk.

    Dibs on “Inflatable Robots” for a band name. I’m thinking kind of Kraftwerk-meets-acoustic-folk.

    The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is about to get a lot more awesome/terrifying.

    Bah, we had fluidic robots back in the 60s:

    It reminds me of the tachikoma from Ghost in  the Shell. Hopefully it doesn’t have the same overly cute voice.

    Ever see the girl who does that voice. Epic cute ;)

    Of all the robots I have known, this might be the most disturbing.

    Ah really…?  You didn’t link to the Hizook article:

    I worked hard to write that up with Saul…

      I didn’t find out about this from your site. But since you asked *so* nicely, I’ve added a link.

        Ooops… re-reading my comment, that came off really bad (snarky and in bad taste).  You guys do a bang-up job citing sources; I just wanted to point you to the article.   Next time, I’ll be sure to add an emoticon to indicate that I’m just joshin’ you a bit.  ;-)  No hard feelings.

    This project officially removes the “genius” in his introductions. But it looks like a run ride!

    Sorry, takedown notice. I remember the ambulatory boob robot from Sleeper.

    Interesting idea. It might need different actuator placement to enable it to walk effectively, though, since the legs aren’t able to lift themselves up more than a couple inches.  Perhaps the torso could swivel to get one leg of each pair to rise up higher?

    Sort of those robots from ‘Ghost in the Shell’… sort of…
