poor asimo, that looked like he broke his ankle. at least he was wearing his gear though.

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P

Absolutely amazing. I would love to sit down with those devolopers over a beer or two, pull out the schematics and drawings, and pick their brains. Man, I'm a geek!

Chances are, they are too

I wish they'd find a better way to power that thing than the two stroke motor. The annoying noise just takes away from the accomplishment. I mean, you cant have something all high tech and space age sound like a weedwhacker, can you?
Look around for their other robot "little dog" its smaller, plastic, and quiet!

Yeah, in time I'm sure. It's likely the technology will come first, then figure out a way to power it. I'm sure those batteries that need to power it weigh much more than a 2-stroke. They are on the right track though, and I am eager to see the end result, whenever that may be.
