Video Of A Chair Bot From Japan Walking Around
The guys in this video built a giant chair robot. The robot sits bent knee and the human sits in the chair. The robot stands up and the human moves it around with a joystick. It's too bad that the chair doesn't actually sit on the floor (they need a step stool to sit in it).

Futuristic Hover Drone Invented In England In This Article
Here is an interesting article about an inventor from England who has created a hoverdrone. It is basically a cross between a hovercraft and a helicopter which looks like a flying saucer. It's shaped like a bell with the rotating blade above the bellshape. The air is forced down around the sides of the bell which I assume causes lift. This thing looks like the hover drones from the Dark Angel TV series. The real question is can they scale this thing up so it can carry a human?

Guy Almost Hits His Head While Riding A Robotic Arm For A Good Time
Guy in this video sits in a car seat which is welded to a robotic arm. The arm swings him around and I assume it is controlled by a human operator verses a recorded or random sequence of movements. Even so a couple times he almost hits his head on the ground for a Darwin Award.

Patchs The Horse Rides Around In A Cadillac Like A Person
It's come full circle now from horse drawn carriages to car drawn horses. The horse in this video is named Patchs and these two guys have modified their car so that the horse can drive around with them. The front passenger seat has been removed and the horse sits on the backseat and looks over the windshield. They also added some padding to the top of the windshield and removed the roof of the car. It looks like a giant white Cadillac but they used a spray can to put brown dots all over it. They buy cheeseburgers for the horse which he eats and he answers the phone and sleeps in a human bed. Whatever works.

Art Exhibit In Scotland With A Giant Lifelike Head Sculpture
There is a crazy looking art exhibit going on in Scotland right now and a lot of the sculptures are ending up in the Yahoo most emailed photos. The photo seen here is a sculpture of someone's head laying down flat in sleep or some such. It is pretty lifelike looking but the trick in this photo is that there is a security guard guy laying behind the sculpture which even makes it look more weird. The sculptures themselves look really lifelike though as the skin tone looks almost exactly right. Some of the other sculptures were of giant babies and other such giant humans.
Check out the full sized photo of the giant head for yourself.Read More >>

Monkey Plays The Video Game Ms Pacman For The Win
In this video there is a monkey (chimp?) setup with it's own Ms Pacman terminal. It seems that they have the screen and the joystick ruggedized so if the monkey gets crazy mad and starts beating on it nothing gets broken. The monkey does pretty good moving Ms Pacman around capturing the corner pebbles, capturing bananas, eating the ghosts, and getting eaten by the ghosts. The human 'trainer' person does a little bit of directing by pointing at the screen with suggestions on where the monkey should move to but for the most part the monkey is playing the game. At one point the monkey gets very excited and jumps away from the console before the trainer gets him back to the game.

Spoof Video Of A Woman Eating A Bunch Of Mentos And Drinking Diet Pepsi
So if you live in a cave and you haven't seen the vidoes of mentos being dropped into bottles of Diet Pepsi this is a spoof of those videos. The woman takes a bottle of Diet Pepsi and 'drinks' it. At this point she eats a whole pack of mentos and then jumps up and down to mix the two togather. You'll have to watch the end of the video to see what happens to her afterward. Obviously this video is a spoof and most if not all of the Diet Pepsi spills down onto the ground and she doesn't really eat the mentos either.

Female Japanes Android Unveiled In Japan For The Win
So here is a video of a demonstration in Japan showing a human like 'android'. The android stays sitting in the chair the whole time so I'll wager they still need to work on that whole walking thing. The actual face looks pretty real but I noticed they covered up the hands with gloves because they probably made it look fake. The android moves around but you can tell the motions are driven by servos as they are hardly smooth to say the least. The commentary in the video is all in Japanese so good luck with that. Maybe they need to pair up with the company working on that robotic pack mule for the US Army.
