I can't believe I didn't post this already, it's not even news anymore. I'll post it anyway since it is so damn cool. Honda has developed their third generation humanoid robot that can walk on two legs and is completely self-contained, i.e. everything is inside the space suit-like casing. Have a look at the wonder at ASIMO's own homepage. They're even cool enough to offer the videos in QuickTime. My brother sent me this link to a brazil webpage that has a fabulous commercial for Honda Accord [Honda's site seems to be faster though in .swf as well. What is this?]. Apparently what we in Denmark call a Storm P device is known as a Rube Goldberg device in english. I guess I learned something today as well.
