ASIMO has competition

OK, many of us saw ASIMO fall on his head today, but for a $170K robot it's pretty amazing to see how fluid his motion is.

HOWEVER, check out this little guy... the Sony QRIO...he can throw balls, rollerskate, pick himself up after being pushed over, and probably even walk correctly up stairs. This robot makes ASIMO look mentally handicapped.

(wait for the very end)

Pretty nice.

The dance has to be motion-captured sequences preprogrammed into the robot.

Other skeptical questions arise, such as: how would the robot treat a different sized rollerskating platform? Can the robot pick things up in addition to throwing them? And how would the robot react to a genuine fall, rather than a preprogrammed best-case-scenario collapse?

Does anybody else get creeped out by these videos?  I dont know why, they're just creepy.

Same. I get creeped out as well. Maybe it's because I own all three Terminator DVD's.

There's another reason, but I can't quite put my finger on it, or at least describe it by typing.

But I think I am thinking similar things as you are.
