Hey, didn't Ripley have one of those machines in the second Alien movie?
helen Monday Jan 31 02:09 PM
I think my kids already have the action figures for this one.

Heh. As I scrolled down to the Japanese creation, my first impression was that it was standing there holding a pair of scissors. I had images of being attacked by a string of paper people. . .
Cyber Wolf Monday Jan 31 05:03 PM
I want to see that thing walk and watch it handle obstacles. Then, if I like it, I'ma ask him to build me one!
Wombat Monday Jan 31 08:10 PM
If it was worth doing, the US Army would have already done it.

I envy Carlos. He has a dream.
Sweets Monday Jan 31 08:16 PM
Not only did he have a dream, he acted on it.

from the fullstory link: [quote] Success hinges on finding a way to balance a machine packing 3,500 pounds per square inch. [quote]
He'd better have some hellacious hydraulics. And a fast computer.
I'm thinking maybe he should have designed it to be very wide instead of very tall........of course the training wheels should help.

But it is bottom heavy like a Weeble, according to the link.
