I can`t believe no one`s said this yet.

I doubt those separate `modules are indestructible. Until they can make those modules micro-sized, have no fear...

This robot would be perfect for Christian rock band dance floors.

Now there`s a scary thought...Christian robots taking over the world...Well. I mean...LITERAL robots.

Another useless toy made by some dork who thinks it proves that hard AI is possible. Yeah, uh, that thing is like five minutes away from taking over the world. (Rolls the drat out of my drating eyes.)

How slow? They won`t be taking over the world at the rate they move.

BORING. D:

well, if falling over after reassembly is the future of replicator/terminators, i think we`ll be safe.

Brilliant! Can`t imagine the amount of work that must have gone into that. I hope this work gets recognised!

Not sure what you`re referring to, kucjyaxlotl. The kick in the second half of video was to show the robot`s ability to adapt to outside disturbance. It wasn`t "help."
Interesting video with a funny end.

fairly impressive, although the self reassembly did need a bit of help from the engineer`s boot.

I`m sorry to lower the tone, but when it stood up at the end it looked eerily like an erect penis. Then it fell over.
