    As long as we don`t make our creations sentient. Once we do that it`s all over. See: Terminator, The Matrix, iRobot, etc, etc.

    Very basic interpretations, but interpretations nonetheless. That is rather astounding.

    Isn`t this from James May`s 20th century? Think robotics may have moved on slightly since this tbh- but amazing never the less.

    I think we`d better start taking Asimov`s three laws of robotics more seriously.

    I wonder if Asimo recognizes the Mini Cooper as both a toy car and a mini cooper? Also, what happens when he runs into a full sized Mini Cooper? Will he recognize it as a Mini Cooper, but NOT a toy car?

    Anyway you look at it, it`s damn impressive!

    We`re not screwed, this is all triggers and still man-made stuff.

    When man creates REAL A.I with self-thought process that`s when we should be scared.

    -Asheron, it can `think` by itself...that`s the point. It was able to think by itself and discern a table from a chair. While not that complicated yet, it`s still amazing. The first step is always the hardest, true A.I. is a few years away.

    I`ve seen this before but it`s still amazing. I even like how James pronounces it "Mini Coopa" and ASIMO recognizes it should end in "er" instead.

    its not quite top gear charliew07, its another show james may does by himself "james may`s big ideas". there was another episode about travel, using flying cars and teleports etc, and another one about getting into space. a pretty good and interesting show and i recommend it to anyone
