I just love anything to do with robots!!!!!!!!!

I think this is the only way forwards for now.. sending robots on missions that will cost too much to send humans for., Think about it, robots have no requirements for water/food/oxygen...so less space and weight needed on spacecraft that have humans in

The japs went into space, and then basically stated they will send a humanoid robot to the moon by 2015

I mean just look how far their number 1 commercial robot ASIMO has come



Then we have the US militarys robot 'soldier'...imagine that on the dunes of mars...(plus at the near ending of the vid it jumps high like a horse)!




Humans may have taken one great leap, but I think its the robots who will take greater and further strides...

That four legged thing's cute. It can dance!

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

yeh but just imagine a few years down the line when its disguised as a camel or some other creature and sent to spy/or fight wars for the US!!  The future could be creepy!

At least the japs did the first 2 legged humanoid and are going to send it to the moon!!  Mars exploration would be entirely different if not restricted to rovers who move just meters per day over flat terrain... these things can climb!!

Of course, this is where they got the inspiration from, isn't it ..

Great post Bouncer! and all very pertinent!  :tu:

I would like to see the look on ETs face when ASIMO and his pooch come sidling towards them on  Kepler-20e!  :lol:
