Default Sure, Honda has been making boring motorcycles...

...but these frickin' things are still cool. The fact that they can walk like a human is incredible. I like how Honda continues to advance the same experiment/model. It will be interesting to see where they are at in ten years.

Seems the Honda boys are readying production on the cool looking CB that debut in Tokyo earlier this fall. Video: Honda CB1100F at Tokyo Show - Motorcycle Sport - MCN

Have you seen the Toyota robot? I was sent something a few days ago and it looks like the Toy model does things as cool as the Honda. Pretty impressive. Now as long as we keep Sarah Conner alive we should be safe from the takeover.

Oh yeah, the two retro models are really cool! But they aren't out, yet. And with our luck, they won't make it to the states.

And the Toyota robot playing the violin is freaky!

And if they do bring it to the States they'll do the usual Honda overpricing. As bare bones as it is it'll have to come under the Bandit1250 to stand a chance. Unlikely.

So is Honda going to instill the 3 Laws of Robotics behavioral inhibitors? you've heard of the three laws of robotics right?

1. A robot may not injure Dr Seruzawa or, through inaction, allow Dr Seruzawa to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given it by Dr Seruzawa except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Damn, that robot moves just like I used to in the 90's after a party session. You know, pressing your feet down hard to try to keep them from floating off the floor...

The All New NS 5 is ready for delivery and of course, it's Three Law Safe



I hate that when you have to hang on to the lawn to keep from falling off the earth....

Drat, I was trying to come up with a clever I-Robot quote myself.
