Pathetic robotics... We still use "rockets" to get into space... Cars dependant on fossil fuel?

We're primitive. It's almost embarassing.

There's a video of this robot falling over during a demonstration. I'm sure you can look it up on Moo Cube (there's also a link on Wikipedia); I'm at a restricted facility so you'll have to search for it yourselves if you're curious. It's kind of funny: they turn off the lights and the narrator makes some half-assed apology for the failure (in Japanese).

And I'm pretty sure it has the learning ability of a toaster. That is, no learning ability.
