Roboquads are amassing… some of them have come to save us… some of them have come to destroy us… Oh, hang on, that’s Transformers. These are more Minority Report scuttly-scary, but still. Watch them in action. We’ll be sending one to find you…
Yes, okay, so there’s been a bit of delay between Round Three of our Robot World Cup and the quarter finals. They needed some oil after three rounds of knockout action (and besides, if the Cricket World Cup can last for what seemed like 17 years, I don’t see why our robo-contest can’t be strung out a bit).
Robots: they haven’t taken over the world yet, but they’re already capable of pouring us beer and controlling our home entertainment. If that’s not a crafty strategy for leaving us sofa-bound while they stage a cyber-coup at some point in the future, I don’t know what is.
Robots rule. Well, they don’t yet, thankfully, because us humans have cleverly neglected to teach them about battle tactics, gun-handling or human-frying laser technology. But what I mean to say is: they’re pretty cool. But which is the coolest?
Well, preorder one, anyway. You might remember Roboquad from Susi’s video preview in January this year. He’s a four-legged spiderbot from the same people who brought you the very-fine Robosapien.
It's a video. It's got four-legged dancing robots in it. Do you really need any more reasons to watch?
