    Lol. Well, the general consensus is that this is some far out underground advertisement campaign by bmw, but check it out anyway.

    It's very realistic looking. If it is an ad, its too much money for the small amt of ppl who are going to see it (relative to a tv commercial) If its' real, its really neat. However, i dunno about that car stop test, even tho the car is pretty slow if it can do that its a strong **** robot. In which case it would make the creator millions, cuz that would be perfect for so many things, military use number one on the list

    Here's the story that picks it apart

    this is what suggests ad, cuz for them to have put booklets in all of those high dollar mags, they have to have some money.

    Weird...and not entirely convincing. Some of the videos (especially the "Car Stopping" one) looked very CG-ish when it came to the robot. And the, in the article, when the author mentions that the "Doctor"'s address (and web server) is the same as a Commercial Post-Production facility, that just kinda ruins the whole thing for me, ya know.

    I definitely think this is some sort of extravagant ad campaign...for who/what, I'm not sure, but from the sound of things, I'd probably lean toward Mini Cooper.

    Whatever it is, it's pretty well done, and it looks really cool. And if, somehow, it's true, I want one!!
