Very cool robot vid:


Lots of interesting things goin on in robotics at the moment. Curious when they are going to be moving past roomba for home robotics. Asimo would do well running the vacuum around my house and chasing my dogs while I'm off at work.

Frankly, I'd rather vacuum and chase the dogs while ASIMO is off at work.

Fine, I'll bite. What's the connection between Tom Selleck and robots?
Was the answer in that flubbed YouTube link?
