    Cool Hybrid Robot

    When I saw this, I thought wheel chairs are going to get incredibly good. Then I thought, "that won't be the first application they think of." It is exciting.

    That is so funny! That robot just picked up that 100lb box and carried it off over things through snow and into another building like it was nothing. Why have us humans around except to reproduce enough of us to build enough of them!!!

    That would be great if it can make my meals and do housework for me.

    Virginia, if it can wash and style our hair too, it would be well worth the price - and no tipping required!

    I was just thinking if they can make this "thing" work so smoothly, what great improvements can they make in wheelchairs.

    Ann, Suze-Q and I were thinking along really important lines, like doing our hair and cleaning house for us. They could even bring our dinner to us, or maybe breakfast in bed.

    And would you also like to include roboFido in with your package?

    It could even load our dishwashers for us. Wow!
