    Click on the video and don't watch this at night.

    For some reason it just creeps the hell outta me. Probably because it's so very organic in it's movements but the limbs are bent in the wrong direction.

    I don't think George's vision of robots is what the future holds in store.

    Dang it...just HAD to go and watch it at night. Am thoroughly creeeeeeeeped out by that thing. I agree with Miana, I think it's the angle of the legs. It looks like one of those really bad black and white monster films that you see on Sat afternoon TV....The ones where the mad scientist's have done all sorta nasty experiments where they combine two different species, etc.


    ...and yet... I'm compelled to watch it again. [face_hypnotized]
