Ewwwww.

The first little bit when it checks out the water reminds me of the inquisitive water snake from The Abyss.

"It can swim 30 minutes on a charge. So, the impending revolution will either be short lived or our destruction will be incredibly swift."

Woah, very creepy-cool. I wasn't really impressed until it got in the water and started moving around. Then it was awesome.

Oh man, I'm not going to be able to sleep now. It's hunting. Hunting for my flesh. My delicious flesh.

There there! It did not knock down any buildings, fight with Mothra or eat Tokyo. Sleep peacefully.

Hilarious watching super-serious Engineer Guy being interviewed by what appeared to be giddy schoolgirls.

They need to slap some jaws and large, gnashing fangs on that thing.

The more natural-acting robots get, the more I feel like chopping them into little pieces.

Hmm. I didn't watch the whole thing. Does it chase the schoolgirls? And do they have meat tied to their heads?

It's be creepier if it was on a plane.

And it was invented at Tokyo University. Why am I not the slightest bit surprised?

When is the match-up against Gojira?

Will they be marketing smaller versions to children for bathtime? And on which night will these smaller replicants be mysteriously activated, when all are asleep, puposed to murder or inhabit us; sliding, serpentine, into our ears and noses; the fatalities discarded as the weaker chaff; survivors' lives directed by the "master's" commands; humanity set one against another across the divides of merchandising and child-rearing?

I only ask because I'm probably not going to be home that night, and could someone tape it? Ta.

Awesome link. If kids are building stuff like this, it makes you wonder what's going on at Area 51.
