, my jaw hit the floor. After years of thinking I would suffer alone with the memory, I found others who knew
. Along the way, I discovered other gems
... even though my personal tastes were more epic

Gracefull bipeds, miniature robot ballets....
Titled by the BBC as "Humanoid robots wow Japanese", The world's largest robot exhibit this weekend
in Yokahama features Asimo by Honda ["Asimo can now recognise individual faces and can understand gestures as well as spoken commands. Meet him once and he never forgets, responding by approaching and calling your name on subsequent meetings."
] as well as Sony's newest Aibo accesories and their stunning SDR-4X ll, a biped sporting "fluid walking motion and lifelike gestures." Epson Seiko caught my attention, though, with their dozen tiny Bluetooth controlled 12.5 gram Monsieur ll-P robot prototypes which executed a miniature choreographed ballet
Pretty soon they'll be scuttling around on our walls like cockroaches, watching us......
