While I realize it is for demonstration purposes, I can't help feeling like the dude who kicked the little guy apart is a complete jerk.

I never worried about Robot domination, until I saw Al Gore give a speech...
That's my alma mater....

That was neat - yeah, I belly-laughed at the end :D I can totally relate...

Mmmm - robot module sex! although it also reminded me a bit of a circus gymnast act. Nice that they left in the last few secs.

Then there's this article: http://www.motherjones.com/interview/2009/01/should-you-fear-the-killer-robots.html

Not in the same sphere as these lil guys, but in *our* sphere.
