Neat, but:

But when the autopilot malfunctioned, Glenn was able to control the shuttle with the manual fly-by-wire system with relative ease.

ummm.

Also, this is the promo. The actual (ummm, fight?) happened yesterday.

Yes, the robot was good during the game. However, you should have heard what the Kuka robot was tweeting about toasters in the locker room.

So they have the fastest robot EVAR, and prove it by showing a video entirely in slow motion.

If I learned anything from the robot vs human chess battles, it's that these circus acts are actually a robot and 20 man dev team making changes on the fly to counter the tactics of a single human.

/Seriously could a plasma gun even exist in the 40 watt range?


Depends. 40 watts could just be the average output (40 j/s). If you were to output 40 j/s average, but only be able to fire for 1 nano second every second (duty cycle of 1e-7%), that means that you're bursting something like 40,000,000,000 joules for 1 ns. Maybe ask XKCD guy if it could be enough to do anything bad and/or create a plasma at STP.

It's the future, right?
 Like how lightbulbs used to be 100 watts, but then we have bulbs that make just as much light and only use 14 watts.
So in the future, a 40 watt plasma rifle is like a 5000 watt plasma rifle of today. They are much more effecient.

I'm no sciencer but a 40 watt laser will do a good job of etching materials or cutting thin sheets of metal. Industrial lasers are about 3-10 times more powerful while military "melt missiles" lasers are about 50-100 times more powerful.

It's also phased which means its more awesome.

I like this one best it's full of techno babble, I am no scientician but I don't think energy works like that.

/40 J/s / 1000 = .04 J doesn't sound very harmfull

The full video is up. The boll guy does a terrible job acting like he can't keep up with the robot. It's kinda disappointing the bad acting he does.

I saw a video of this yesterday.. it sucked.  Created for the drama factor.  The human was running out 10 to 20 feet to make his plays.. but for some reason.. even tho he is supposedly one of the best in the world, he put the ball right back at the robot..that was stuck without being able to move, and had a limited range of less than 5 feet from its position.

CSB:
Went to a gun store/range. Carried a rifle in, slung over my shoulder, safetied and with the bolt locked back. I accidently bumped the bolt release into a display and then you hear the loud *chack* of the bolt slamming foward. I immedietly stopped all movement and showed my hands, because I figured they probably wouldn't like that sound. I was right. About 4 different employees had their hands on their sidearms. They all just looked at my for a few seconds before they decided  I probably wasn't about to start blasting in the store.

CSB # 2
I was getting one of my first guns, and I was curious about how hard it was to load the magazine. I asked the guy if he would let me load a few cartridges so I could see how it was. Without the gun anywhere close to me, of course. Even though the gun was put back behind the counter, he looked extremely nervous about it.

albatros183: ? how could you load the magazine without the gun being near you


I know, right? For a second I didn't think it would work. But it turns out that some magazines are removable. Like you can totaly remove it from the gun and it becomes it's own piece. I thought it was a bit weird doing it that way since I was always taught that you lock the slide back and then start jammin' bullets down into the bullet-out hole. I don't know why you'd need to remove a magazine, since it would be like detaching your gas tank, and carrying it to the gas station for a fill up.

But like anything, I suppose there are some sort of professional applications for that, that normal people probably never use. Like the permanent press setting on a dryer, the turn signal on a car (I know I am turning, why do I need a reminder? Again, there is probably something professionals use it for),  or that light bulb in the stove. Fark that stove lightbulb. I tried using it once, and it took farking FOREVER to cook brownies that way.

The actual match. Such as it is. Because it is a simply a commercial and the player can't act. Because he is not an actor. They should have got an actor. The movie "Ping Pong Playa" was way more fun and believable. Also there aren't enough Asian people being hired in Hollywood. Amen.

Yep, a whole lot of staged drama.  At any point he could have just put it outside the robot's limited reach.  Maybe they'll sell manufacturing robots, I have no idea, I'm not really in the market for one.
