If you hold still it will have a harder time seeing you.

I don't think they've gone far enough. They need to make the nano-material capable of self-replication. You know, in case any gets scraped off.

rummonkey: If you hold still it will have a harder time seeing you.

Yeah, but the suspensor field will make it slippery, so when you grab it remember to hold it really hard.

Also, no butt stuff with hunter-seekers.  If you get it stuck up there, even Suk Imperial Conditioning won't stop the ER doctor from making fun of you.

"For example, a camouflaged robot could enter tough-to-access underwater crevices. If the robot changes color, biologists could learn about the pressures facing animals that live in these environments."

Like what?  Oh shiat, the robot turned Goldenrod!

The thing that always bugged me about that scene in the '84 version was that when you were looking at Paul from the hunter seeker's point of view, there was a freaking pendulum inside of it.

I guess you had to fully wind your hunter seeker up before the suspensor field would work or something?
