I just love this. More about it here on Physorg.

Is it made out of sapient pearwood?

Never thought of that, but yes it does look like THE LUGGAGE. I was too busy thinking how it moved just like by brother's old Staffordshire bull terrier.

Robosheep. It's come a long way since the unit with the power and control leads you posted a couple of years ago.

Watching a re-run of an old Top Gear programme yesterday, with Jeremy Clarkson and James May attempting to drive some of the earliest cars, I was struck by the similarities.

Just over a century ago, the typical car still resembled an awkward box of bolts, a bit like the LS3.

If war robots follow a similar trajectory, a century from now the LS3's descendants might be calling us to heel!

Damn you have to appreciate human evolution, when you look at that. God knows how you would take that onto a battlefield.
