ROBOT Skateboarding-
Here is a video as a demo with no sound. So what do you think? Are we seeing an evolution of of something very powerful, or is this an illusion. It's only technology, but what we do with it has the impact that we sometimes overlook.

This rocks as the robot is real. It's name is Plen and was designed by Systec Akazawa in Japan and costs about $2000 US. IROBOT is coming because the mobility issue is being solved as seen by this video. The next steps to make it happen include improving the power supply, creating better vision/pattern recognition and the devolopment of strong AI to enable bots like Plen to run automonously. This blows me away. Minority Report anyone?
