    Does anybody else think of Manhacks when they see videos like this?

    @kettch: Gaah! That game left me so scarred, whenever I hear a high-pitched whiny sound like the ones those manhacks make when they show up, I have to fight an urge to duck and switch to the crowbar.

    I love that robot arm game. Seems like it would make a much better flight sim though. Wink

    But, I think robot arm is over done? All you need is a stable chair with 4 hydrolic pumps. And use gravity as force instead of real force. Then just tilt left when turning right. Stuff like that. Not super accurate, but, much more home acceptable.

     

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    @magicalclick: Irrelevant; that's a practical problem for any would-be buyer. This machine should be built and sold to theme parks in the first place.

    Wonder what the battery life is on those things. Can't be that great.

    And I'm guessing that the robot arm video is demoing the Kinect 2? Tongue Out

    @Bass: Next step: autonomous docking, battery exchange and battery recharge; Better Place for quadrotors.
