Have you seen Honda’s all-new Asimo robot? No? Check this out! Yes? Re-watch this!

I think it’s amazing how far robot technology has gone in the last few years. It makes me think that, at this rate, robots will replace servers, greeters, and every other profession that is demonstrated in the video, in our lifetime. That’s all fine and dandy with me, but once they’re able to make webcomics, I’m in trouble :D

Enjoy Scene 37 – “Long Time, No See”!

Please continue to vote and check out the new Scrufflebeck’s sketch! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Keep playing BlockHopper beta and please keep sending us feedback! Thanks for playing! :D

Have a great weekend! :D

Joe.. think about it! Dominik will blow your mind open! Oh and,Bernie Jr. could make Samuel a new shell. Joe.. YOU CAN DO IT! USE THE FORCE! LET THE LIGHT COMPEL DOMIN- Okay. Maybe it was too far,even for a StarCraft/World of Warcraft/Star Wars fan.. May the force be with you!

Joe isn’t a dick, I’d want my body back too, I’d have most likely done the same thing.

As far as the robot and juice? It felt incredibly scripted, like a really complicated version of the old PC game “The Incredible Machine”. So no, not impressed.

HOLY SHIT. SAM, I THOUGHT YOU TRAINED TO BE BETTER THAN THE VAMPIRES?!?! And I agree with JarMan. Joe isn’t a dick there. Unless someone creates two shells for the both of them, I’d rather have him die and my body back than be stuck in the dream world. I mean, who the heck would want to end up in MC Creative[i]forever alone[/i]

13th? I guess….

I don’t think we’ll have a problem with the robots until they program the stick out of that things ass. I’m not sure why some of the most complex technology ever invented has to look so damn uncomfortable lol.
Story’s getting intense, Joe!!!!

I always knew Joe was a dick. I have to say, it takes either a good sense of humor or a lot of self-deprecation to name a character after yourself and turn him into such an ass, man. XP

But, seriously, I hope Sam’s alright. It’d be a shame to see him die so early after being introduced. I also hope that Joe gets his just desserts rather soon.

I was just thinking, the powers in dream world are any different than the powers in the real world?

actually the Honda-bot is impressive not for the software (chatbots are more impressive in that regard) but for the hardware. While there was not proper smoothness in the programming tweens for the Honda-bot’s movements, the mechanics behind the bot’s movements allow for plenty more than I’ve seen on four-legged robots. The mechanical engineering behind the new Asimo humaniod-type robot is superb. They just need a better AI for the machines rise to supremacy.

i got a couple things to say:
1. about sam, if Bernard created him -or at least his shell- does, at some kind of level, make him a sibling to Jess and Bernie? just want to get the mental family chart straighten out.
2. i suppose on the end of the last vid, elder said ‘he still lives’ i guess he meant sam, and wants to mind-kill him, which leads me to this. is Joe still under debt of the elder?
3. i thought, even for the elder, you had to be in the area to mind-communicate, it’s been stated by Andy(Andrius) that “one has the ->potentialvampireslimits<- too."
4. i wish the existence of Joe would get explained soon…
5. thumbs up by me!! XD (like I always do)

To everyone who said that it’s not impressive what the ASIMO bot did. Think about it.
Use enough strength to hold a glass to not break it nor to make it fall it’s a LOT of calculations,which until now were impossible from machines. Then,analyzing & knowing that the person that wishes to take the glass of water is holding it.. it’s probably over 5 terabytes of programming,calculations,analyzes and errors each action of the robot.

Yeah, but that’s a lot of work just to do something that a human child could do with ease.
