thriller

First off, this Punjabi version of Thriller is just too good… But anyway, last weekend was dubbed “future weekend.” I went to the NextFest (which was like a geek-fest of futuristic gadgets and robots) and then the “Laptop Battle” (which you can read about this in my Matt Kelly CD review). The robots were…uhh… OK. Kind of disappointing (I guess we still have a ways to go before some real android type shit.) But it was pretty fun none the less.
Here’s the first “hostess-bot” which is available for rental in Japan (sex-o-roid????)

Then there were the robot DJ’s that SUCK…

The Korean bite off Asimo (with the head of Einstein no less) dancing to MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This”…

…and this streetwear bot (camo pants not shown) whose facial expressions were scary as hell…

I don’t think this weekend will be nearly as “futuristic”…
