« The Science of Swat | Main | Flight of the Pole Dancer »


Keith L. Dick

hehe, that's is strange for sure...


Wow... This is one of the most bizzare things I've ever seen. And from NASA!? That was just a little money that could have gone to a manned Mars mission, what a waste.

Hmmm, I wouldn't call it "absurd, dangerous, painful, disgusting or otherwise humiliating"... But it's definitely, um, different.

Looks kind of like a post-modern pagan fertility rite!

By far the most awkward and hilarious minute of footage I've seen in a while. Thank god for the space program!


I think this is the result of NASA scientists with too much time on their hands. and a bottle of scotch.


If you actually think about this clip it is really interesting. Its not about the fact that this lady is dancing with the robot. But how she is getting the robot to dance with her. Notice that she is not touching the robot at all. And yet the robot is moving. So further more this peak my interest because that means that a. the robot is pre-programmed to follow a certain movement. b. that the robot is actually being controlled by someone else. or c. The robot is in fact being controlled by the dancer through sensors that it has along its frame.

I am pretty sure though after watching it that is is probally C.


I dont get it?? and its made by NASA it is intersting but they shouldnt was there money on this. i just see a lady dacing with a robot whats the point?


Does the robot seem like a phallic symbol to you?


This is huge. The dancer is mearely symbolic of any number of potential workers performing any number of tasks. The beauty here is that without any awkward joysticks or controls, the person is able to make the robot perform a task. The point is to show the great level of versatility this control has. This is a big leap forward.

yeah yeah

really the funniest "breakdown" here is that all those rocket scintists at NASA didn't once associate their robots appearance to that of a... well, hahaah

Someone mentioned being swathed in mink. When I was a kid, I was in an
elevator in NYC in winter. Two women got in swathed in furs, maybe
mink, maybe chinchilla, maybe sable ... who knows. But it was the
complete package that did it! The coiffures, the makeup, the jewelry
and permeating all ... the PERFUME! Sixty years later I can still
smell it, and it for me it still epitomizes great and beautiful

I've never really thought about my favorite letter but I guess it would be K. It's the first letter of my first born's name and it's fun to make it fancy. :)
WAY cute collection, my favorite so far!!!
Oooooh how cute is this!?! That jumping frog just makes me smile!

My favorite letter is A... just because my name starts with it. :)

And what about women lawyers--is it also risky to wear the wedge to a law firm interview? No one will say that the wedge is a career-killer, like flip-flops, Birkenstocks, or Crocs. But some do think they are a bit clunky, if not funky.

I woke up this morning and the first thing I normally do in the morning is look for newer information for my knowledge, but the article that I read today which was written by you just blew me off. I cannot believe anything ever can happen. I too agree with your conclusion and more and more furor should be raised on such topics.
