I found this video while searching the net. It is done in CG, anybody who is a fan of Anime like Patlabor will like this and everyone else who is afraid of a HK terminator future might be disturbed.

Sure the Honda Asimo can play the trumpet, but can he fire a galil. :D Warning its about 16mb.

That robot does look sort of like a miniature Ingram Patlabor.

And from somewhere I hear a Japanese girl screaming "Hah! That ugly thing doesn't look anything like my Alphonse!" ^_^

That's actually an R4, a South African license-manufactured copy of the Galil. I know that company, too - they make some good stuff. Interesting to see the background shots in that advertisement: I recognized many of the locations.

Thanks for the correction Preacherman. I knew it was probably the South African version, but at the time I posted it I was too lazy to look it up.

:scrutiny: Is that a real RoboCop? Looks like a human in mock up except for the neck views.

Depending on the view it appears to be a mix of robotic modelwork, a guy in a suit and CGI.

He looks like Briarios from the Appleseed manga...
