Default this is absolutely incredible!

     

a friend of mine emailed me this link after calling me in disbeleif. There is a book about people in england that have been in car accidents and have described robots helping or saving them. Someone even has a vague photo of one of them. Well heres the proof. It's almost too "out there" to believe.

In case anyone cares to see another version of this thread ala slashdot. One of the more insiteful posts is as follows:

" It seems that it is advertising.

A whois lookup on r50rd.co.uk returns the address:

6 darblay street
london
W1V 8DM
GB

A quick search for this address on Google reveals:

Martyn Gould Productions, 6 D'Arblay St, London, W1F 8DN, UK

On a page titled: "Film and Television - Post Production, Commercials"
