Prototype This is a must see show for Inventors that Love to Invent.

I found it on the Discovery Channel in my neck of the country.

It's about a team of Inventors that live in San Francisco, California that are presented with different challenges.

The team must complete the challenge within two (2) weeks.

The first episode I saw was about the team of Inventors designing & building a Virtual Interactive Boxing Robot Video Game.

Check it out.

I watched parts of that last night. It was pretty cool. The boxers had to slow down their punches so the robot's could keep up. I didn't realize they were doing it to actually get the inventions out to the public.

What I got a kick out of was them picking Virtual Interactive Boxing Robots which makes the perfect next step in the Robot Android & Video Game Evolution Matrix.

More like, I Kick Your Ass Robot. :D

Imagine how it would look if they were able to stand on their own like the ASIMO robot or some of those other robots that can balance themselves.

Grass-hopper, that's what I'm talkin about.

Those guys took the next step with Robot's & Video games all in one move.

This is what they said at the end of the show; with more time & money these Inventors will be able to do alot more with the Boxing Robot's capabilities.

The next Evolutionary step with Robot's would be to make them have Dance moves.

Dancing with the Impersonating Terminator contest :roll: :?:

What will they think of next :?:

What do you think will be the next step in the Robot Evolution :?:

OMG!

Did anyone see that episode of Prototype This last night??? (about the waterslide simulator) That was one of the most amazing prototyping hoe-downs I have ever witnessed.

I mean, I was impressed by how much they got done. But, the whole time I kept wondering if every single one of them was hitting the crackpipe way too hard...

I Love this show.

What I love about this show is all of the Technical Knowledge & Information these guy's are aware of & how they go about Interfacing it all together.

One question I have, Is do they really know all this stuff or do they have people doing R&D for them, giving them the Information for the show.

BSG, Don't take this the wrong way, but you remind me of Terry 8)

He is the Hero of the show, He does all the hard work & he puts his heart into it :lol:

If I ever win the Lottery, besides paying for a house, getting my Invention on the market, I would want to start an OPEN R&D Think Tank working on Public & Personal Ideas/Products bringing them to the marketplace.

I would Love to be apart of this program being Involved with creating Inventions having all the financial resources available to do what it takes to create an Invention :idea:
