X, did you see the show about the firefighting equipment? (part of it was pretty cool)

I dig that nylon sintering prototype machine they used.

I'm sure they get ideas from where-ever they can find them. They definitely have the resources to make just about anything. The CAD design work that you see, doesn't happen overnight. There are people putting some serious manhours into those projects.

Hi Scrupulous

Yes I did.

I didn't like the heads up display or hoses, but it was all right for the little time they worked on it.

The equipment hauler, I like the fact they never tested it & it worked doing the job, but it still needs Improvement, I thought firemen already had something like that they used already :?:

If I owned one of those machines, I don't think it would stop working until it broke down.

That's what I was thinking, someone has to be doing alot of leg work, besides them.

By the way do you know any GOOD Grant writers :?:

Last weeks show the Sleep Pod.

These guys kill me the way they build something & never test it before debuting it & it works :lol:

The only thing that concerned me was the long screws for the washing unit.

Liability Issues if someone hit the screws while they are turning cutting into people :shock:

I was on the fence about that automatic shower...

I don't see why it couldn't be run completely on water pressure.

There's a name for that I think.
Hydro pressure??? Hydrostatic??
Instead of oil, use water.

Pizza Anyone :?:

These guy's have some Serious Resources, Connections & Financial Backing.

I nearly died laughing with the Parachute pizza drop when it landed in between the prototypers.

Police escort shutting down the BAY BRIDGE to test a project & getting the BLIMP to make a Pizza delivery, SIGN ME UP 8) :lol:

I would like to know WHO"S backing these guys :?:

Yeah, I tried to check the credits at the end of the episode, but my TiVo cut it off.

All I know is...and I think I speak for more than half the world population...if I saw a robot coming down the street with a pepperoni and onion pizza, I would lift that thing faster than the robot could say Dominoes. Of course, I would bring it back in one piece, if it had anchovies.

(part of me is kidding about this) :P
