...resistance is futile

hi there...lets assimilate...but we dance 1st
...that's me... Jamal ni kena kursus ambik foto banyak2 lagi ni

Resistance is futile...that is d often quoted line from d Trekkie movie featuring d feasome Borgs n their desire to 'assimilate'. N there have been many more Hollywood outakes n their European counterparts as well putting north d idea that d machines will one day trumped over d humans.

But looking at d 10th IRO [International Robot Olympiad] held for 3 days at our Cultural Activity Center, it seems that d kids were really enjoying themselves manipulating d robot in various shapes n sizes within their grasps. I took a peek there today n were impressed to see young local participants n those coming from as far as China n Korea pitting their skills against each other.

these mini-robot from Korea performed a dance synchronously n later break up to perform its own routine...awesome

d participants at d Olympiad...with various challenges that they must overcome. As u can see these robots were quite fast. BTW...if u go there, no flash photography allowed..nanti robot tu sakit mata!

n this robot [not those seating laa...] is from our neighbor...UniKL BMI

d Segway Personal Transporter was on display too...n I managed to to handle gak pakai benda ni...something new to me after seeing it used by d police guy in Roma Termini n one of d A1 cameramen marked d official launch of d latest Honda City in our Tanah went there to take a peek as well. U can see d robotic characteristic in this City too...d front mimicked d characters from 'Transformers'... This is d test-drive unit...n d street pothole test starts even within d dealer's compound...hihi

this latest piece of metal from Honda is miles better looking than d so called Vios 'Dugong' from Toyota...I m sure we'll see a lot of it on local roads soon...there's a waiting period of 3 months now as d dealers have been taking orders quite some time ago

...n speaking of metal...I m in d process of putting some on my molar...went here last Monday for a root canal after my masalah gigi all last week...ouch! Even now I can still hear d sound of d drill lingering in my ears...n d follow-up session is next week...double ouch!!
