The NS-5: What will you do with yours?

http://www.irobotnow.com/index.php

Introducing the world's first fully automated domestic assistant.

Okay, is this some kind of funny joke? See website for awesome rock 'n roll
intro. followed by the eerie but dramatic "shock and awe" type soundtrack.

hmmm... "Absolute fail-safe"; "environmentally safe"; "brain is the 'heart'..."; "Free OS updates"; "servicing via on-site house call";"WORLD'S MOST COMPREHENSIVE RECORD OF HUMAN HISTORY".

This has to be a joke. I guess we will find out on July 16th.

HA, I bet that is when the movie came out and the site is just a promotion. Ha, boy is my face red!

It was a great movie. But I'd take an NS-4 over an NS-5 any day.

...but aside from all that, this ad has to be one of the sweetest, most beautifully designed, sensual things.... I am so completely besotted by this most ethereal of things, the beautifully done creative--exquisite--electronic advertisment (and of course it's ultimately advertising the most material and physical of things--the servant) but I adore its purely eloctronic/digital rendering. Sometimes you have to wonder if the digital image is purely about image, purely about the perfection that it encompasses. Whether these robots are real seems almost beside the point, the image itself is so perfect.

There is something so weird about that, the shiny image of mechanical perfection. It reminds me of the New Citroën pictures. Actually, it reminds me of anything that is trying to appear "futuristic", like the new Ford Focus. Why is the future so shiny, round and cornerless, and all I want to do is collect old rusty tobacco tins – clearly romanticizing the dull past?
