Not Quite A Transformer

This group also happen to be robots in disguise...as a legitimate popular toy line.

That being said, the "Framstorners" are committed to distinguishing themselves from those other more well-known Bots with a new film directed by Michael Bay starring Shia LaBeouf and his trusty yellow form-changing robot car creatively known as "Sportscar."

Roomba Assassin

Roomba Assassin

"There has to be more to Roomba's life than going around this house sucking-up dust bunnies.

Roomba keeps seeing the programmed pattern in Roomba's head over and over again. Roomba must be free from the pattern.

The conclusion is logical: Roomba's owner must be terminated."

Cheetah Robot Running On A Treadmill

Posted September 6, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

A group of engineers at Boston Dynamics, funded by your tax dollars from DARPA must have concluded that real cheetahs have lost all their swagger and need to be replaced with a more mechanical, badass version. (Well, duh!)

Now, they have created this running robotic face-ripper which can reach speeds of up to 28.3 mph, which, as they point out, is about .5 mph faster than Olympic runner, Usain Bolt.

Either U.S. defense spending is taking a zoological route, or Skynet just got a new weapon in its search for John Connor.

Robot Swagger

The true motivation for the advancement of robotic technology has been revealed!! They just want to strut down the street like John Travolta!

For more viral videos, watch Around the Net on Attack of the Show every weeknight at 7/6c!

Off the back of accomplishing landing friggin' robots on friggin' Mars, the folks at Satire decided to commemorate NASA's latest accomplishment...with sexiness and the self-awareness to sing about it.

Now, LMFAO's ubiquitous hit, "Sexy and I Know It" becomes the platform for these randy rocket scientists to show the world that they don't just spend their days pushing buttons near complex blinking lights and counting stuff down.

Rock those pocket calculators (that you still have for some reason in a smartphone world) and gyrate at your thankless jobs, nerds!

The sinister wishes of Dr. Evil and all other world-takeover-enthusiasts may have finally come true. (Well, they're not sharks, but it still beats mutant sea bass.)

...Unless you can think of another good reason for the invention of robot fish with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads.

Maybe sport for robot fisherman?

Robot Vs. Crawfish

Posted July 24, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This imaginary gun-toting toy robot's epic showdown with this crushing crustacean didn't go so well for the fight's mechanical participant.

Of course, ending up boiled in a pot before some caijun sticks his mouth on your ass and sucks out your vital organs isn't exactly roses and Happy Meals, either.

Robocop Remake Releases Viral Teaser

The upcoming remake of Robocop just released its first bit of teaser footage in the form of a viral video spotlighting the robotic military hardware of OmniCorp.

The video introduces us to a futuristic world where corporate-owned flying drones patrol cities, and the iconic walking tank-killer, ED-209 walks the streets. However, we are given some brief glimpses of a new streamlined (and CGI) Robocop, introduced as the RC-2000, "where human resources meets robotic engineering."

Thank yourself for your cooperation and check it out below!

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Teaser Trailer

The end of the Twilight movie saga is nigh; a point that seems especially true with the new teaser trailer for the gloomy romance's (Bella) swan song, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

The brooding, moody human, Bella finally got what she wanted: To be a brooding, moody vampire. Unfortunately the Vampire Child Protective Services are coming to take her ridiculously-fast-growing baby away to a foster home. (And by "foster home," I mean killing it with violence.)

So, proud vampire papa, Edward is rallying the entire community of fit and photogenic monsters to fight alongside him to protect the hybrid baby and prove that it deserves to live.

The epic finale goes down in theaters on November 16.

Check out the trailer below to see pretty much everything I described.
