PETMAN & AlphaDog

PETMAN Tebowing. It's almost over. Somebody call former Governator Schwarzeneggar and get his opinion on the T-1000 beta. More after the cut.

PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot developed by Boston Dynamics for testing special clothing used by US military personnel. PETMAN balances itself as it walks, squats and does simple calisthenics. PETMAN simulates human physiology by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating inside the clothing to provide realistic test conditions. The AlphaDog Proto is a lab prototype for the Legged Squad Support System, a robot being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA and the US Marine Corps. When fully developed the system will carry 400 lbs of payload on 20-mile missions in rough terrain. The first version of the complete robot will be ready in 2012. This video shows early results from the lab where we are developing the control systems and locomotion platform. This lab prototype is powered remotely. AlphaDog will draw power from an internal combustion engine, which we designed to be 10x quieter than BigDog. The field version of AlphaDog will have a sensor head packed with terrain sensors.

This Guy: @KingRonTheDon

@KingRonTheDon takes to YouTube to talk about the "Struggleberry" aka any RIM Blackberry. He just got the iPhone and now he making videos dogging a phone he had for 6 years though. But he's a good guy. Hella funny. And thanks to him I'm realizing the implication of using a trackball. And we standby his message. Men speaking up for what they believe in.

Gentlemen's Navigation App

Gentlemen's Navigation App

Because jumpoffs are winning too much and it's time to turn the tide! This sweet piece of technology helps the Spitzer's, Edwards's, Woods's, and James's of the world stop slippin'. Or atleast slip more efficiently? * shrugs *

Created by El Diablo himself, the iPhone, is now officially better than Star Trek's Triquarter.

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Confirmed

Confirming the rumors posted the other day, PlanetXbox360 reported that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was shown at Capcom's Captivate event in Hawaii.

There's an embargo on the details, so you won't be seeing screen shots, movies and other things until early next week, but here's the notes they were able to get together.

• Confirmed characters so far are Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm and a few others will return.

• The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 development team said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters this game includes on the disc.

• This will be another 2D fighter — gameplay-wise — but will be something of a cross between the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Street Fighter 4.

• The rumored release date is late 2010 or early 2011 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, no plans right now for other systems.

• The game will run in 1080p resolution.

• It will be a disc-based release.

• Apparently the game will have unlockables again.

• Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be playable at this year's E3 which is held on June 15 - 17th.
