Um...you realize that's not the robot from the show, right?
I think they were based off this robot from the same company.
Yep--it's just showing what's possible, in real life.
Right. But not what they showed on the show, which was a really slow, clumsy robot.
It seemed kind of similar to me to the dog robot above. But then, the shots of the robots on the show were fast and fleeting and a bit shadowy (I assume CGI, and not real robots), and the dog robot above is somewhat engraved in the mind.
I thought the dogs were kind of lame. Especially they way they're leading us with Piper...
If she is some type of cyborg or android, I would think dogs would be a lot easier to do than little girls. And something they'd be trying to do before attempting a little girl.
The robots were slow while they were searching but once they started running for the door the pace certainly picked up. i am confident the robots were CGI, that would have blown their budget to rent real robot dogs from a robotics company
I was thinking they stole the robot dogs from that episode of Black Mirror. Not the actual robot dogs but the concept for them. Perhaps the girl is the precursor to The Terminator. If she says "Ahll be back!" I'm outta here.
I think it would have been more interesting, and applicable to the plot, to have them look like REAL dobermans (or whatever). Maybe with a slight, but noticeable difference. Glowing eyes or something? And then have one get damaged in their escape, making it obvious it's not a real dog.
Speaking of the robot dogs, I liked that this would absolutely freak out intruders. Then when the one dog came through the door and tipped over on its side, that threw me off, as it stopped but was still perfectly balanced on four legs. There was no reason to tip over onto its side. FAKE!!
It was done for dramatic effect and also to emphasize that the dog had been disabled. If it just stopped dead in its tracks it would leave the viewer wondering what happened. This way it was pretty clear that the danger had been squelched.
I understood that. I'm just saying that they could have made sparks shoot out to indicate it had blown a circuit and was disabled, but falling over without even making one or two of the legs collapse to cause the fall was ridiculous. It was just a nitpick ... I am otherwise enjoying this show a lot. And I still liked the concept of robot security dogs. Next time they break in they could bring along a nice bowl of hydraulic fluid and some "Nuts & Bolts" to distract the robot dogs ...
Except that they were incredibly ineffective...
The Oct 15 episode. Didn't anyone else notice a little judder or judder on the picture? Hopefully it was an ABC issue and not the beginning of the end for my hard drive.
No judder on my end via Directv in So. Cal.
Most things I record from KABC on my TiVo have some judder; it has been that way for some time. (I haven't noticed this artifact on any other channel.) Except for "Jeopardy", I usually wait for 3AM to watch them on Hulu instead in judderless 1080p.
i actually had to look up the word judder...
(allison tolman is great, the primary reason i'm still watching)
Anyone watching this also watch Mr. Robot?
Was the computer specialist/hacker the same actress who plays the taxidermist on Robot? I watch the 2 shows back to back and thought what an odd coincidence if it is...
I watch both, and yeah, I was surprised to see her in both, but very different roles.
