    Looks faked, but if true those guys with the robot have a lot of faith in the technology, standing in front of a machine armed with a pistol.

      One trusts a machine or an animal at ones own peril!

    Yeah – is this trickery?
    I couldn’t/wouldn’t put my faith in technology to this degree.

    It’s amazing what can be done with C.G.I. and Alita (Battle Angel) was much better looking.

    It is very good trickery. Here is a link to the story behind it.

    https://www.ammoland.com/2019/10/robot-gunslinger-by-bosstown-dynamics-fools-many/

    The article includes a video of how they did the CGI. The first half is self indulgent – the second half shows how much skill and effort was required to achieve such a high standard.

    When I watched the video I assumed that the robot was computer generated but as the clip progressed I found myself getting sucked in by how realistic it appeared. The final gunshot scene was the weak link. The robot fired a 50 calibre rifle. In real life the retort would have been much louder and the recoil would have knocked the robot on his arse.

    I’d score it a 9 out of 10.

    A “woman” after my own heart. Does anyone have her number?

      My dear Mercy. The robot is affectionately named Angela. Perhaps you didn’t know that?

        My dear Wallace, I asked for her number not her name. I need a cleaner and thought she would be perfect. You so kindly provided her name, perhaps you can supply her number since you are on a first name basis (lucky you).
