Sir Kitt, a TV Presentor Robolution

This cool Humanoid was built by builder Orac to interview guests at a TV studio in the UK. Sadly it does not look like the recorded segment will air, replacing it with genuine human. Orac commented that he hopes to “enjoy the fruits of [his] labour” by finding some other job for his little friend! It will be interesting to see where Sir Kitt shows up next!

Yazoo Anyone?

Yazoo Strawberry Drink 

Uh, I prefer “Gago”.

About 1 in 15 phone booths in the South East side of London have this ad for “Yazoo”, a strawberry smoothie drink, on the side.

Watch the Step or Mind the Step? (Video)

While in England, I noticed that their signs read “Mind The Step”, “Mind The Gap”, “Mind Your Head” etc.  Over here in the USA they read “Watch the Step”, etc.

So with this “Minding” and “Watching“, I decided to make a funny video, about this topic for you to watch.

No robots where harmed in the making of the above film, Mind you.

G’Day in the UK! Day 2

Day 2

The second day I went on the London Eye.

A little over half way around, I looked down at the ground and saw a Star Wars character.

Upclose, after ‘landing’.

A both for Star Wars, was close by.

If you are the guy in this picture, I’m very sorry, ‘nough said.

I took this picture of “Big Ben”, the big clock tower in the middle, right outside of the London Eye.

Then I went to the British Library, where there was a cool exibit with medieval illuminated books with gold writing and pictures.

At the British Museum, I saw the Rosetta Stone.

G’Day in the UK! Day 1

Some of you may have known that I was in England from May 29 to June 12, to see the gardens, the castles, and take some pictures of robots. I had a GREAT time. The food was good too. I took a lot of pictures, and some videos, so check them out.

Day 1

 

The trip really started on the plane, when I found three stow-aways, named “Zam”, “Thorg”, and “Ogo”, in my carry on bag.

 

At The Tower Of London, I saw the crowns.

Day two, coming soon.
