damg writes "Anybots, which is three guys led by Trevor Blackwell, has developed the first robot that walks like we do, by dynamically balancing itself rather than being pre-programmed for walking like Asimo. The video shows the robot walking and being pushed by another 'bully' robot to demonstrate that it can't easily be pushed over."

+ - The $600 Stand-alone Blue-Ray Player

Submitted by Dr. Eggman
Dr. Eggman (932300) writes "PCWorld brings us news of a cheaper stand-alone Blu-Ray Player Sony will introduce this summer. Costing $600, the player will be a significant price reduction over the $1000 BDP-S1 Sony introduced just ahead of Christmas. The $600 player is designed with the same features as the S1, but at a price to compete with the $500 Toshiba HD DVD player. While it was originally speculated that the PS3's Blu-Ray player would essentially serve the role of the cheap Blu-Ray player, this new announcement raises questions about the PS3's place in the HD Format battle. Sony has managed to pull out a strange new twist in the Home Entertainment War, but will it pay off?"
