Moon Publicity Strives to Plaster Moon With Ads

This idea is wrong in so many ways. Moon Publicity wants to utilize robots to create ridges in lunar dust on the moon and then use Shadow Shaping technology to form logos, domain names or other advertising. Claiming to have a patent on this technology, the company has gone as far as selecting areas for prospective buyers to choose from. Their spiel reeks of strange, anti-environmental greed, don't you think?

"Creating images on the Moon provides a commercial incentive for turbo charging space travel technology. Shadows are only the beginning. These advancements will eventually place robots on other worlds building space stations and planting crops."

Chi-Chi's Robot Commercial

As much as we dig the Denny's Grand Slamwich commercials, we have to hand it to Chi-Chi's for this one. What else can we say but "Robot Snob want chicken and Chi-Chi's."

Denny's Grand Slamwich Commercial

What to say about a majorly chained restaurant whose main claim to fame is offering up the greasiest, most carb-laden food on the planet? Only that Denny's new Grand Slamwich (1,320 calories, 89 grams of fat) commercials are awesome, dude!

G-shock Robots Celebrate Casio Anniversary

In order to promote their 25th anniversary, Casio came up with G-shock Robots. Designed by Shiro Nakano, they seem to appear at various retailers in Japan. We expect that if enough bot-freaks pay attention and respond, we will see more of them in the States in commercials and maybe even real-life models.

FailureBot Walks the Line

Micah Carrick is not your average robotician (is that a real word?) He has now created the 5th generation of his FailureBot, a project that involves a "build a line" robot. After studying datasheets and searching through parts, he came up with the FB on a limited budget and from scratch. Kudos to him and his brainwaves. Hit his site and get extensive details.

Chevy Malibu Commercial Features Waldos

We remember reading sci-fi by Heinlein, Asimov, and others in the 70's that gave us our first taste of Waldos (robotic arms.) This commercial brings the idea to fruition. It is for the Chevy Malibu and features the music "Her Morning Elegance" by Oren Lavie. Rather nifty, don't you think?

Craftsman Father's Day Commercial


Since Dad's day is coming up, we wanted to share our fave commercial so far. Craftsman puts out some great tools anyway, and now we give them props and all our business this year. If the tune in the background sounds familiar, it is the theme song to the late 60's/early 70's show "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" that starred Bill Bixby, written and sung by Harry Nilsson.
