…and more specifically, why they inspired me for this storyline.

Dualis robot

This article is a year old, but it’s about a Robot/Power Suit that Nissan built. Yes, that’s right. A Power Suit. Like, Gundam-style robot you get inside and do all sorts of craziness in.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe Ford is making any giant robots.

Granted, I’m not sure the thing moves like in those marketing videos (if at all), but the fact that they’ve designed & built it at all AND had it standing next to their cars at a show, even IF the best it can really do is wave it’s hand? That’s awesome.

Japan wins. Seriously.

PS : Asimov will always be my favorite Robot though. Not quite as sexy, but he’s more of a “cute and functional” type. Doesn’t hurt that he looks like a little spaceman either.
