Yeah I thought it was obvious from the video. I've never seen anything mechanical move like that. It wasn't even a good approximation of a person acting like a robot.

I was on the fence, but the scale doesn't come through in this video. The robot is not human size, it's really big. And they had mechanics on hand constantly managing malfunctions. If I was successfully punked, so be it, however, it was a convincing ruse if, indeed, it was a ruse. -Ross
