the baby is angry

Giant robot babies that shoot fire?  Check.  Have I said recently that Japan is awesome?

Also, Honda has created some technology to control Asimo with your mind.  They use EEG, but the extra-cool bit of technology that they use is near-infrared spectroscopy which measures cerebral bloodflow.  This allows you to utilize to separate streams of information from the brain coming on different time-scales.  Apparently, Honda’s pretty lucky to be able to do this; they don’t have near-infrared spectroscopy available for scientific lab use yet.
