Syber, THAT is something I want! And considering what it is, the price tag is REALLY low, I think. I priced out the printer, the service plan they offer, and several spools of material, and it comes to less than $3,000.00USD, which is great! (of course, that's about 50% more than I've ever paid for a CAR, but... ) :)

The price is not bad at all for the quality that it produces. For that price range, I think it one of the better ones out there.

O' the things I could build with one of those :)

What a thing that is, can you Brit boys imagine what the Authorities, over here, would do if you were spotted driving that down the road, they would have a baby on the spot. :o

Nice find, gotta' have one just for the joy of the above alone.  :P
It WILL be fine !...

Snowcrash

6000 BB's per min. You'll have someone's eye out with that.  ;D

I want 10, with paintball guns and a novel leisure bussiness idea.

Good find.

Yeah, I'be ALL OVER that "smile shot". And I'm with Snowy. Leave off the aquafina launcher, and mount a paintball gun instead,  :sign-evil-laugh: :driving: :flag:

Diesel, That could a sweet moment that could turn sour real fast.

Snowcrash I like the way you think, 10 of those would make a great paintball battle  ;D
I'm sure a business like that could recuperate the price of 10 of those + repairs in the first or second year.

I agree Dave with Dave, love the smile shot  ;)

Yeah I know Syber but what a lark.  :LOL:

Actually, Snowy you are quite right, one hell of a Paint Balling experience. We could sell that all day, that would do nicely to finance our other venture with a Space Shuttle. Good thought.  :P
It WILL be fine !...

Funny...at 2:15 the narrator says, "It is gasoline fueled and runs on a diesel engine."

OK...WHICH IS IT? GAS or DIESEL? Big difference!

I think they meant that it is basically a diesel driven engine.

I was expecting a bipedal, walking mechanoid kind of like in the Martix! Now that would have been cool!!

sybershot

Art they do have a walking mecha, but it is not for sale :(

If I remember correctly in the link above the video there website said diesel.

You know you'd love to have one of these. Imagine the overhead views of the big game (for free) or the Swimming pool or the naturalist park  :o ...I mean...the nature trails ;D and tons more! Fly high!!

One can get them online at most retailers but usually Amazon has great prices and great shipping in my experience.
Yeah...they're around 279 quid which includes camera, indoor and outdoor shells and more. Check it out!!

Syber,

Please re-read my posting. I was poking fun at the video when at 2:15 seconds it stated that it was
gasoline fueled and running on a diesel engine. Clearly, it was a diesel engine but the statement is
misleading. A normal engine is usually either one or the other and shouldn't be used in the same context
or sentence.

DaveMorton

@10KM/Hr (~6 3/4MPH), it would make for a rather easy target, but oh my God, would those be fun to paintball in! :D

The Mech Robot looks really unstable. And it doesn't walk; a hybrid of wheels and legs.

I rekon a 5 year old could push it over.

Sorry Art,
I read your post quickly, I though you where an inquiring mind that did not know which one it was because of the narrators mess-up  :innocent:

Snowcrash, yea that second mecha suit does not look stable at all.

I would much rather have the first suit, Though I would find a way to make it faster :)


As far as the ar drone goes, The product is very cool. Only issue I see is that they limit the controller to apple products. If and or once they allow android or windows devices to control it, I then think it would a better product.
