“I Seriously Tried To Win, And Now I Feel Ashamed”
(Warning: some phallus-like objects present in the video)
The Japanese are a wonderfully weird bunch. It can be difficult to find tentacle-free videos, but this is one of the few instances where they’re not being creepy while maintaining a ludicrous level of fun. I mean, after a while a penis-robot showed up, but they were really good about not having anything too weird for the rest of the video. You can’t fault them for having a single phallus-bot; they’re Japanese for poop’s sake. You’ve got to give them one chance to get really out there or things will start to get seriously strange. That’s when the schoolgirls in French maid outfits start to appear. I’m not complaining about that part, it’s everything that happens after they show up that bothers me. I’ve seen enough Japanese videos to know what happens.
If only robotics classes and science fairs were as engaging, fun, and interesting as this. Not caring, completely half-assing all the work, and getting wasted makes everything better, but it noticeably improves robotics. Now you don’t have to pretend to like somebody’s robot that looks like crap and doesn’t do anything. Everyone can celebrate their collective crappiness without getting too caught up in giving out medals for trying, because we can safely say that no one tried.
