Random Stuff
I couldn't find a related topic, and didn't see this as being significant enough to warrant its own topic... so am creating this one for Random (clean) Stuff, that can be for things found online or in the real world, that can be shared with everyone publicly.

I saw this on one of the Chinese News programs on SBS the other day, so looked up youtube to see if it was on there... and it was. :)

100 dancing robots that are independently activated, so the synchronisation is slightly off like a group of humans.
I did a search for some details, and it is called Robi (pronounced Robby), and is apparently interactive with electronic devices, with potential to do anything a smart-device can do around the house. A video clip here of the company CEO talking about it.

Those robots have been advertised on the TV here lately. You can build your own through buying the magazine and getting parts dealy. I wonder how long it will take. Issue 1 is only 999Yen!!

Looks pretty awesome though! I want one (for 999yen!) :D

Pepsi Max is good for pouring into drinking devices (like cups or glasses), as it has a lot more gas fortified in it than other soft-drinks... but not good to drink straight from a bottle (because of all that gas it releases as you drink it).

Coke Zero was only created to combat the rising threat of Pepsi Max against Coke's monopoly of the Cola market in this country. Pepsi was insignificant in our Country before they created "Max" (it does better as a brand in America though)... and even still, the regular Pepsi variety hasn't really benefited from Max's success. If it wasn't for Pizza Hut and KFC exclusively stocking Pepsi brands, it probably would have disappeared as a product long before Max was created to save the brand.

And now, a couple months ago both Coles and Woolies introduced a "Zero" generic brand cola despite already having a "diet" variety that is basically the same thing, especially when it comes to generic branded softdrink. :rolleyes:

I know way too much about junkfood... :o

Yes. Yes you do. Have you ever considered working in the industry? Putting all that knowledge to good (profitable) use?

Coke is releasing a New variety this year that is the same as Pepsi Next.
