    Blade runner is a perfectly reputable profession, just avoid questions about mothers.

    As long as we never have to have this conversation with the sparring bot I'm down:

    Holden: You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down...
    Leon: What one?
    Holden: What?
    Leon: What desert?
    Holden: It doesn't make any difference what desert, it's completely hypothetical.
    Leon: But, how come I'd be there?
    Holden: Maybe you're fed up. Maybe you want to be by yourself. Who knows? You look down and see a tortoise, Leon. It's crawling toward you...
    Leon: Tortoise? What's that?
    Holden: [irritated by Leon's interruptions] You know what a turtle is?
    Leon: Of course!
    Holden: Same thing.
    Leon: I've never seen a turtle... But I understand what you mean.
    Holden: You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back, Leon.
    Leon: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden? Or do they write 'em down for you?
    Holden: The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.
    Leon: [angry at the suggestion] What do you mean, I'm not helping?
    Holden: I mean: you're not helping! Why is that, Leon?
    [Leon has become visibly shaken]
    Holden: They're just questions, Leon. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response... Shall we continue?

    I don't turn the turtle over because I want all shelled creatures to die.

    I think this is a great idea, not such a great product. although its the first fighting robot i have seen, someone is bound to make something better. or the guy who made it should improve it. but in its current state it is not worth the money

    This is the 2009 Sparbot built at Massey University, New Zealand.

    Pretty clunky looking, but you can see how fast these types of bots are progressing in the lab. The Punching Pro is by comparison way ahead of this thing.
