Great find, Jonny,

You have an evil streak in you evidenced by your vision of future classroom antics. :roll: I admire that in a person. :twisted:

But I laugh because even after destroying two pedestals with its final shot, the robot still has the effrontery to take a bow. [Of course, "effrontery" shows a western cultural bias. I have lived in Korea, so I understand what it is doing in their terms also.]

Any one know if the robot acquired those three targets through sensors? Or could it have simply been programmed to shoot at targets prepositioned in three dimensional space from its known starting orientation? Either way seems very impressive to me.

That was simply doing a pan and tilt under remote control.
