Reminds me of the great "Octopus vs. Shark" video that circulated a few years ago. Behold:
Mantis Shrimp Death Match via Japan Probe (last video). Octopus vs. Shark on Youtube.
"kimberly sent in this sweet maniac mansion cross stitch. Before you get up in arms, she knows that the green tentacle played the drums…she just happens to know that the green tentacle is actually proficient in many instruments. and, to back her up, I happen to know that he is quite a singer…"

If you ever wondered what the colorful creations born of EA's Spore gaming universe might look like in real-life robotic form, you need look no further than Yoichiro Kawaguchi's prototype robots designed to mimic the organic forms found in nature.
Far different from the geometrically sterile robots we're used to, Kawaguchi's robots are meant to function on a primitive/intuitive level, with biomimetic actuators like tentacles and claws used to move the robots through the real world. The current models are just the beginning, Kawaguchi's team hopes to have fully functional versions of these robots working in about two years.

It's a good ad, but the kicker comes at the end, when Baldwin reveals his SECRET ALIEN TENTACLES. I'm so thrilled.
