If you get chills or the hair on your back stands up, it’s probably normal.

I'm probably not normal ... kinda been told that a few times already though! haha!

Impressive stuff. When I first saw the robo-deer thingy I was even more impressed. I guess this is just a natural progression from there.

Maybe I can find that vid ...

Perhaps willful ignorance and self deception are normal. Just because something is "normal" doesn't mean it is good and should continue into the future.

I certainly feel no chills seeing this video clip. So people managed to developed some software to immitate human gymnastic capabilities. Big deal! I think it is kinda cool. Good job.

Indeed.

Yeah. My reaction was similar to yours. But if you look at the comments section, you get the impression that we're (unfortunately) not the norm.

He he!

Impressive, but I will always prefer watching a 20 year old woman with superb muscle tone make those sorts of gymnastic moves. (my software hasn't been updated for several million years)
