Omg, Run, It’S Hector! Oh Wait, It’S Just Lola

When I was a kid, there wasn’t any parental supervision over what I watched on TV. I once watched a flick called Hotel Hell and couldn’t go into the meat area in the grocery store for six months. I can thank the sci-fi flick Saturn 3 for my unnatural fear of humanoid robots like Lola.

In my defense, Lola does look a lot like Hector, the imposing robot from Saturn 3. LOLA thankfully isn’t a murderous robot, she just likes to leisurely stroll around missing chairs and whatnot as she goes.

I’m not sure why the German designers pegged it as a girl; it has no jubblies or anything. But it does have a couple of HD webcams for eyes, stands 180cm tall, weighs 60kg, and has 25 joints. The video of the thing walking around does creep me out a little, though. Damn you, Hector!
