Woaaaaahhhhh.. Never seen that before. I got kind of a calm and fuzzy feeling inside by watchin them. Cool that they are fully autonomus.

Very cool. But are they for absolute real?

Just being a bit anal maybe, but around 44s, I expect to see the reflection of at least one in the floor, but it ain't there ..... ??

Angle might be debateable so you wouldn't see it, but I just felt that one them, the lower one, you would see a reflection.

Oh .... it was me :D

Had I bothered to watch it to the end, I'd have seen reflections ..... :D

In that case, cooler than a cool thing in an ice box.

Not in real life, but I did see some videos some time ago. Very cool stuff indeed.

Cheers,
