It’s almost getting to the point where all of my favorite Internet videos involve robots.

    In the middle of the video, it zooms out. There is a supercomputer running the robot. So the answer to your question is no, it’s not staged or fake. Although, it is a commercial.

    I wish that it would show the video regular, like, with no special effects or camera tricks. Just raw video.
