AUTOWAY Tires has another…message.
Ahh yes, AUTOWAY. Some might remember their last uhhh, intriguing marketing campaign that we covered last December. Jump through and have a look. Interesting way to sell - of all things - car tires.

“Suddenly Explode/Pop!”

You can probably see where this video’s going. It begins with what appears to be a teenage girl, the star of AUTOWAY’s new marketing campaign (see the image below, too), droning on about teenage girl stuff.

So, how does the (in)famous AUTOWAY bring this one back to reminding us about the importance of tires?
You’ll see.

Honda bills ASIMO as the world's most advanced humanoid robot, and taken as a whole, it’s probably accurate to say. But an American robot is catching up, and unless Honda’s got some new tricks (ASIMO X?), ATLAS is going to shove ASIMO aside and take his cookies.

Murata Manufacturing recently unveiled a team of 10 robots called the Murata Cheerleaders, which dance in formation while balancing on top of balls.

The Murata Cheerleaders are Murata’s fourth generation of robots, following the bicycle-riding MURATA BOY in 1991, the second MURATA BOY in 2005, and the unicycle-riding MURATA GIRL in 2008. All of these robots incorporate Murata’s proprietary core technology.
