@ Brian, did you happen to follow any of the other related videos linked from that one? The disappearing swimming pool is neat, but check out the 'Roxxxy robo-inflata-mate' :/ no further comment

Seems they rearrange the embedded/related links. Try the one above (note that this might fit into the "scariest" category!) or google for "Roxxxy robot"
