Nissan SUV gets robot treatment

Bloody great big robots seem to go hand in hand with car commercials; of course there was the dancing, ice-skating Citroen C4 ads, and now Nissan in Japan are getting in on the action with their "Powered Suit" concept, a campaign to push the otherwise bland DUALIS SUV.

The good thing, though, is that they've constructed a great big robot suit to take to trade events and auto shows.  Now while I'm sure it doesn't move anywhere near as well as the CGI robot in the commercials does, an eleven-foot tall mech is still pretty damn cool.

The car?  Meh, let's not go there.
