At least I think it’s part of a patent app. And I think it’s Russian. Can anyone read the writing?

  1. FRAGaLOT says:

    There are some videos released a couple years ago, from Russia, where they built an artificial life support to keep a dogs head alive. It may have been fake but it was really creepy, and maybe this story is related to that?

    That’s right, you are!! You’re a good overlord!

    “Automatic saving of life. general scheme for the appearance of the apparatus.”

    “Modified scheme. a- Dog breed collie. b- dog feeding connection to the automat. c- housing type

  4. FRAGaLOT says:

    yep here’s the video I was talking about.
    Warning it’s very creepy, might be fake.

    Place a decapitated dogs head on a killer robot body. Oh this is not going to end well…..

    Somehow the words Russian and Patent, just don’t go together. Are patents a capitalist idea? Since when does a communist nation have patents? Since when do they honor other nations’ patents? I’m pretty sure that nuclear weapons, and the early Space Shuttle design, were all patented. But this never stopped the Soviets from stealing the plans and reproducing them. And the very idea of a robot dog, when it so much easier just to train hundreds of the real ones. Is absurd! They might as well patent robot chickens to lay artificial eggs. Not that anyone could afford either as a pet or anything. I’m guessing their scientists just need something to brag about, after hearing about the iPad 2.

  9. Glenn E. says:

    All they probably did was cover something robot-like, with “dog fur”, and then called it a robot dog. If they’d had any monkey fur lying about. Guess what kind of robot they would have said they made? I doubt it could be as agile as a real dog. Or as responsive to verbal or visual commands. So I’m thinking they were thinking of developing a “sniffer bot”, that’s as sensitive as a dog’s nose. Or pretty close.

    It’s where the Robobrain from Fallout came from.

    #10 – there was a patent on the atomic bomb granted to Leo Szilard, it was seized and granted to the US government on the grounds that he was an enemy alien.

    It says quite a lot about the military mind that they wanted the patent signed over – to make the atomic bomb legal – and were prepared to be quite ruthless to get it. Groves wanted to intern or deport Slizard unless he agreed.

    Quite where you would deport the inventor of the atom bomb to in 1942 is another question!

    When that thing starts humping your leg, you’r
    gonna know it.

    The Collie is considered the smartest breed of dog. Maybe, that is a reason a collie has been chosen.

    There was research in head transplants and attachments – 2 heads on 1 body, for example -in Russia. Heard once of an American that was so outraged at this research that he patented a machine, process, device or whatever and refused to give permission for its use in order to stop this kind of research.

  15. deowll says:

    The concept is interesting however the life support system that came with the head appears to actually take up less space and you could probably get by with one lung and one kidney because with nothing but a brain to support you just don’t need them.

    The major problem with the entire cyborg idea is how to power them. A fusion power plant the size of a small car battery would seem to be about right.

    #10 Glenn E. – TRIZ is a process to derive at a creative solution. It was invented in the 1940s by a Soviet patent examiner.

    I think that it was used to create packaging for a product in the Wolfgang Puck line.

  17. Judge Jewdy says:

    It would be a bitch taking that for a walk.

  18. Judge Jewdy says:

    Or maybe I should have said it would be tough walking that bitch. 🙂

  19. Doubtful Guest says:

    #10 Glenn E. – Russians were first in space without patents and you will have to live with it.

    Soon one will have to check with patent attorney before he can make a breath without infringing some smartass rights.

  20. Accremonious says:

    Is this similar to Sicily, where the Cosa Nostra put a horses head on your pillow, but in Russia they can only afford a dog’s head?

  21. CrankyGeeksFan says:

    #5 FRAGaLOT – Link to the full version of your film below. Some say it was a recreation. The animal’s head isn’t severed. The animal is revived later.

    The film is entitled “Experiments in the Revival of Organisms”

    It was made in 1940 by Techfilm Studio, Moscow.
