KITT among WIRED Magazine's "50 Best Robots Ever"

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.01/robots.html Near the bottom at #48, right before HAL 9000. (but we all know he's #1 in our books, right? ) The smooth-talking, self-driving muscle car from the early '80s TV drama Knight Rider was so cool, it even upstaged David Hasselhoff. The success of th...

Eh, I'm used to it. Knight Rider/Hasselhoff is one of those shows/celebrities that's "trendy" to make fun of.

Surprisingly good Michael and KITT impersonations. But would it really qualify as a "gay" relationship, as KITT is technically just a computer?

Either way, I'm just thankful that Michael didn't, er... "utilize" either of KITT's tailpipes. :shock:

This is a bit unusual for DARPA. Can't wait till March 13!

Okay guys...while the Cien is a very nice-looking car, I agree that it isn't suited to being a reincarnation of KITT. But this wasn't intended to be a "this should be the next KITT" kind of topic. I was mainly pointing out the fact that IGN mentioned Knight Rider in regards to the Cien and how on th...

On a related note, I can't believe a network that calls themselves "Sci-Fi" would play movies like The Flintstones and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. :roll:

The Cadillac Cien-Knight Rider Connection

I was browsing IGN's Cars Channel recently, reading an article on Cadillac's new 100th-Anniversary Cien prototype: http://carsmedia.ign.com/cars/image/002_Cien_Ext.jpg A passage from page 2 of the article caught my fancy: Electronically controlled air inlets and outlets are integrated into the Cien'...

Ha! Spitting and urinating into KITT's fuel tank...not too flattering for him, I'm sure.

OK, now here's a situation I've pondered myself: What would happen if KITT was somehow flipped over onto his roof (which seems likely at some point considering all the "acrobatics" he performed)?

Nope, in fact I like it better that way! I was thinking of doing the same thing, but decided against it since it's very similar to my fourth entry, and I'm running out of space on my measley 1MB image hoster anyway. >:p
