More Viral - Full Skynet Research Website Launched
by Alex Billington

A couple of weeks ago, we announced that a Skynet Research website (for the upcoming Terminator Salvation) had popped up and was accepting e-mail addresses to sign up for more information. The official site has now fully launched and can be seen at: SkynetResearch.com. Not only does it have some more information, but there is an outreach program that looks like it has a lot of viral potential with user interaction and so on. Users can sign up to beta test various Skynet robots or design robots and so on. I might be missing something as well, so of course, let us know if you find anything else interesting!
Click on the Mobile Aerial Ground Support (MAGS) information panel above to be taken over to the full Skynet Research website. There are a couple of other cool robot designs that you can find under the "Products" section on the site. There is also a really cool video found under "Outreach" that was up on YouTube. It shows some Japanese girl playing with her new Skynet Research Enhancement Module Model 101 robot. It's kind of scary, because I have a feeling that little bugger is going to turn into some killing machine when Skynet activates all of its robots! We'll let you know if we hear any more Skynet updates.

It is VERY creepy. I'm not sure how most of the consumer interaction will work, but forms begging personal information are all over.

I wonder what will happen if I do fill one of the 101 Request forms in? MAGS is awesome but his details are classified, cool.

So are all movies now doing viral marketing?

All movies that want to add depth will use viral marketing.

Whatever. Viral marketing is over rated. In depth? Please A movie like Planet 51, sure. This? Everyone knows why Skynet is. It's old. We've been to Universal, sat in the line and watched some decent Skynet commercials. I can't even stand the Watchmen's viral marketing and I get a hard on every time I see a trailer. It's fun but I could do without.

Skynet should consider developing an angry "Oooooh Gooood!" Christian Bale model for their Terminator line. Humanity would be defeated and brought sobbing to its knees in no time.

The MAGS robot shown looks very similar to BigDog found here: http://www.bostondynamics.com/content/sec.php?section=BigDog
