[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where we'll be supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]

Word came out yesterday that commercial director Carl Rinsch was set to jump to feature films with 47 Ronin, a samurai revenge film starring Keanu Reeves. I was only passingly familiar with the director's name, but a YouTube search turned up a wide swath of the man's very sci-fi friendly advertising work, and I must say I am in love with his love for robots. Doesn't matter if the product is a sneaker or a beer keg, Rinsch will apparently find some way to involve robots.

You may not know the name, but you'll probably recognize his Evolution of Technology commercial, which showcases centuries of evolution by trading in flesh and blood for metal and motors.

...super-expansive robotic dogs (this was a SciFi channel bump)...



...living cars...



...and elegant glass Rubick's Cube assembly plants.
