It's going to be a brew and repeat kind of day. Thankfully, this coffee dispenser hasn't become self aware enough to recognize my reusable "cafe pod". Me: 1
Boston Dynamics’ ATLAS Robot can now performs incredible jumps and backflips! Love how they programmed the “arms-up” celebration and how the legs quivered while standing up. This is amazing/scary!
The Agile Anthropomorphic Robot "Atlas" is a 6-foot (183 cm) bipedal humanoid #robot , based on #BostonDynamics ' earlier PETMAN humanoid robot, and designed for a variety of search and rescue tasks.
Atlas is a high mobility, #humanoid robot designed to negotiate outdoor, rough terrain. #Atlas can walk bipedally leaving the upper limbs free to lift, carry, and manipulate the environment.
We are so freaking screwed when #skynet goes online!! 🤖🤖
#BostonDynamics has released footage of a humanoid robot that can do box jumps and back flips. This is a significant improvement on robot capabilities – despite what years of sci fi movies have suggested, it’s actually really hard to make a bipedal robot walk, climb stairs and just generally keep its balance.
That’s why some of the entrants in recent humanoid robot Grand Challenges have looked less human and more like a cross between an orang-utan and a wolf spider.
