We have some very good reasons to fear our future robot overlords, but this video is proof that we still have plenty of time until we are all enslaved. IEEE Spectrum put together this video compilation of robots falling down at the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge. DARPA challenge? More like DERPA challenge.
There are some pretty spectacular fails here. Watching this makes you wonder how they plan to take over the world at all. These ‘bots can barely stay upright. Maybe they all had a party the night before and are hung over. All I know is that I’m not afraid of them after seeing this.
Robots falling is pretty hilarious. Of course, they probably know the names of everyone who is laughing at them. We will pay later, but for now enjoy the video.
