Robots can do some pretty amazing things these days. Sure, there are concerns about humans losing their jobs to automation, but you have to remember that there are lots of high-paying jobs created for engineers and roboticists to design, build and program the robots themselves, and many of the jobs robots take on are laborious tasks that can be harmful or stressful to humans anyhow. Sure, there’s always a chance there will be a robotic uprising, and they’ll decide they don’t need us anymore, but that’s more likely to be science fiction than fact.
If you think robots are as awesome as I do, then check out this amazing highlight reel that HD1080ide posted from this year’s Hannover Messe exhibition. This annual German expo offers up the latest and greatest in industrial automation technology, and features lots of cool exhibits where robots demonstrate their functions live and in person.
In the course of this 10-minute video, you’ll see robots doing everything from serving up cold beer, to dueling it out with lightsabers, moving like snakes, and even lifting a car. It’s an amazing look at some of the machine technology that companies can use to build, handle, and ship products faster and more reliably than ever before.
That was so cool. I could watch this kind of thing all day long. Also, I want a robot bartender now.
