Water Bottle Flipping Robots Are a Thing Now

 |  |  |  April 24, 2019


Me in 1988: By 2019 we are going to have flying cars. It’s gonna be so cool! Me in 2019: Looks at water bottle flipping robots in disgust. This is where we put our engineering energy? I mean, explosive flipping robots might be fun, but water bottle flipping robots? And I’m still driving on the road here. What the heck, guys?

The two videos below that show a bunch of water bottle flipping robots that were built by high school students and demonstrated at Japan’s ROBOCON 2018. I have to admit, these robots make it look easy. They just toss the water bottles in the air, flipping them perfectly so that they land on table tops that are set at different heights.

They can even bounce the bottle off a trampoline first before perfectly executing a landing. It’s pretty impressive to watch it happen. I suppose when robots are spending their time doing useless stuff like this, it extends our human lives by keeping them busy. Keep up the good work! We’ll provide all of the bottles you need to compete endlessly.

All I can say is that if humanity’s survival ever depends on landing a bottle perfectly on a table, we have our saviors.
