All the signs of the robopocalypse are starting to coalesce. We’ve got robots that look like people, ones that can butcher, and even one that can self-replicate.

Cardboard Clone Trooper is a Perfect Clone

Cardboard Clone Trooper is a Perfect Clone
Check out this amazing Clone Trooper Halloween costume, that was made for a 10-year old by his Star Wars-loving dad Parrster. The most amazing thing is that it’s mostly made out of cardboard and papier-mâché. It definitely looks awesome. The only missing piece is the boots!…

How Many Tiny Helicopters Does It Take to Lift a Human? 16, if the Human Goes Willingly
Robots are taking our jobs, sure, but look at that image. They are also taking our humans. This guy went willingly, but one day they will join together just like these little helicopters and carry us away while our limbs flail helplessly.…

Spider Robot is Creepy, But Helpful

Spider Robot is Creepy, But Helpful
The disaster in Japan early this year showed people that robots are often needed in the wake of a massive catastrophe like the tsunami and earthquake. When the nuclear plant started to meltdown and radiation leaked out, humans couldn’t get to the plant to help, so robots were brought in.…

HyQ Quadruped Robot Kicks, Trots and Rears Up
If they create anymore quadruped robots, we are going to need to build some robotic zoos to house them. We have BigDog, AlphaDog and now HyQ. HyQ was developed at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), in Genoa. This hydraulic quadruped can do a bunch of new tricks.…

Robot Hopes to Dress Humans One Day, Sticks to Dummies for Now

Robot Hopes to Dress Humans One Day, Sticks to Dummies for Now
One day robots will enslave us, then kill us. I can’t see it going any other way. The only way it could be worse is if they captured us and dressed us up in uniforms first, because that just seems really demeaning.…

Denso Five-Axis Robot Serves Ice Cream

Denso Five-Axis Robot Serves Ice Cream
I am not a germophobe by any means, but if I had the option of that pimple faced teen in the mall scooping my ice cream or getting it from a robot lacking the extra skin oils and pimples, I would go for the robot. Denso robotics has posted a…

RIBA II Robot Carries Frail Humans, Doesn’t Pile Them Like Cordwood

RIBA II Robot Carries Frail Humans, Doesn’t Pile Them Like Cordwood
News of the RIBA II robot has been around for quite a while, but I don’t think we’ve really had a quality video of it in action until now. The bot is designed to work in hospitals and help carry patients from one bed to another, whether they want it…

Primer-V2 Robot Rides a Bike, No Training Wheels Needed

Primer-V2 Robot Rides a Bike, No Training Wheels Needed
We’ve seen robots that are capable of riding bikes (and unicycles) before, but usually they are slower than this guy. PRIMER-V2 also seems to have a ton of confidence. It’s crazy how good this little ‘bot is at riding his bike. I now foresee a future where bots will roam…

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future
I don’t know why robotics experts haven’t thought of this before, but this tire-like surveillance robot is the way to go for mobile and autonomous operations. Even better since it looks like it’s right out of science fiction, from Terminator, The Prisoner or Fahrenheit 451.…

Beeri: Siri-Controlled Robot Serves Beer

Beeri: Siri-Controlled Robot Serves Beer
Apple’s Siri voice assistant is quite clever and very accommodating, but it can’t make things happen in the real world. Not yet anyway. But when combined with Arduino, it’s capable of just about anything. Like controlling a beer-serving robot. If by serving we mean “pierce a can and let its…

This Robot Plays Angry Birds For You So You Can Do… Nothing

This Robot Plays Angry Birds For You So You Can Do… Nothing
