Actually, what you are about to watch is a video from Agility Robotics of Cassie, a two-legged, ostrich-inspired robot and one of Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robots. They are having a creepy little playdate.
Awww. Isn’t that adorable?
Great. Here’s another thing a robot can do something that I can’t – splits. Robotics engineers at Guangdong University of Technology’s School of Automation in China have developed a new robot that has jet-powered feet. This improves the bot’s balance, agility, and capabilities.
David Aguilar was born with an underdeveloped right arm. But he didn’t let that stand in his way, and he built himself an awesome prosthetic replacement using LEGO Technic parts. He has put a ton of time into it.
If you thought ED-209 from Robocop was big, he’s nothing compared to some of the huge robots in movies. I’m just hoping that life doesn’t imitate art, because if it does, the robot uprising is going to be full of massive robots.
If you like a good puzzle, check out this video by Ryan Calme demonstrating all the steps required to open the extremely complicated puzzle box he built for his father. The box as a bit of everything thrown in: cyphers, enigmatic symbols, magnets, electronics, gears, hidden compartments, and more stuff to confound your mind.
Many of us are on the lookout for the impending robot uprising, but once you see this video of skiing robots falling on their butts, you may not be so worried. The footage comes from the Ski Robot Challenge in South Korea outside of PyeongChang.
Nintendo recently revealed that it’s giving Hollywood another chance to get Super Mario right with a full-length animated feature from Illumination Entertainment. It’s gotta be better than that first movie right? The bar is definitely set very low.
When I was a kid, solving a Rubik’s Cube was considered an extremely difficult task for most. These days, there are armies of kids who can solve a Rubik’s Cube in seconds. So now they’ve moved on to increasingly more complex cubes to add to the challenge.
Last week we showed you LG’s latest TV that rolls up like a poster and now we have some video to share of the company giving a demo. At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, LG showed off their 65-inch rollable OLED television, and folks were appropriately wowwed.
Well here’s a new one. Below are some videos of The Real Life Guys constructing and testing a manned hexacopter drone which happens to be made from a bathtub. You might ask yourself, why choose a bathtub?
Fathers and sons do it, people do it in the park with their dogs, and Baseball players do it professionally, so why not let the robots get in on a fun game of catch? They want in on this human pastime too.
It’s been freezing lately across the country, and many of us are getting more than our fair share of snow too. I’ve had enough of the cold and snow. We need a way to take out our frustrations, and there’s no better way than to beat up a snowman.
Dawid Szmandra’s 1:24-scale Liebherr LR 11000 crane literally towers over other LEGO builds. In fact, when its boom is fully raised, it won’t fit in the house. This model is an amazing piece of LEGO engineering, sure, but the best part is that it’s strong enough to actually lift and move furniture.
There are nerds and then there are NERDS. These nerds are some kind of super-nerd wizards with amazing powers. They are out-nerding all of the nerdiest nerds. The proof is in the video below, in which Ravi Fernando and Nick Thomas solve five Rubik’s Cubes while juggling.
