Ubtech is once again trotting out its Walker bipedal robot. Pun intended. But this time out, the previously limbless robot has a pair of arms so that it can grab and pass objects to you, like a proper robot servant.
Nobody likes to see children struck down by illness. Kids are innocent and don’t deserve things like that. It is enough to break your heart. But here is an uplifting story with a geeky twist. Stephanie Kaloi’s 4-year-old son recently went through surgery and came home with his knees immobilized, so he needed a walker.
Those who are short of sight can now be led by a miniature AT-AT walker instead of a proper guide dog. If they only knew what kind of monstrosity was leading them, they would no doubt let go and run in the opposite direction, hitting the nearest pole and getting knocked out cold.
While this isn’t recent (it actually dates back to 2007), it’s still fun. With parents spending way too much on strollers, it’s cool to see this Imperial AT-AT Walker Stroller in capable hands, and built on a budget.
Want your child to have the best costume come Halloween? Ask Japanese company Sakakibara Kikai to sell you their miniature exoskeleton, which is meant to be driven by kids. It’s not as high-tech as Raytheon’s XOS 2, but it works and it is so damn cute.
I’m not sure why this Star Wars AT-ST is pink. Oh, and blue, and yellow, and… well. You see. It’s bright. You could aim logs at this walker from quite a distance away.
Evil looks good in bright colors.
