Fancy a round of catch? This Disney robot plays an eerily humanlike game. In a combination of engineering and sorcery, researchers created a robot that follows the ball in the air with its eyes, catches the ball in its hands, and reacts when it misses a catch. Also, it juggles.
They used an external camera system to track the balls and an algorithm to predict where and when the ball would fall. When the robot misses a catch, it looks back or down at where the ball fell, shrugs, or shakes its head. This guy was designed for theme parks, but one day it will be playing catch with our children and fetch with our dogs. Next they should program it to make dad jokes.
AUGH THAT IS SO CREEPY, i want it...
to mars or bust!
great. We're all gonna die.
Next Skynet will be throwing bullets at us not baseballs....
Robots are getting more and more human. Now we can play with our balls too, lol! ;)
They already run faster than us, now as you run away in terror they can predict where your neck is going to be then grab it and rip your spine out.
Or just grab your heart right out your body and let you run till you collapse.
my friend's mother-in-law makes $85/hr on the computer. She has been without work for 8 months but last month her income was $21777 just working on the computer for a few hours. Here's the site to read more..== BIT40 COM ==
Sit that robot on a segway instead of those human type legs, fit it with a debilitating, riot type sound weapon in one hand and a scythe in the other and we'll be praying for an EMP attack.
Your icon is excellent. I human head inside a light bulb, with a sunrise in the back ground; a symbol for the future. That is so cool!!!!
Thanks for the kind words.
My icon needs a jet pack though.
