(VIDEO) Biped robot walks on its own
In the video below we can clearly see a biped robot witch walks on its own legs. The robot is under development since 2001 by Anybots and has been named Dexter. Dexter`s walking seems to improve and it looks that in the near future he will be able to actually run with no support or help.
In the video Dexter is bullied in the name of science by another robot to demonstrate his ability to balance and move without falling, but can he dodge a football from your neighbor’s kid? Can he get up if he falls down?
We won’t see him in our house in the near future; he still has a lot to learn to be actually useful around the house.
Seeing this video made me wonder, how long until they take over the world?
