I've decided to create a general thread for robot videos, gifs, documentaries, and more. Not just new robots, but any robot. And not just robots, but also artificially intelligent computers (e.g. Watson, DeepMind, ELIZA, etc.) and proto-robots (e.g. Mechanical Turk, da Vinci's machines, Antikythera mechanism, etc.). 
 
This isn't a "news" thread, but a "Robot Appreciation Thread".
 
I'll start with these two:
Unimate - The first industrial robot (1960)
 
Pepper Learns and Masters "Ball In A Cup"

Boston Dynamics' first YouTube video, uploaded over 8 years ago back in January 2009.

 

 

Another 2009 vid, this one is the prototype of Petman and Atlas.

History will remember Trump supporters as brainwashed as*holes who voted against their own freedom, self-preservation, and right to live.

This new picking device can spot, pick up and place never seen before small objects at the rate of 500 to 1,000 times an hour. 

As you may recall, last year´s winner of the Amazon robotic picking challenge picked 100 items/hour– and in comparison with us, humans pick 400 items/hour.

Does anyone remember the sci-fi short video about a photocopier (or other office device) that was self aware/AI and tried to get connected to the internet? I have been trying to find it with no luck.

There's something almost therapeutic about watching an AI play a video game. Sometimes I mentally roleplay that playthroughs on YouTube are done by AI, especially those that have no commentary.

Everyone knows those things are answered by humans on the other end of a hidden computer somewhere in Virginia.

 

Also I think the point of video games isn't to see how far a computer can go (we all know it can do all the right moves) the point is improving your own skillset.

 

This seems to be the point a lot of robot Post Apocalypse people seem to miss.

That is an interesting statement. Are you referring to online AI programs such as the ones outsourced by Google? If so, I would like to know the reasoning behind this belief.


"We will soon create intelligences greater than our own. When this happens, human history will have reached a kind of singularity, an intellectual transition as impenetrable as the knotted space-time at the center of a black hole, and the world will pass far beyond our understanding." -Vernor Vinge, 1983

I want to like Romeo, but I can't. The head proportions are just too humanlike and that thrusts it squarely into the uncanny valley.
