The latest masterpiece from Georgia Tech is a bot that can stride leisurely like a human, swagger included. Its new range of moves include a more ‘natural stride’ (Engadget), and the ability to wear a hip pair of Adidas kicks.
Georgia’s AMBER-Lab released their latest development after making a series of tweaks and adjustments to their original DURUS bot (Spectrum). Quoting Aaron Ames, director of Georgia Tech’s lab and engineering faculty:
Our robot is able to take much longer, faster steps than its flat-footed counterparts because it’s replicating human locomotion.
To be honest, this latest robot both fascinates and worries me simultaneously. Science is going to great lengths to design robots that replicate human behavior. While I can certainly recognize the possible benefits this may offer to humanity, it also may hinder or threaten it.
Still, look at that swagger.
