This gymnastics robot has got some sick skills
Robots are really evolving into machines that are more convincing, efficient and have superhuman capabilities. If a robot were to challenge a world class gymnast, how would it fair in the challenge? By the look of things it would be a stiff challenge for the most agile gymnast out there, and it’s just the beginning. This Japanese robot has got some sick skills when it comes to being spatially aware, along with the agility to move lighting fast moves.
The Youtube video comes courtesy [hinamiteatu], a robotics development team with a keen interest in creating new type of robots. This gymnastics robot is an improvement on their earlier version, and it does look impressive.
Clearly this is an indication of where robotics are headed, and we can expect a robotic dominated future in the next 3-4 decades.
