    This is a video of the bipedal Raptor robot, a two legged predator capable of speeds up to 46km/h (~28.6MPH). For reference, Hussain Bolt tops out at 27.44MPH (~44km/h). That means this little f***er could easily catch up to my out of shape ass and attempt murder. Only ATTEM... / Continue →

    Seen here about to get his coffee roofied as soon as he turns away, a professor from the Tokyo University of Technology shows off a robot fit with a "self-organizing incremental neural network" that allows the bot to learn, think and act on its own. You know, so robots really ... / Continue →

    This is a robot that balances itself on top of a ball. Impressive, but I've seen a clown at the circus do the same thing while juggling. Plus I winged a handful of peanuts at him. Dr. Masaaki Kumagai, director of the Robot Development Engineering Laboratory at Tohoku Gakuin ... / Continue →

    So a bunch of jerky scientists who should all be hung (like outlaws, not horses) for treason against humanity have created robots that evolve. And, get this: they've evolved the ability to hunt. Awesome, WE'RE ALL DEAD. The robots were controlled by a neural network that mut... / Continue →
