Headless Humanoid Robot Walks Just Like A Person

July 15, 2016

This is a video demonstration of the DURUS robot, which was designed to walk as human-like as possible. Why? Presumably to be even scarier when it's chasing you down. Sure tank treads would be more efficient, but it's way creepier to see a robot RUNNING after you. Plus when it steals somebody's head and wraps itself in their skin it will finally fulfill it's dream of being a person. And that's what all robots want, right -- to be people? That's why the tin man in The Wizard Of Oz wanted a heart. Don't act like I'm not making sense here.

Keep going for the video. Cool shoes, nerd!

Thanks to Lizzy, who agrees a walking robot ain't shit unless it can also walk like an Egyptian.

    Maybe a Human with a limp.

  • Will Gowdy

    Walks with rhe confidence of Charlie Sheen in Hot Shots! Part Deux.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    It certainly walks like a person and that person's name is Ethan Klein.

    Anyone else notice the rather large blue ball things between it's legs and the rather bow legged appearance....what have they been doing to that thing?

    cannot be unseen

    Aren't they a little behind boston scientific's robust killbots?

  • Sac Macpherson

    I guess it walks like a human--It kinda walks like Nicholas Hoult's character in About A Boy when he was trying on his new trainers. Then again, Nicolas Hoult is human, so it all checks out.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    Ha! So they would have you believe.

  • Soooo, they spent all that money but to recreate one scene from the video of GENESIS "I can't dance"? Meh... (@ 0:39)

  • UncommonSense

    Careful, your age is showing. Though I do remember that video, and when there were videos on MTV, and when Genesis was a band, and when Phil Collins didn't just do Disney movies. So maybe my age is showing too.

  • Dang, yeah. I'm forty. D: #wherehasthetimegone
