Two Legged Ostrich Inspired Robot Has A Playdate/Dance With A Spot Quadruped Robot

March 23, 2018

This is a video from Agility Robotics of Cassie, a two-legged ostrich inspired robot having a little playdate with one of Boston Dynamics' Spot quadruped robots. How cute is that?! It's like they're already dancing on our graves. Also, I think they like each other. I've been to enough school dances to recognize a couple that's going to end up behind the bleachers and get their parents called by Mr. Wright. Tell me at the very end of the video it doesn't look like they're about to mate. I've studied this behavior. Strictly for research purposes, obviously. "Obviously." OBVIOUSLY.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to speakerbox and K Diddie, who want to know what this couple's babies are going to look like. My guess is three-legged, still no heads.

    The ostrich robot debuted back in 1985 with the video for Art of Noise's "Legs". They are sandbagging us people!

    The humans may not have been so complacent if they knew what the robots were thinking

    Could they have painted that ostrich robot a different color? The lipstick orange is making me, eh, uncomfortable.

    They’re practicing dancing on our corpses. 😳

    You see those shifty eyeless bastards sizing each other up? They're definitely trying to kill each other.

    Cassie and Spot, sitting in a tree... K-I-S-S-I...

    *branch collapses under their massive weight and they tumble to the ground*
    *advanced gyroscopic allow them to stand up on their own power*
