We've Come So Far: Water Bottle Flipping Robots

April 23, 2019

These are two videos of a bunch of surprisingly impressive water bottle flipping robots built by high school students and demonstrated at Japan's ROBOCON 2018. It's weird because when my little cousins make me watch them flip water bottles it's boring and I regret offering to babysit in the first place but watching robots do it somehow makes it okay. Plus, you know, these robots don't suck at it.

Keep going for the videos, there really is some pretty nuts flipping action.

Thanks to DT, who agrees it's only a matter of time until water bottle flipping makes its Olympic debut.

    On the plus side these robots aren't actively learning how to kill so... I guess I'm okay with this.

    Why oh why are they wearing helmets?

    And then people wonder why Japan is experiencing a severe birth rate decline.

    Pretty impressive

    This is why I laugh when in movies futuristic robots can't hit a human target with a machine gun (like Terminator). In 50 years, robots would have sniper level skills when running I imagine.

    One shot. One kill.

    When they can shoot a beer into my hand on command, then we have something useful and that beer had better not be half full!

  • Munihausen

    Take those ridiculous helmets off.

    I do remember the time period when I lost my occupation several months back from my firm wherein I have given too much time and hardwork. I was under no circumstances into plans akin to make money "overnight" which afterwards turned into an online marketing methods where you should firstly get very interested people and then sell a product to friends and family or any person to make sure that they will be in your group. This web based work has given me freedom to work-at-home and nowadays I can dedicate precious time with my family members and get ample leisure time to go out on a family cruise vacation. This work has offered me an opportunity to make salary almost $21,000-$22,000 each and every month by doing simple web job. Go and take a look at most fantastic work opportunity.>>>>>>>>>>>>> urlshortener.at/bnBPY
