No helmet?
How do we know it's a robot and not just something like an amusement park ride?

Don't be jealous that I look this good. I am just emulating your favorite right-leaning Ted Nugent. ;)

Definitely should have had a helmet! Robot Ride 5 was the name of the video on YouTube. I don't know if it was a pre programmed maneuver or done remotely. I personally would not have gotten on the thing if it was not pre programmed with laser positioning sensors to measure the riders dimensions. lol

There is a link below the video window you can click to watch rides, 1, 2, 3, and 4. Perhaps we can look at them to see if the movements are the same sequence.


Here are 50 robotics videos that are robots, as far as I know. (Well... most of them. I have some things that would not fall into the AI category but are still cool!) Several professionals in the AI field giving hour long speeches. Some longer:

Risky!!!!!

I'd be too scared of the hydraulics failing. His head was very close to the deck.

That arm was huge and must weigh several hundred pounds. Would have swabbed the deck with his head, but good!
