Films have taught us time and again that owning robots is the way of the future. They have also told us that this will most probably lead to an apocalypse or AI revolt of some kind. But nobody listens to movies and so we can now buy our very own Robot Arm…………that’s right just the arm. I’m not sure if it’s like those collectible magazines where we’ll be given a different limb each week until we have our fully functioning droid, but this is good for now!
No longer do we have to worry about lifting things and moving them before dropping them somewhere else. The arm can do it for us! It can also stack objects and even knock them over (I’m thinking domino rally revival).
The video is slightly more illuminating in that it shows the possibility for adjustable grip on the hand. I’m thinking this could be the advent of a new drinking game. Although I’m also pretty sure it could be mass marketed to teenage boys for something quite different indeed. You see it’s only five minutes since Artificial Intelligence became a consumer reality and already I’m reducing it to nothing more than a means to drink and get freaky!
Anyhow as you can see this is yet another example of a great idea to alleviate boredom for less than half a day. But good fun whilst it lasts!
