Three videos of robots doing cool things

John Moe Nov 1, 2011

On our Tuesday show, we talk about a trio of robots doing some kind of amazing things.

There’s PETMAN, the new robot that walks, squats, does push-ups, and sweats. Here it is in action.


Then there’s the robot that climbs wall. It’s modeled after a gecko. A gecko? A gecko!
