VIDEO: Robots doing crazy things in our Robot Roundup

Subscribe to our Newsletters

As promised on our Thanksgiving Day show, here are some videos of robots that make us proud to be the species the robots will eventually overtake.

First, there’s Ant Roach. He/She/It is a big lumbering blue thing. Inflatable! Can carry 1000 pounds! Goes in the water! Looks like an aardvark with bonus legs! Haunts your dreams!

 

Then there are the Wavegliders. These bots have already left San Francsisco and are swimming – swimming! – to Japan and Australia. Good luck, swimming robots!

 

Finally, how about the Min7.1bot. It’s a robotic mouse. Because I guess we need robotic mice. And it can solve a maze in 4.1 seconds. Hey neat! Go robot mouse go!
