mini cooper robot?

Check this out:

*Vehicle to autonomous biped robot conversion for the Mini Cooper r50.

*CG or not :smiley: ?

That was sick, the only thing that I thought was missing was a video of the car transforming into the robot and vise versa. But other than that all i can say is where can i get one. lol

Just like the Transformers back in the 80’s. I think I still have a few. They also had a cartoon too.

Who knows, maybe 10 or 20 years from now we’ll be building robots like this for FIRST. Opps, I better not give Dave Lavery any hints! :wink: Just think of the autonomous program you’d have to write. :smiley:

how would we meet the weight restriction of 130 lbs. :rolleyes:

this reminds me of the Asimo robot that Honda built.

Asimo robot??? :confused: wats that?

yeah, it’s a robot built by honda that is able to simulate human movements, like walk or carry. Honda had a great commercial featuring it too.

Here’s the website for it

While I understand the complexity in making a robot walk, ASIMO’s marketing campaign really is mostly, well, marketing. The technical achievements, while still amazing, aren’t as amazing as they make them seem.

The MINI robot is computer generated.

u mean thats not a real robot

That’s exactly what I mean. It’s fake.

Can anybody prove it?
