Ten robots that are steeper than any of you in sports





Okay, maybe these professional athletes before they even far away, but that does not stop the development of robotics. And who knows, maybe in the very near future, robots will be able to compete even with them. Nevertheless, most of the following cars are much Athletic (so to speak) than most of today reading this text. Please find the top ten most “sports” robots, which gave rise to the mother-robotics.


To become an outstanding gymnast (and it is not certain), you need to start training at an early age (about 6 years), but to impress others, you do not need to pace yourself daily workouts – you just have the same robot, what the user has created YouTube Hinamitetu. Quadruple somersault and precise landing “feet” – for it simply seeds.
Master of balance

You can train for years, wearing on his head a book, but you suddenly get into a ball, you are likely to fall, or at least lose your balance. And being in a tipsy state is likely to occur with a probability of 100 percent. But with ” Atlanta “, a humanoid robot created by Boston Dynamics, such a thing will not work.
Faster than the wind

If you are not a quick as Usain St. Leo Bolt – the fastest runner in the world in three disciplines (running the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4 x 100 meters), you will not be able to even come close match with the creation of the same Boston Dynamics: her robot Cheetah can run at a speed of 45.5 km / h By the way, the maximum speed at which Usain Bolt can run is 44.7 km / h
Extra heavy lifting

The company FANUC Robotics America has created a robot M-2000iA, capable of lifting very heavy things. Very heavy stuff. For example, a pair of wheels of the train weight of 1,200 kg (that’s more than the weight of the vehicle Volkswagen Beetle!) Robot can pick up “over the head” with one hand (the second he does not).
High jump

Sand Flea robot receives award the best jumper in the world – he is able to jump to a height (just think) 8 meters! Apart from the fact that the robot can easily jump on a building so tall, he is also no problem with it and can jump. Dire consequences for a person to such a desperate act, I think, no need to explain.

Robot Seal (yes, the “seal”, watching video, you’ll understand what I mean), created by Taiwanese Robotics is capable of a 99 per cent every time accurately hit the basketball net, at a distance of three meters from him. I do not recommend playing a game of “33”.
Precision in every movement

You know the game, in which a man puts on a flat surface of the palm, fingers and rastopyrivat very quickly leads between them with a knife? So, the robot ABB Robotics wins of any, even the most hardened geek who adjust to this occupation. An example of this can serve video above where the robot leads an impromptu “knife” between banks Fanta distance between itself and a can of “blade” of 1 mm.

In order to build a robot that would be able to beat the fed balls, scientists have created a “neural brain” (a network of hundreds of thousands of neurons). If the robot misses, the neural network is built on a different principle, until you found the right combination, allowing the ball to beat each filed.

Swumanoid, a humanoid robot weighs only five pounds and growing a little less than a meter – the future Olympic champion. No joke, but to create a body of the robot of the future, the Japanese robotics even held a 3D-body scan of the former Japanese Olympic swimmer! But a full-length replica decided not to do, and did the robot Swumanoid, which has turned into a half smaller size as compared to the former athlete. Unfortunately, the robot is not able to beat the world record – its rate is about 0.64 meters per second. But for a robot of this size and this figure is very impressive.
Football. Even Messi rests

Well, in the end probably the most succulent. The confrontation between the robot and a real live athlete. FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi met in a fight one on one with the goalkeeper robot on a Japanese television show. After two failed attempts (!), Messi still managed (with difficulty!) Score a goal. There still is hope for the human future in the light and heavy lifting!
