Boffins' ball barrage bombardment biffs bumbling bimble biped-bot
Mini Star Wars scout walker attacked
Morning Vid For your amusement this morning we have this video of a walker robot being attacked by a gang of boffins in a park:
The machine was built at Oregon State University, is known as the ATRIAS and - you guessed it - is funded by Pentagon warboffin bureau DARPA. It's to be a contender at the DARPA Robotics Challenge in California this summer, in which robots will compete against one another in disaster-response and rescue scenarios.
There's more on the walker robot ball barrage park outing from OSU here. ®
