What have you been up to lately, Atlas?
That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot that weighs 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance. For more information about SpotMini visit our website at www.BostonDynamics.com

Megabots, thank you for issuing the video.
On behalf of Japan, we accept your challenge.
But on one condition: That melee combat be a part of the fight.
Organize the duel, Megabots, and we’ll be there to battle it out.
This duel stands to go down in history as the world’s first giant robot battle.
Let’s make sure it’s something for the historians to write about.
Two robots have tied the knot in Japan in what is thought to be the first wedding of its kind in the world.
Frois, the groom, and bride Yukirin walked the aisle, wore traditional outfits and even carried out a ‘wedding kiss’ at the event in Tokyo on Saturday.
Special invitations were made, featuring a picture of the two robots inset in a heart, and the 100-strong congregation included a range of smaller robotic models.
After the ceremony the couple even managed to ‘cut a cake’ before an automated orchestra performed a song for the equivalent of their first dance.
The event was organised by Maywa Denki, which produces electronic accessories and designed the groom Frois.
Marrying the robotic couple was likewise a robot – Pepper, who was developed by Aldebaran for Softbank. It actually tends to customers’ needs on a daily basis at the company’s mobile phone stores in Tokyo.
Frois’s head is said to have been inspired by a bath stool, while there are considerably more sensible claims to fame by Yukirin, whose real version can be seen fronting the famous girl band AKB48. For the wedding, and possibly, for copyright reasons, the organizers had to change her name to Roborin.
A crowd gathered to watch the pair stroll down the aisle at central Tokyo’s Aoyama Cay on June 27. They had to dish out $81 for the pleasure of witnessing the ‘holy union.’
