Who ever did the Audio for this video really fucked it in the ass with no lube....i mean for fuck sake how did u get hired

Is it just me or are the acronyms slides a reference to "Kids Next Door"?

People seem to think the Boston Dynamics robots always run perfect. You don't see many of the failures.

To all robot inventors: You should consicer to cease such practices like drawing faces of a robot on the box. Someday fully sapient robots will see this, and Humanity will be embarassed;p!

It seems that this is a good independent unit. But they make humanoid robots so that they can use things designed for people. Doors, handle of the distribution board, cutters. Everything around us is meant for man. Sure fire truck more efficient than a man, but it did not multitask.
Good work

What would really help robotics research take off would be a standardized "NATO Alphabet" of descriptive words, to facilitate the rapid prototyping of cute clever robot names.

"We need bipedal robots, but they are hard to build." Solution: Rename legs to limbs and make a 4 limbed robot! Totally makes sense

Does anyone have any information on the BEAR actuator, I can't for the life of me find a single thing about it using google fu. I assume it is either a direct drive DC motor, or same with a 10:1 or so gear head, but I would really like to know if it is interesting or not.
SHRIKANT SHITRE (3 days ago)
Guys, great job.. Not using just gear motors you did a great job..this kind of motion control can give us almost more than 1000 types of motion controls. Very useful for space science. As you shown single arm can be used for in different ways..it's really amazed everyone. Best luck

how does it turn?
icebluscorpion (3 days ago)
Old Chinese wisdom " when You can cheat, than cheat" why spending too much efforts on high complex Algorithmic when you can change the shape of the robot too get the same behavior on walk stability a nifty cheat/trick to get to the same matter and beyond Boston dynamics is like NASA and UCLA like Roskosmos they would make better Robots if they get money blown up their as too. like Boston dynamics or NASA

Mzaphod Bibl (3 days ago)
I dont get this video.. He says, bipedal locomotion is really really hard to implement. Then he goes shittig on it: It's so this, too that.. all in all bad.. So, we made this much more stable and simpler thing.. It looks like he's shaming bipedal locomotion so his could prais his leftover work after failing to make good usable humanoid thing.. Also, I dont get the appraisal of such an obvious thing.. Like saying, tripod is much more stable than monopod. I was actually surprised that video is from near past.. Looks like something from dunno.. ..2004? Actuator is another thing I guess..

Tristan D (3 days ago)
Loved the conference, idk why do people still focus on humanoid robots... Actually walking is very complicated and it does not only requires our legs, but our whole body: for instance, we use our arms and our spine to compensate the momentum he was talking about It is too early to try and make some realistic humanoid robots; trying to make them stable by giving them so large feet for instance is pointless in my opinion, that's why I enjoy alternative ideas like these

Can't you simulate the wobble effect just by software, using force or amperage sensors

"humanoid robots are too expensive and complex and they fall over :'( :'( :'( " ...meanwhile, in boston they have an untethered humanoid robot that can backflip and 360 no-scope from a ledge
MonkeyKong (1 day ago)
some humans would fall over in conditions such as being shoved, running on rough or icy outdoor terrain, or endlessly being experimented with to see what it takes to make you fall over. Personally, i'd probably break my neck trying to do a backflip
Anton Fosselius (1 day ago)
But they still fall over, but they do not share those videos.

jed23ify (4 days ago)
Progress in the smallest area of robotics is great, like that B.E.A.R actuator that they engineered. But I didn’t like the intro to this presentation, it’s almost as if they were embarrassed that they couldn’t reach that level of biped robotics like Boston Dynamics. We all know how stable the robotic bipeds from BD are, so I don’t think they should have used that as an excuse. But I understand that financing of the technology, it is very expensive, but please UC Berkeley, they have already figured out how to get away from the clumsiness of building bipeds.

Yes this is amazing it should go in every robot.

Atlas from Boston Dynamics should have walked up that stage, ran towards their bot, jumped over it and autonomously grabbed their bot with his arms to throw it of stage :D Just kidding, their bot is awesome too.

I wish I could find more information about the BEAR actuator.
Xander Zoolander (5 days ago)
The bear motor, or whatever the acronym is, is the only interesting thing here. Everything else is way behind the curve, not just in relation to Boston Dynamics, but even hobbyists can create better robots. You need omni-rotational joints and bio-mimicry to have a successful bipedal robot. Boston doesn't yet implement this on Atlas, but even they have a better bipedal than what you've created. Sorry to be so critical, but you're doing what hobbyists have far surpassed, and hobbyists do it with their own money. Like I said, only interesting and new thing here is the bear motor, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone quickly re-engineers it. At least Boston gives us interesting updates, like a jogging Atlas. Can NABi or ALPHRED jog?
Rahul V (1 day ago)
in my opinion Nabi is a great advancement as compared to Boston Robotics' Atlas and family only on one and most dominating parameter - the cost! with the new actuator, they can change the game!
Roach DoggJR (2 days ago)
Well, I'd say the actuators are more than interesting.
Phillip Shcherbakov (3 days ago)
You are so right! I've noticed in the past the huge difference between human muscles and motors, but I thought that pnuenematics would be the answer. THIS ACTUATOR IS AMAZING, & QUITE AHEAD OF ITS TIME!
