WTF Is That? – Just A Man Driving His Own Personal Mecha Around

The below video is of a man just driving his own personal Mecha.

With some help from a couple of his friends, this guy was able to build a mecha he could control. He took it for a test drive on a basketball court and drove it around before showing off more of its awesome functions.

I’d love one of these, I’m not sure where I’d keep it though. It’s not something you exactly keep on the streets in my area. But if those are working guns then I’d probably just sleep in it. The apocalypse is coming people!

Keep going for the video.

NOPE – Robotic Spider Walks Like Real Spider Before Transforming Into A Wheel And Rolling After You

The below video demonstrates the BionicWheelBot created by Festo. When I look at this, I don’t see a bionic wheel bot, I see a God forsaken spider made out of metal! Naturally most of us have a strong fear of spiders (I know I do) so I’m not sure why they’d decide to model their robot off of one. What’s more terrifying is if you try and run away from such a thing, it’ll turn into a wheel and roll after you!

The biological model for the BionicWheelBot is the flic-flac spider (cebrennus rechenbergi). It lives in the Erg Chebbi desert on the edge of the Sahara. Professor Ingo Rechenberg, a bionics processor at the TU Berlin, discovered it there in 2008. The flic-flac spider can walk like other spiders. It can also propel itself into the air, however, with a combined sequence of somersaulting and rolling on the ground.

It is, therefore, ideally adapted to its surroundings: on even ground, it is twice as fast in so-called rolling mode than when walking. However, where it is uneven, it is faster walking normally. As such, in the desert, where both types of terrain can be found, it is able to move safely and efficiently.

Since its discovery, Professor Rechenberg has been working on transferring its movement patterns to the technical field. The studies into the spider’s behaviour led to the design of various robots that can propel themselves on difficult terrain. For the BionicWheelBot, the scientist from Berlin has now developed the kinematics and drive concept together with our bionics team.

You strap a few guns onto the top of that thing and Humanity is no more.

Keep going to see the demonstration video and the spider it’s modeled after; I sure as hell won’t be going to any deserts any time soon.

This Is How I Dreamt The End Of Humanity – Planet Earth Mock-up Featuring SpotMini Herds

This is a video from YouTuber NIXOLAS who has created a mock-up version of Planet Earth featuring the SpotMini robot created by Boston Dynamics. Literally, this is how I see the end of civilization as we know it. The Earth will just end up being the immortal David Attenborough narrating the migration patterns of wild SpotMini robots. They don’t attack David, because he is their overlord and any insolence will result in their death. Keep an eye on that David, I’ve seen it. I’VE SEEN IT!

Keep going for the video then go and hide in your underground bunker.

Blink And You’ll Miss It – Machine Solves Rubik’s Cube In 0.38 Seconds

The below video shows how rubbish us humans are at solving a Rubik’s Cube. The video, uploaded by Ben Katz along with a friend recently broke the world record at solving a Rubik’s Cube, previously set at 0.67 seconds. This does it at 0.38 seconds.

Have you ever thought about what you can do with 0.38 seconds? Not a lot I can assure you. Certainly not solve a Rubik’s Cube. The only time I solved a Rubik’s Cube, it took me five hours and several viewings of a YouTube instructional video. I left the solved Rubik’s Cube on the counter at 5am and then fell asleep for around 12 hours. Never again.

Click the link below to see how fast it is at solving, then see it slowed way down so you can be sure it’s not just an optical illusion.
