Because some people don’t actually like pumping gas (what’s wrong with them? The smell alone is worth it, not to mention the extra half gallon I can squeeze in the tank by pulling the nozzle almost all the way out), there’s an Autofuel robotic gas pump in operation at a
Because nothing quite screams robot apocalypse like a flying robotic spider, researchers at the University of Tokyo’s robotics department have developed just that, in the form of SPIDAR. What does SPIDAR stand for? Why ‘SPherIcally vectorable and Distributed rotors assisted Air-ground amphibious quadruped Robot’ of course! Jeez, use your brain.
