This strange disk robot moves like a stranded magikarp
We have recently seen a lot of disturbing movements from robots. The robot of Boston Dynamics jumped into the heart and nightmare of the Internet with its smooth movements. They can even parkour, which is good sometimes. Okay, here are some robots that move more smoothly, a bit.
Chinese software robotics engineers showed some impressive movements of this weird black floppy-not that kind-if politely, it resembles a manta ray, but more like a carp using splashing in the action. Presumably, they are different from Magikarp in that they work by changing the distribution of fluid in the flexible disk. This allows them to make fast, controlled, directional jumps. This means that even if there are obstacles, they can move in any direction, including upwards.
Whistleblower Register These robots do not look impressive in the video. In short, really. But these discs can use the electricity of these liquids to redistribute them to 7.68 times their own height. They are very thin and light, weighing 1 gram and 6.5 cm long, so they don’t look like much, but considering future applications, this is definitely a robot worth cringing.
Of course, if the Magikarp Jump game can be played, Magikarp can jump higher, but Pokemon is a difficult comparison. There are also many creatures in nature, and their size can jump higher, especially when observing insects and fish.Relatively speaking, their height is close to 10 times their body size, and their jumping height is almost the same as Klip Springer, This is still stupid.
The new expertise of these soft robots helps make these Stunfisk analogs more mobile and able to detect environmental changes.Researchers hope to switch to unrestricted models soon, so you might see these fluttering in this place
Maybe we shouldn’t be afraid of the hard, stiff body of the Boston dynamic robot dancing. On the contrary, we should start preparing for a war with soft flaps. I am a little worried.
