MABEL: I Robot.

Hello,

.

Something a bit different from the usual today.

It is about robots….and no, I am not talking about our current crop of politicians.

.

Researchers in development at the University of Michigan have created MABEL.

MABEL being a two legged robot which is now being put through it’s paces.

.

It can run at 6.8mph, which is a very impressive record for a bi-pedal machine.

.

The people who developed this robot are confident that it will lead to great things.

They foresee this as leading to wonderful applications which will benefit mankind.

.

Perhaps as exoskeletons which will enable paralysed people to walk around.

Or, as leading to wonderful prosthetics.

.

Perhaps this type of development will lead to them being used for rescue in disasters or fires  and their strength should be amazing.

You must want to see it in action, so here it is.

.

MABEL runs free.

.


.
MABEL’s first attempt at walking over rough ground.

.
Of course, not all applications will be peaceful ones….so how about an army of Russian Combat Robots.
.

.
Japan. Robots of the future, to aid an ageing population.

.

.
Science never stops advancing does it!

.

Have an inventive day yourself.
