Robots walking faster and learning from their mistakes – but still rubbish


The disappointingly slow development of decent robots continues disappointingly slowly, with RunBot – the latest little robot that’s barely able able to walk on two feet and learn from its mistakes. It takes the thing four attempts to learn how to walk up a really small hill. And it appears to be held up with wires.

Basically, robots are rubbish.

There’s still at least 30 years of development needed before one of these will be able to bring us over a double vodka and cranberry juice, then poo out a couple of fresh ice cubes into the glass from its rectal ice machine. Hurry up, scientists.
