10 Amazing Robots That Really Exist

In This Video we'll see most amazing and coolest ROBOTS. The family of robot animals from the German developer of robotics Festo is growing. The company presents many new robots, for example: a swarm of ants that can interact with each other, as well as butterflies and dragonflies, which are characterized by all the ease and grace of these insects. When they were created, the company focused not only on their appearance, but also on behavioral characteristics. The ants coordinate with each other all their actions and movements. Each ant, that is 13-centimeter long, has on its belly a radio module, through which precise coordination is carried out.

As for butterflies-robots. The weight of each butterfly is only 32 grams, this includes two servos, a pair of small batteries, and a laser-made casing. After one charging that lasts fifteen minutes, butterflies will be able to flutter for about 4 minutes. And their flight looks very impressive. There’re not just butterflies, but a whole system that consists of ten high-speed infrared cameras installed in a room where butterflies fly. They track the infrared markers installed on the robots, transmitting data in real time to the central computer; so that’s how coordination of butterflies is going in the space. You can hardly distinguish these bionic butterflies from the real ones in the room where they fly.

Robotic seagulls and dragonflies that can fly just like their living relatives. The seagull was developed in 2012. Later, a dragonfly, that can hang in the air no worse than its natural counterpart was invented. All the details of the dragonfly were made on a 3D printer, and you can control this miracle with a smartphone. Through these developments, the company could edge out the development market of flying drones, but it doesn’t need it. The technology of flying and hovering in the air is worked on these two prototypes.
The kangaroo robot. At the core of the BionicKangaroo is the mechanism of "recuperation" - it uses the energy recovered from one jump to help it make another. Real kangaroos quickly got tired and could not jump for a long time without this mechanism.

Springs that store mechanical energy on the landing and give it away on the next jump are used in this project. BionicKangaroo that weighs 7 kilograms and highs one meter can make a jump of 80 cm in length and 40 cm in height. The power supply system, that forces it to move, is a pneumatic accumulator. The robot is controlled by a special bandage that reads myoelectric signals from the human forearm.

Robot shark. This unmanned underwater facility - a robotic shark length of about one and a half meters and weigh up to 45 kg. Like a real fish, the robot uses the tail to move and control its movement. The robot moves in a fish way, so it is very difficult to distinguish it or at least isolate it on the background of a real marine fauna. It can swim above and dive to depth. Such shark can rich an enemy ship unnoticed. She can spy, repair ships, and arrange sabotage.

The robot-spider. From the beginning it is worth mentioning that the spider model was printed using the 3D printer. The engine is integrated with the servo motors of the paws, three in each: the resulting system provides simple control of flexible, plastic movements with convenient coordination from the control panel. He was shown in one of the series of MythBusters.

Underwater robot-snake. The mechanical snake is designed to perform maintenance and repair of various mechanisms on the seabed, mainly on oil platforms.

  • The robotic fish's movements are surprisingly realistic. I'd love it if you could set one up with a camera feed and remotely explore lakes or the sea.
  • @romandraco8930
    That snake could actually be very useful. A robot that could dive underwater and fix pipes would be a serious game changer.
  • @maxdraws908
    La tecnología es impresionante, como imita la realidad y la mejora, no puedo esperar a ver qué será de los robots en unos años!
  • It's great to see what Boston Dynamics and others are working on. But I'm curious to see what Boeing, DARPA, and other defense contractors have. Those will be the real overlords.
  • Robot chef looks absolutely great, extremely well designed and seems suprisingly dexterous at the tasks required for it to do. I'm enjoying watching this robot stuff.
  • @ventrexia
    Wow, the butterflies are really amazing. I‘d love to have one.
  • Un robot nunca podra sustituir a una mascota real,las emociones que expresan los perros es inigualable mas aun cuando conectas con ellos a través de su mirada te pueden comprender en menos de un segundo si estas molesto ,alegre o solo bromeando con alguna travesura que realizó entre otras muchas cosas que lo hacen único
  • @marinaskye9
    i didnt realize how futuristic the world has already gotten.
  • @darhi_yis9175
    They'd be awesome in the film industry once they're more advanced and more realistic looking.
  • Battery technology is going to be the thing that holds us back with robotics. Need these robots to go 10 hours, not 5 to 90 minutes.
  • @leerobinson9969
    Man I want that robot chef, I can see this coming to every home
  • @jaymulberry
    The developments are completely consistent with a "Terminator" creature and, in fact, the military probably has thousands that are battle-ready. (Though not with self-awareness like those in the movie.)
    The next question: could the electronic creatures learn to learn.
    Answer: Yes. In fact they have
    Next question: Might the predict what humans will do next?
    Answer: Yes. In fact they already have.
    Next Question: Could they, in theory, turn against humans in a "Terminator-like" way?
    Answer: Yes. Or, "Terminator-like" creatures might be hacked to turn against their their designers.
    Next Question: design and operate improved replacements for themselves.
    Answer: No question about it.
  • Nothing short of fascinating!.... Nature has shown us the way and now it appears we are learning how to follow and replicate.... Exciting advances in technology and our future... for sure.
  • If there is a company developing a robowolf with voice recognition software out there I need to tell you something. I would love to have one of those.
  • @EmoCatXP
    I can see me in 20 years saying to young people: “Back in my day we didn’t have robots to do everything for us” 😂
  • If the robot chef has restricted movement (as in, it can't stab behind it), then I see no reason for it not to wield knives at whatever speed it can safely do so.

    I would be quite happy with such a speedy, knife wielding robot in my kitchen if this were the case.
  • @captjim007
    At the rate we are going, I wonder if any humans will be alive in another 100 years.
  • Fantastically scary if these wonderful inventions Ge used for military purposes. Which we all know is inevitable.
  • The four legged house hold helper, the robot kitchen and the fish robots all move so fluidly that it's actually very surreal and creepy
  • @Drooblemeister
    This still doesn't feel like the world we live in, seems like something that's supposed to happen 20 years down the road.
