Never a complaint. He wiggled it everyday and when it bled at his after school care, he pulled it.
I've never been terribly impressed with ASIMO for some reason. It has always seemed a little two careful to me. I can't say that these videos change that opinion but the running looks pretty good.
Infrastructure hacking is a very real concern and will become more so as vehicles begin to communicate with each other and the infrastructure and begin to drive themselves. This particular hack relies on the openness of and its reporting structure but that doesn't mean future systems that are more critical will be immune.
I'm sure this is dramatized somewhat for the camera but I suspect the mentality is real. Watching this reminds me a little of watching
instead of long drawn out powerpoint engineering let's get back to embracing the failures. how many rockets did we blow up on the launch pad on our journey to go from the Earth to the Moon. those No's didn't stop us, but kept us moving forward to change the world.
I hope is successful with this launch soon. I, also, hope the numerous delays help them and Commercial Crew zealots realize that space is hard and there will be issues.
These new legs will provide R2 the mobility it needs to help with regular and repetitive tasks inside and outside the space station. The goal is to free up the crew for more critical work, including scientific research. Once the legs are attached to the R2 torso, the robot will have a fully extended leg span of nine feet, giving it great flexibility for movement around the space station. Each leg has seven joints and a device on what would be the foot, called an "end effector," which allows the robot to take advantage of handrails and sockets inside and outside the station. A vision system for the end effectors also will be used to verify and eventually automate each limb's approach and grasp.

Hugh Herr presents the amazing state of the art in artificial legs and his incredible story in building them. This talk includes some fantastic technology and fantastic (and emotional) stories. It is truly inspiring and it is exciting to imagine where things are going.
I, also, like how he talks about augmentation beyond restorative. In his case, having had both legs amputated many years ago, he began building artificial legs that actually made him a better rock climber. Why attempt to return to human form when there may be better options for specific tasks?
