SCHAFT introduces new bipedal robot at NEST conference:
At the conference, the robot was shown dealing with unsure footing, walking on uneven floors, step on a pipe and keep its balance, catching itself after trying to be tripped up, and maneuvering through tight spaces. The bot can apparently also clean a set of stairs with a spinning brush and vacuum attached to its feet. There's even a demonstration showing the bot walking without trouble holding a heavy weight. But don't get too excited for this bipedal robot just yet. According to sources, this SCHAFT presentation wasn't a product announcement. The team just wanted to share their latest progress on this product.
