The most difficult task when owning a motor boat is properly launching the marine vehicle into the water. Most people just use their truck or suv that pulls their boat on a trailer to the water to carefully launch.
A truck RV-boat hybrid of sorts seemed to be literally backing up into the water unlike any other trailer attempting to launch a boat would.
Then the driver hit the brakes at just the right moment for simple momentum to pull the boat half of the RV off the hidden trailer and into the water.
“That was cool,” responded the boy witnessing the event. Even CarScoop is confused by the monstrosity of an RV.
In honor of the new Nintendo Wii U, Retro Game Addict made this outstanding computer animation tribute. Most people don’t know that Nintendo was gaming way back in 1885. They sold player cards back then.
One of the frontiers in robotics entertainment is creating genuine interactions between people and the actual bots. Playing catch is the next obvious step in humanoid development, and Disney believes they have finally worked out many of the bugs.
They published this video a week ago showing off their humanoid playing catch and juggling with human friends, and now the video stands with over a quarter million views. The video is further featured on TechSpot, TheVerge, PopularScience, and EnGadget.
The future of human and robot interactions will no doubt only grow.
This video was posted online in 2010 by acdcasic, but it has only gone viral now. The short clip shows a user’s perspective using one of the new automated bicycle underground parking garages in Japan.
The user simply puts his bike into the stand, and swipes their card. A large robotic arm in the garage tube that descends deep into the ground grabs the bike, and can park or retrieve it in less than a minute.
