    And at the other end of the "useful and needed" spectrum are these self-parking office chairs.

    Now hiring: Chair recharger dude.

  • That is wild, it needs more open space than a non-balancing robot, but still super cool.

  • There's little advantage to self-balancing for the application, it doesn't really provide any
    utility but degrades efficiency and safety and reduces redundancy. Basically an automatic fork-lift
    with some extra manipulation abilities is what is needed for logistics. Suction isn't going to work
    with heavy packages either, so very gimmicky all-told.

    Boston Dynamics, beat THIS! The girl's hands are a blur, reminds me of the Rubik's cube solving robots.

    Note that the cups have holes in the bottom for airflow. :)

    A production-ready BD Spot Mini? Beautiful 2-legged hop.

    Ken, it's high time for another Parallax walker!
