It’s still surreal to see that various advanced robots exist today. These advanced pieces of technology are the result of several years of research and hard work and today, we’re going to commemorate some of them in this blog.
If you’re one to marvel at technology and robotics, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some of the most advanced robots in the world today:
The closest thing you can get to a robot dog today is Spot. This advanced product of engineering can be impressive because it’s programmed to do things that a normal dog would do such as strolling around your area.
Of course, being a product of advanced engineering, this robot can do other things such as detect obstacles and fetch packages.
Additionally, even though Spot doesn’t have thick fur, it can operate in environments that have temperatures of around 20°C to 45°C.
Out of all the robots today, Digit is one that you should look forward to in the future. This humanoid robot is designed in a way to move agile which is far different than what you’d typically see in other machines today which tend to be much more rigid.
The developers stated that in the future, Digit will be used in aiding people in search and rescue operations thanks to their fluid movement and strength. It is said that this robot can carry up to 19 kg which can come in handy during these stressful situations.
Moreover, they also target households where Digit can help in taking care of families and people, in general.
Digit was developed back in 2019 by Agility Robotics in the United States. The machine is already being sold by the developers in 2020 for $250,000 and is targeted towards companies that need manual labour.
For the longest time, robots are depicted in pop culture as machines that can’t understand or feel human emotions. However, all of that was thrown out the window when Pepper was introduced back in 2014 in Japan.
According to its developers, Pepper is the first social human robot equipped with the ability to understand languages and recognise human emotion. With this kind of technology, this robot is used to interact and communicate with people. It can’t talk to humans verbally but what it does is that it displays words on its chest.
Pay close attention to these machines!
These are some of the most exciting robots to keep an eye out for in 2023 and beyond. Some have been designed to make people’s lives easier while others are just a marvellous showcase of today’s digital age. Regardless of their purpose, you can’t deny how technology has come since the dawn of mankind.For more content like this, feel free to check out our other blogs here at RoboCup!
