‘MacGyver’ Robot Makes Use of Random Objects
Hand this robot a stick of gum and a paper clip and it will save your life.
We like robots, obviously.
Here is an awesome story from popsci.com
Give a modern robot a specific job to do and it will do it pretty well, whether it’s scooping dog waste, fetching food for humans, or searching a dangerous environment. But it probably wouldn’t be able to improvise, or figure out how to grab objects lying around it and use them as tools. Researchers at Georgia Tech want to change that, turning robotic helpers into machine MacGyvers that can use objects creatively to solve complex problems.
