Didn't anyone see 'The Matrix'?! This is how it begins!

Legs break down faster than wheels. That robot will have a short lifespan.

Diego Lozano January 4, 2022 - 10:29 PM

I though that legs use much energy than a wheels

Why Japanese name for a UK developed machine?

Yeah I heard about this but every video i have seen on the matter, has been a render and not a real robot. Till i see real footage of it working, i'll wait

Are you Margaret Hamilton's descendent? You resemble her, both of you are super cute! 😘

First time I thought you said Awesom-o from southpark.

Nice! Love the raw news feed format, thanks.

I cannot think of such a blatantly inefficient way to propel a vehicle….the organic lifeforms evolved "legs" because of a muscle structure can only "contract" forcibly…and pairs and multiple muscles for these "one-way" biological constructs. The wheel was one of humanities greatest inventions.

It's about time we explore the under world on the moon

I’m sure that The Clangers will welcome this probe, as they have welcomed so many before!

Wait, hold up. "Lava tubes" on the moon?

Wasn't it always about efficiency ? How in the universe are limbs more efficient than wheels?

Robert G January 6, 2022 - 10:32 PM
