@Deberra: Yes robots are important but you must make sure that those robots are controllable. If not it will make a big problem. Always humans should have the control over the robots

No doubt robots are important because they make the lives of human simple , easy and stress free but robots without humans are also nothing that is if something goes wrong in the robot than it is the human only who repairs it and fix it down . so we can conclude that robots cant take the place of humans.

Cabe, you are right no doubt robots cant replace humans but they can work more hard than them we can say that humans are smart workers and robots are hard workers they continue to work and work and work without getting tired and bored .

Re: Image 5 - Cheetah Robot speed is a typo

I believe that second speed was a typo and should have read 12.65 meter/second.

Good point, SherpaDog. It probably won't happen for awhile, but you never know--someday it could! I personally am still impressed by robots like BigDog and LS3. Just their sheer mass and the fact that they can move autonomously (well, LS3 can) is impressive to me.

Haha, good point, Cabe. Humans do have other strengths over robots as well!

Robots never need a break, love to perform monotonous tasks and will gladly work on weekends. That right there pretty much blows me out of the water.

But.... we can stay out in the rain!

Sorry, yes, i realize the error now! It is meters, not miles for Cheetah. Sorry about the mistake! Yes, indeed, that speed is too incredible to be believed!

The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Automation technology advances matched with expanded fracking and the growing urbanization of Asia, South America, and the Middle East, are fueling a boom in the automation industry.
