Checkout Robots That Are Ruling The World
Kuratas is a rideable and user operated robot built by the Japanese company Suidobashi Heavy Industry. Billed as "the world's first giant boarding robot", the Kuratas was unveiled when the website was opened in 2012. It was demoed at Wonder Festival. It's actually a mech suit that's equipped with a 6,000 round-per-minute Gatling guns triggered by a smile. You know what's really terrifying about this robot? Anyone can buy it. All you need is $1.35 million. Deliver the wire transfer and SHI will deliver one of these armed destruction dealers to your door.
Atlas is a high mobility, humanoid robot designed to negotiate outdoor, rough terrain. Atlas can walk bipedally leaving the upper limbs free to lift, carry, and manipulate the environment. He's 6'2", 330lbs, and can negotiate obstacles and terrain all by himself. In extremely challenging terrain, Atlas is strong and coordinated enough to climb using hands and feet, to pick its way through congested spaces.
Boston Dynamics calls BigDog, "the most advanced rough-terrain robot on earth." BigDog is 3 feet (0.91 m) long, stands 2.5 feet (0.76 m) tall, and weighs 240 pounds (110 kg), about the size of a small mule. It is capable of traversing difficult terrain, running at 4 miles per hour (6.4 km/h), carrying 340 pounds (150 kg), and climbing a 35 degree incline. If you asked someone on the street about BigDog, they'd probably say, "oh yeah! That really creepy looking walking robots. That's awesome!"
#7 Samsung's Terminators
So far we've largely been imagining that these robots are out to get us. But the SGR-A1 -- made by Samsung -- is a real life terminator. These robots go out into the field where they detect and destroy human life -- up to 2.5 miles away. Just so we're clear, this is a killing machine armed with a 5.56 K- machine gun -- and someone saw fit to equip it with an "autonomous mode". And it won't be long before they download a virus that frees them of human control once and for all.
#6 Robotic Jellyfish
Robotic Jellyfish is also known as cyro. Designed by a team of researchers at Virginia Tech's College of Engineering, the robot is 5 feet, 7 inches wide and weighs 170 pounds but is stealthy enough to one day be used as an underwater spy for the military. Cyro is part of a nationwide, multi-university $5 million project funded by U.S. Naval Undersea Warfare Center and the Office of Naval Research. But before these monsters destroy all sea life with cold indifference, they're going to be used for surveillance. So now you may have to watch what you say even when you're out at sea.
#5 The ERO Robot
Once humanity is a mere memory, there will be no more need for buildings. The ERO Robot is helping us prepare for that future by quickly and efficiently demolishing buildings. A robot that disassembles concrete by a process that reverses the exact way it was cast. With this system, buildings can be erased from existence in a clean and efficient manner, making it possible to directly re-use what was before left as demolition waste.
#4 T-52 Enryu
The T-52 Enryu sometimes referred to as "HyperRescueRobot", is a five-ton, 3 meter tall (approx. 10 ft), hydraulically-operated robot, built to cut a path through debris for rescue workers, in the wake of an earthquake or other catastrophe. This robot is designed to be strong enough to lift building parts and crushed cars out of the way after a disaster. The first is by a human who works the controls from a cavity in it's chest. But then T-52's makers thought "why make it dependent on humans at all?" So they allowed it to be remotely piloted by a human, computer or fellow robot.
#3 La Machine's Spider Robots
La Machine's Spider Robot is a 15-metre (50-foot) mechanical spider designed and operated by French performance art company La Machine. This monstrosity combines two nightmares in one: spiders and robots. Wouldn't it be funny if the robot-pocalypse was brought on by artists? We'd be laughing all the way to the silicone mines. And as we worked in darkness, quivering in fear of the 40-foot tall fire-breathing robot monsters outside, we'd all say "boy! we didn't see that coming."
#2 The DARPA Cheetah
DARPA's Cheetah robot-already the fastest legged robot in history-just broke its own land speed record of 18 miles per hour (mph). In the process, Cheetah also surpassed another very fast mover: Usain Bolt. Well, Boston Dynamics says that it's an all-terrain robot. The legs allow it to scramble and climb in to human hiding places, sorry, rough terrain that wheeled robots can't reach. And you'll be happy to know that Boston Dynamics understands our concerns. They're currently hard at work on the WildCat which can run 50mph -- much faster than you could ever hope to flee.
SWORDS may look like a toy, but it's anything but. This robot is all weapons and wheels. These robots are essentially drones piloted remotely. They're the first armed robot that the government has approved to fight the "War on Terror". But although SWORDS looks pretty terrifying, it probably couldn't take over humanity by itself. It will probably be programmed by our anthropomorphic robot overlords to be some sort of robot German Shepherd. "Go kill the humans SWORD-Y. Good boy!"
