Watch This Robot Open a Door For Its Robot Buddy

Here’s a cool video of Boston Dynamics SpotMini quadruped robot opening a door for its SpotMini buddy. Opening a door – while quite a simple move for humans, can be quite a feat for robots. Here we see the first SpotMini end up being helpless at the door (no surprise there), until its buddy shows up with an arm-like attachment to open the door. The bot opens the door, uses its foot to keep it ajar, and then pulls it open. Simple, eh? Quite a leap for bots though.

This Two-Foot Tall LEGO Robot Is A Badass

The RX1 Behemoth is built to be a mighty warrior. It is based in part on the Spyrius space theme set that LEGO released back in 1994, and it takes some cues from the official 6949 Robo-Guardian set. Except this one is much taller, and for all purposes, stronger than those puny predecessors. It stands at 56 centimeters tall and has a 10-wheel drive. Oh and here’s the good part – builder Spacerunner built this one for play, not just display.

Flame Throwing Drone Burns Trash Off High Voltage Lines

Flame Throwing Drone Burns Trash Off High Voltage Lines

An electric power maintenance company in Xiangyang, China is using drones to burn trash off high-voltage lines. Plastic bags and other debris often gets stuck on the high voltage lines, and it isn’t quite safe to send a human to fix that problem. Enter the fire breathing octocopter that burns the crap out of all that crap. We suspect engineers managing these drones would be quite eager to give a demonstration of their skills, or thoroughly clean every inch of the lines. There are a couple more pics, but unfortunately no video of the drone in action.
