Recently, we featured a robot "scare-wolf" and a robot that serves you ice cream, but we humans still have one advantage to our mechanical servants, we have legs. At least, that was an advantage we had until now. Agility Robotics has created a robot called "Cassie" that can walk on its own similar to a bird or ostrich. The company hopes the machine will be used to help the elderly and in war-torn areas and not used to dominate mankind anytime soon.

Bird Plays Fetch & Cows Blown Away By Robot Ball

Iago loves to play fetch with his toy basketball. It's his favorite game. He even loves to mess with his human a little by pretending he won't bring the ball back but he always does. He's no different than any other dog! Except for the fact that he's a macaw bird. And he calls the ball a hat, so he's very confused in general but also very lovable. Then, Farmer Derek Klingenberg made sure his dairy cows got a special gift for Christmas, a robotic toy ball! They're not sure what to make of it at first, but they eventually learn to kind of ignore it. Okay, this might have been a fun gift for Derek more than anything else. View Now
