Schau dir "China's Best Robot Restaurant!" auf YouTube an https://youtu.be/Td9I6fqM9Gg

Very cool. Needs some tweaking but for most of the things seems to work already.

@Bernd Paysan schon mal in so einem Restaurant gewesen?

On the left is a full scale copy of Herbert Televox, the first human form robot Westinghouse built 1928. In the middle is a full scale copy of Elektro as he would be from 1939 – 1957, when he was modified. On the right is the original Elektro as he looks today. In the robotic exhibit we also have the surviving pieces of Herbert Televox from 1928.

Interesting tiny robots that are made from a single PCB that is then cut and folded. They can also cooperate with each other to perform group tasks.
Tribot looks like a tiny circuit board because that's what it largely is, but there are some significant additions to the circuitry. One is a small lithium polymer battery, which means all the power for its motions and circuits are carried on board. The motions are powered by what's called a shape-memory alloy, which can be deformed at one temperature but snap back into place once the temperature is changed. Flexible hinges and a polymer core allow these "muscles" to move any of the three legs either gradually or with a sudden snap, all enabled by tiny heaters embedded in the hardware.

Another interesting feature of the robot is its construction. The circuit board and polymer are originally made as a flat, triangular unit. A couple of folds are all that's needed to convert this shape into the Tribot's trefoil design.
[...]
The robot represents a significant advance, given that previous attempts at building robots that could move via different mechanisms involved simply having the robot carry different hardware for each mode of movement. But perhaps just as surprising is that the tiny circuitry contains everything needed for the robots to cooperate to perform tasks.

They wanted to stop the foreigners stealing their jobs, soon the robots will be coming for their jobs. And they won't be able to blame the EU for that.
Also, I fear Bradshaw is deluded. Robots will be able to differentiate those things very quickly. Or the processes will be changed so that they will be able to.

#Robots build a #Robotics #Museum. That raises an extremely exciting question, formulated excellently by author Jesus Diaz: „Are they using robots to build the robot builders, and, if so, who will build the robots that build those robots and would this infinity loop cause a tear in the space-time continuum that will suck the entire museum into a black hole?“
