Oben ein paar klatschende Roboterhände ohne Körper von der Tokyo DC Expo 2011. Von Tokyotek: „These “Ondz” robotic clappers where developed by Masato Takahashi, a researcher at Keio University who crafted them from molds of his own arms. The arms are made of an aluminium skeleton coated with urethane flesh and were specially designed to make a natural sounding clap.“

Darunter ein Passive Walker, der ohne Elektrizität nur von seinem Eigengewicht angetrieben wird (von letzterem noch ein weiteres Video nach dem Klick): „There are thighs and lower legs made out of aluminium that are the same length as their human counterparts, and ankles and knee joints for articulation, but… that’s it. No sensors, no computers, no “musculature” — the legs are completely passive, you just give them a push… and they carry on walking. “

So. Und ich würde gerne die klatschenden Hände auf die laufenden Roboterbeine schweißen und mal abwarten, was passiert.
