Robots are not perfect! Get ready to see this very funny, must-see video of humanoid robots falling during a recent robotics competition called the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge in Pomona, California. Get ready for a few good laughs!
Oh... and before you watch this video, don't forget to turn your volume up:
While it's funny to watch what the robots didn't do right, just think about how hard it must be to program these robots do a lot of these tasks that seem so easy for humans. Even after engineers & researchers spent years building these robots, they still aren't perfect.
During the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge, 25 teams from around the world competed for a grand prize of $2 million. The goal of each humanoid robot is to complete tasks that could help in an emergency disaster where it is too dangerous for a human.
Check out this video to watch the humanoid robots successfully completing their tasks:
And in case you're wondering, DARPA stands for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency & is part of the US government that is responsible for new technologies for the military.
Do you think you'll want to build a humanoid robot in the future? Will you win the $2 million grand prize?
