Japan has made so much progress in robotics and robotic engineering, for rest of us it is increasingly becoming a catch up game. As I have posted earlier, now the robots in Japan can handle tasks like pouring beer in your glass. (Read here if you want to see robot preparing beer glass for you) University of Tsukuba has taken robotics to a new level by combining it with AI – Artificial Intelligence.
The latest robots prepared by this university can automatically line themselves up and be ready to be a step under your feet. Wherever you walk, these robotic steps follow your feet thus making a walking ladder for you.
These tile like robots or robotic tiles track your every step. Follow your feet as you move them along and position themselves so you won’t fall on the ground.
