The Best Robots of 2009 51

kkleiner writes "Singularity Hub has just unveiled its second annual roundup of the best robots of the year. In 2009 robots continued their advance towards world domination with several impressive breakouts in areas such as walking, automation, and agility, while still lacking in adaptability and reasoning ability. It will be several years until robots can gain the artificial intelligence that will truly make them remarkable, but in the meantime they are still pretty awesome."

Comment A bad case of "think different" (Score -1) 438

I owned a couple of Saabs in the 80s during their heyday. I liked that they were "different". But the reality is that even though I purchased them with low mileage, I had nothing but mechanical problems with them. It was just like owning the many American cars I had previously. I started buying Japanese and later, German, and watched lots of those problems go away. Saabs? Good ideas but poor execution. They needed to die. I think other than trucks, where they serve a useful purpose, GM should die too.
