    • If you modify the rickshaw to use Strandbeest legs you could ditch those "wheel" thingies altogether. And with an added motor to the rickshaw legs you could have "all leg drive" ;-)

    • @Adam Savage’s Tested love the build, would 2 ball bearings connecting the rickshaw to spot's hitch structure ease backward and forward momentum? Giving a little more give on back and forth motion but maybe limiting radial rotation of the ball bearing to 70 ish degrees. I can even imagine a way to get them spring loaded to reduce impact stress... so manh possibilities 🤪

  • Riding the spot bots like a horse XD Adam I knew we could chill and get along. And time just name the beer brand and I'll roll a B. To the whole robot over lord business it is more logical that they would provide us with a utopia situation where all of our needs are taken care of and we are kept docile with immersive entertainment. Similar to how we keep creatures in zoos and as pets. Than it is that they would waste resources and chance possible defeat by what is the mammalian alternative to roaches.

  • I'm watching this and wondering why he didn't just copy a trailer hitch like what he keeps comparing it to. He basically built an upside-down goose neck hitch but in doing so added complexity.

  • Notice how the guy from Boston Dynamics never gives SPOT pronouns, he always calls it ‘the robot’. Definitely some kind of internal BD morality and ethics philosophy about assigning emotion to or gendering their products.

  • When you move a heavy wheelbarrow up an incline, lean forward and push up with your legs relative to your body. Am I anthropomorphising here or did spot look like it was doing that on the 2nd pull?

  • Great video, but you REALLY need to look at how animals are harnessed! You are trying to put the load too far back, and WAY too high! Put the load over the shoulders! Have you ever seen an Ox or Horse yoked up over the hips? You are robbing it of most of it's ability to pull, and shouldn't be surprised when it got knocked over at the end!

  • NICE to see , the dude with the lap top ,STILL AWAKE ! he's the only person calling " Spot " an IT ! after speaking the name Spot , everyone else says HE ! THAT'S very disturbing to observe ,ALSO DIS-EMPOWERING comes to mind, the wording of HE to an A.I. nightmare in a birthing process . HEY VIEWERS ! Alexa , gOO BOT AND ALL THE OTHERS still haven't woken people up I GUESS ! GO LISTEN TO THE " 10 SCARIEST THINGS ROBOTS HAVE SAID " video ! IT'S ON Y/T . MAYBE then review you're potential future with a new , fresh vision of reality . CONSIDER what our human future with these A.I. CREATIONS of deceit & UBER control will be like ? NOT JUST A VIDEO GAME WITH LEGS is a WAKE UP CALL TO ALL OF HUMANITY & OUR FUTURE AS THE HUMAN RACE ! CAN WE BE EN-SLAVED TO A TECHNOLOGY that learns FASTER then we do as a species ? BEWARE OF WHAT IS CREATED behind closed doors (THE D.A.R.P.A. SICKNESS / DISEASE ) ! KUDOS ! for calling " Spot " an IT ! " I T " IS ONLY A VERY SMART PIECE OF HARDWARE , O N L Y HARDWARE , no life !
