The DARPA Robotics Challenge has been fascinating to watch, but one of my main concerns (as is evident in most robotics stories) is how close are we to a Terminator-esque extinction of the human race? Based on this video of robots falling over quite comically, turns out the apocalypse is not here yet.
Watch robots tumble while attempting to complete simple tasks like opening a door or walking. It's a hilarious way to confirm that we're quite a way off Skynet.
