BIG I – Fast bipedal robot with knees

In Today's Big I we looked at MABEL, a bipedal robot with knees that can run a 9-minute mile!

MABEL's creators say she's been built to one day save lives in search and rescue missions - and lead to exoskeletons for people who are paralyzed.

    I am reminded of iRobot, watching Mabel run. Pros: active limbs for people with prosthetics, helping people walk again, possibly giving soldiers ability to see combat again. Cons: though i don't believe it'll happen exactly like Will smith played it out, I do get the idea artificial intelligence will grow out of the power of human hands if left unchecked.

    I'm looking forward to those days where robots will help people with every day work and these robots of tody are something like first robot pioneers.

    Dear Mabel,After reading your arelicts, I do agree with u and would like to ask u for some of your points of views. This couple broke up over 2 yrs already but she's been coming over and hang out with her x every Thurs. evening since the day she left till presence. He cooks dinners and stay in every times she visited. All of her clothes are still in his draws/closets. All of her personal belonging r still left the way it is(toothbrush,shaver, make up ects) she still have the keys to the house & both of his cars. All of her mails goes to his place and some of the bills r still under her name. Can they very b just friends or the word FRIENDS r just their excuses???????
