Loki: incredible robot design. I want one.
I stumbled across this amazing homemade robot called Loki (named after the Norse god of mischief) last week and had to share it with you.
This four foot tall robot not only looks fantastic but seems to be highly functional, thanks to some nifty systems and programming by its creator, Dave Shinsel.
There’s a ton of video over at Dave’s YouTube page which really gives a flavour of what Loki can do.
Loki has remote control and logistics over Wi-Fi, vision processing, speech recognition, indoor pathfinding and basic artificial intelligence.
Lots of data on the web site if you’re inclined to have a go creating your own Loki. Otherwise, just sit back and enjoy the show.
