Agility had a busy 2021. This is a long video, but there's new stuff in it (or new to me, anyway), including impressive manipulation skills, robust perceptive locomotion, jumping, and some fun costumes.

Houston Mechatronics is now Nauticus Robotics, and they have a fancy new video to prove it.

And if that was too much for you to handle (?), here's "chill mode:"

The most amazing venue for the 2022 Winter Olympics is the canteen.

A mini documentary thing on ANYbotics from Kaspersky, the highlight of which is probably a young girl meeting ANYmal on the street and asking the important questions, like whether it comes in any other colors.

If I had fingers like this, I'd be pretty awesome at manipulating cubes, too.

This video is worth watching entirely for the shoulder-dislocating high-five.

Of everything in this SoftBank Robotics 2021 rewind, my favorite highlight is the giant rubber duck avoidance.

On this episode of the Robot Brains Podcast, Pieter talks with David Rolnick about how machine learning can be applied to climate change.

A talk from Stanford's Mark Cutkosky on "Selectively Soft Robotics: Integration Smart Materials in Soft Robotics."
[ BDML ]
This is a very long video from Yaskawa, which goes over many (if not most or all) of the ways that its 500,000 industrial arms are currently being used. It's well labeled, so I recommend just skipping around to the interesting parts, like cow milking.
