Digit is gradually stomping the Agility Robotics logo into a big grassy field fully autonomously.

This is a pretty great and very short robotic magic show.
[ GA Tech ]
I've seen this done using vision before, but Flexiv's Rizon 4s can keep a ball moving along a specific trajectory using only force sensing and control.

This combination of a 3D aerial projection system and a sensing interface can be used as an interactive and intuitive control system for things like robot arms, but in this case, it's being used to make simulated pottery. Much less messy than the traditional way of doing it.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris called astronauts Shannon Walker and Kate Rubins on the ISS, and they brought up Astrobee, at which point Shannon reaches over and rips Honey right off of her charging dock to get her on camera.
[ NASA ]
Here's a quick three minute update on Perseverance and Ingenuity from JPL.
[ Mars 2020 ]

[ Team CERBERUS ]
What you can do with a 1,000 FPS projector with a high speed tracking system.
[ Ishikawa Group ]
[ ANYbotics ]
Does your robot arm need a stylish jacket?
[ Fraunhofer ]
Trossen Robotics unboxes a Unitree A1, and it's actually an unboxing where they have to figure out everything from scratch.
[ Trossen ]
[ Red Hat ]
Christoph Bartneck's keynote at the 6th Joint UAE Symposium on Social Robotics, focusing on what roles robots can play during the Covid crisis and why so many social robots fail in the market.
[ HIT Lab ]
[ Stanford HAI ]
Sawyer B. Fuller speaks on Autonomous Insect-Sized Robots at the UC Berkeley EECS Colloquium series.
