With technology constantly moving forward we are getting more and more robots coming out on the market. Of course this is nothing compared to the robots we will have in a few centuries but it’s still pretty cool! This is a cool humanoid robot called Alpha 1S.
You can control it via bluetooth with your smartphone iOS or Android. 16 servo joints, flexible like a human, 3D visual PC software to both create and control each action, easy-to-use interface, STM32-F103RDT6 processor, 7.4V 2200mAh battery and 3W mono speaker.
Alpha 1S also comes with good battery life a full charge can last you 60 minutes. That is way better than many drones out there that needs a recharge every 10-20 minutes. You can also share your 3D creations with other people!
The robot comes in blue, white and gray colour, and the charge time is also short. You can really see how flexible the robot is on the pictures.
I am super curious where this will go in the future when we starts to combine the flexible joints with real artificial intelligence, but it will probably take another 10 years at least before we start to see more interesting stuff happening on the AI front.
As we have been seeing now with Google and Tesla both have AI controlled cars on the roads. And eventually trucks will also be having AI controlled vehicles.
A large industry is of course the Taxi industry where Uber has taken over a lot of the market with amateur drivers. And eventually the amateur drivers will be replaced by robot drivers.
This major area of transporting stuff or people will all eventually be replaced by robots who make less mistakes. And eventually what will the jobs be for the humans when robots can do it all? That is a very good question it will be interesting to see. What do you think about the Alpha 1S?
