The robotics company says the 66 pound machine is two feet, nine inches tall and remains the quietest robot the company has ever built. It’s electric, has 17 joints and can run for 90 minutes on a single charge. The machine which can haul a 30 pound payload relies on a variety of sensors to navigate the outside world and has the ability to handle objects using an arm that vaguely resembles an ostrich’s neck..
Grunting women: Wimbledon is usually such a civilized place, with the queen dropping by occasionally and everyone slurping down strawberries and cream.
