Here’s Some Cool Ass Robots

Gizmodo’s got a great rundown of some cool ass robots made by mad robo-scientist Shigeo Hirose.  Robo snakes, robo raptors, robo stair climbers, and robo roller skate bugs that skirt that cliff overlooking the uncanny valley.  What’s especially awesome (and perhaps a little unsettling) is that many of these robots were made back in the 90’s.  Will a soccer team of robots win the World Cup by 2050?  I’m starting to think that’s entirely possible.
