Festo’s Robotic Walls of Doom

Festo, a company we’ve featured here on [GaS] in the past for their extraordinary work on various forms of strange robotic organisms, is back with a new video showcasing the latest toys out of their development labs: two robotic penguins, a robotic hand… and a robotic wall. Yes, you read that right: A friggin’ robotic wall! I don’t know about you guys, but being surrounded by walls like this would totally freak me out. Oh, they may look fairly inoffensive for now, but one day, these things might be programmed to crush you at the slightest nod of their owners. Ok, maybe not, but the thought is still disturbing, right? Video after the jump.

  1. The Bionic/Robotic wall is really awesome. It behaves depending on it's environment. Very great idea. But it is a little bit freaky being surrounded with those things. But still, this is a breakthrough in technology. Thanks for the news. BTW, I think that "molecubes" (is that right?) will really have some good applications in the near future.
