(Re/Code) The founder of Schaft, one of the robotics companies Google acquired three years ago and moved to its X lab in December, recently showed off its latest development. A short bipedal robot trotted out onstage, followed by a video showing it fielding through different obstacles courses, plodding up stairs and navigating the outdoors.
A rep for X (formerly Google X) said. “As with all of the robotics teams that recently moved from Google to X, we’re looking at the great technology work they’ve done so far, defining some specific real-world problems in which robotics could help, and trying to frame moonshots to address them.”
