Robots Save Easter After Negligent Bunny Makes A Mess Of Everything

The Robotics and Perception Group in the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the University of Zurich is nailing it. Funded in 2012, they are studying the development of autonomous robots by making seasonal videos. Which is all anyone really wants.


In the video a Parrot AR.Drone (they're everywhere today) locates jellybean eggs that the Easter bunny has dropped out of its basket so a KUKA youBot can pick them up and return them to a crying Roboy.

This video is hilarious for a number of reasons. First of all, whose rabbit is that? Second of all, who lay on the floor to get all the bunny's-eye-view shots? Third of all, tasteful use of the Pirate's of the Caribbean theme. What a gem. [IEEE Spectrum]


What makes that robot move sideways?
