2011 --- The Year in Bots

There's an article in Fast Company going over the year in Bots.  

When you check out these videos, it starts to make you feel like the future is rapidly advancing on us.  It wasn't that long ago that robots were mostly stuff of science fiction magazines, comic books, and movies.  But as this article shows, technology is getting better and better every year.  There's a video showing robots who look just like a real man.  

Another, has a robot named Petman walking on a treadmill and staying balanced even when pushed.

There's even robot dogs now!

Check out the article because there's a bunch more great stuff in there.  And as somebody commented in one of the videos:

 "Prepare for our robot overlords!!"
