In an effort to showcase how motors can be utilized to achieve precise tasks, Czech Technical University's Department of Control Engineering created a robot that juggles. Yes, that's right -- juggles. Sure, the machine lacks any true practical use when considering task completion, but it is certainly entertaining to watch.
Below, a clip from The Sun shows the mechanical wonder juggling three billiard balls:
And here, from a different angle, you can watch the brut manage five billiards:
Useless -- yet pretty cool, right? Now that we know just how good robots are at handling "precision tasks," let's start getting them to clean our homes, take out our trash and handle other frustratingly-menial tasks. Thoughts on that?
