Pipe robot doesn’t smoke a pipe

Pipe robot doesn’t smoke a pipe


This robot, designed by Jeff Terrell consists of dense PVC plastic piping for the body, its head moves 180 degrees left and right, and a strip of red LEDs under his mouth light up when it is speaking. The bot also uses a head mounted video camera and tracking software to integrate computer vision. We just hope that it’s AI isn’t too good so that it makes its way back to the sewers to find the rest of its pipe-made body.

    With styling like that, I’d be more worried about it going off in search of Obi-Wan Kenobi. :-)
