Korea's humanoid robot 'HUBO' joins PyeongChang Olympic torch relay
Robots in action at the Winter Olympics
From mechanical fish to painting robots, an array of automatons are high-tech additions to the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Interpretation Robots- Do you know how to speak Korean???
This year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang is working overtime to showcase Korean robotics technology, featuring robots to clean, guide visitors, drill through a wall to pass on the Olympic torch, and now, compete in ski tournaments. In a tournament aptly called “Edge of Robot: Ski Robot Challenge,” eight robotics teams from research universities, institutes, and a private company competed for a $10,000 prize to see which robot could ski down the slopes and race to the finish line the fastest while avoiding obstacles.
Future of Sports ???
