Domo Robot Has Human-Like Eyes That Can Sorta See


I normally don’t give a damn about robots, but this Domo character is a real card. I mean, look at his eyes—they almost look like real eyeballs. Gnarly!

The eyes aren’t just for show, either: inside are cameras that essentially “see” Domo’s surroundings. This means that he (he?) can do things other than “normal” robot operations, like work on an assembly line or write about gadgets (putting our monkeys out of work. Sorry monkeys). The little guy can even recognize human faces. Frankly, that’s pretty creepy.

Domo was developed by a team of MIT researchers over the past three years. Just let me know when robots are beer-powered.
