Japan's giant robot fixes railway wires

quote [ Appearing like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, this giant humanoid robot can lift up special equipment and carry out maintenance work on out-of-reach railway contact lines in Japan. ]

Lol pretty sure I mentioned a setup like this a few years ago while talking about how VR is going to advance automation through training neural networks.

Also I wish America was a real country with an up to date rail infrastructure. 😔

Up to date rail infrastructure is socialism.

Capitalism is bailing out too big to fail banks.

Pains were taken to give it a humanoid appearance. Props for that.

Using VR allows them to record an insane amount of data for making an autonomous version.
