Shall we go skiing with robots tomorrow?

This seems to be the moment for robot research for me.  At least that’s the topic I picked for this month’s version of my column over at Futurismic, Today’s Tomorrows.  Since I don’t like to let my column over there get to be longer than about 1,000 words, I couldn’t include everything.  So for the column I picked non-humanoid bots.  That left out this one pretty cool robot I wanted to share here – the skiing robot.  Here’s a Singularity Hub article on the skiing robot.  I can just imagine seeing this go by me on the slopes.  And then I imagine being on Candid Camera.  Anybody remember that show? I mean, that’s the poleaxed  look I’d have on my face if a robot flew by me down a snowy hill.
