First Step to World Domination: Robot Learns to Clean A Whiteboard

No this isn't just another robot video. This is a robot video in which the HOAP robot by Fujitsu Automation learns instead of just doing what it was programmed to do.

I found the video quite compelling: first we get to watch the cute little death machine guy learn a few key moves, then he is positioned to erase the various letters on the board using what he knows. He's not perfect, and he's a little slow, but considering he was programmed to learn, the possibilities are endless.

First of all, let's just get it out of the way: this little guy is incredibly adorable. And, really, only a few learned behaviours away from becoming self-aware and cutting down that programmer at the knees. {removes tinfoil hat}

Enjoy!
