I used to think of robots as useless preprogrammed machines whose behavior was preplanned but after acquainting with this robot, my perception changed altogether.

This bipedal walking robot prepared by Mike Smyth appears like a mesh of wires and small gadgets but is different from rest of the existing robots.

This assembly has shaped an intelligent machine that can actually learn to walk on its own. The robot uses sensors in its feet to get familiar to the conditions of the terrain and analysis them using a complex algorithm that helps it to adapt to the terrain and walk on in comfortably. The robot can easily escape falling down in holes or colliding to any obstacle.

Mike Smyth wants to use this algorithm in some bigger, more complicated robots for opening new fields for its applications for these kinds of intelligent robots.
