Industrial robot arm used as a hypnotic clock


Got a spare Denso 6DOF industrial robot arm? Why not program it to play the integral role in a large round clock, hypnotically sweeping back and forth in regular, smooth arcs, plucking bricks and moving them, resetting them and keeping time? Seriously, this is endlessly fascinating. Link (Thanks, Dean!)

  1. Surely this is robotic creulty and/or abuse. Not only do we have them do boring, repetitive tasks, but now we have them doing pointless, boring, repetitive tasks!

  2. great video, but the relentlessly upbeat zydeco music ruined it for me. I would have preferred either no music at all, or something a little less manic.
