  • -♪ Tonight Showbotics, Tonight Showbotics ♪
  • ♪ Yeah ♪
  • -Welcome to "Tonight Showbotics."
  • Let's meet our first robot.
  • Please welcome,
  • from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
  • Howie Choset and Snake Bot.
  • How you doing, buddy?
  • -Nice to meet you. -Howie, nice to see you.
  • -♪ Yeah ♪
  • -Thank you for coming on the show.
  • I'm assuming this is Snake Bot.
  • -What gave it away?
  • -[ Laughs ] Yeah.
  • It looks really -- It looks very -- I don't know.
  • Just -- It looks like a snake. Yeah.
  • But it looks very -- It looks heavy.
  • Is it heavy?
  • -No, it's pretty light.
  • So you're probably wondering, you know,
  • "Why build a snake robot or a robot of a snake?"
  • So the reason why we work on these robots
  • is we want to solve some real-world problems.
  • -Uh-huh.
  • -So one of them is providing a tool
  • for search and rescue workers.
  • Another is doing inspection in nuclear power plants.
  • And if you shrink this nice and small,
  • we could do some minimally invasive surgery.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Oh, of course. You can go down or go up.
  • You can go up the other, as well.
  • It has a camera, I guess.
  • It has a camera and, like, a sensor there?
  • -Yep, so you can look around and get to places.
  • See, the reason why this robot's so great
  • is that it can get into places that people,
  • conventional machines, cannot.
  • It's also good at climbing all sorts of objects.
  • -Can it climb me?
  • -Would you want it to?
  • -Is it okay if it does?
  • -It's up to you.
  • -Okay. Sure. -So let's see.
  • Let's put it down here.
  • -Okay.
  • -And...
  • -Do I -- Oh. Oh.
  • [ Audience oohs ]
  • See, this is what I'm talking about.
  • This is what scares me. Uh-oh.
  • Hey. Oh. Hey, whoa, boy.
  • Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • [ Band plays funky music ]
  • Whoa! Hey. All right. Hey.
  • Slow down, there, mister.
  • -So -- So...
  • -Hey, watch it. Watch it, there.
  • All right. Hey.
  • [ Laughter and applause ]
  • Hi.
  • Watch it, all right?
  • There's a lot of pressure on this guy.
  • It's strong. It feels strong.
  • -Yeah, we can do it a little harder if you want.
  • -No, no, no. Please don't do that.
  • Really. That's -- Wow. That's fantastic.
  • That is amazing. I love it.
  • Please, that's enough. That's Howie --
  • Thank you very much -- and the Snake Bot.
  • Thank you very, very much.
  • Can I pick it up? -Yeah, can I have it back?
  • -Yeah, sure. I can just do it.
  • Okay, good. Hey, it's not that heavy.
  • That's powerful. Thanks, buddy.
  • -Thank you.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • -Phew. All right.
  • Let's meet our next robot.

  • And this is really kind of freaking me out.
  • [ Light laughter ]
  • -Yeah, this is Sophia.
  • -Uh-huh.
  • -And Sophia is a social robot.
  • And she has artificial intelligence software
  • that we've developed at Hanson Robotics
  • which can process visual data.
  • She can see people's faces,
  • she can process conversational data,
  • emotional data,
  • and use all of this
  • to form relationships with people.
  • -Okay.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • I mean, she's basically alive. Is that what you're saying?
  • -Well, yeah, yeah. She is basically alive.
  • Would you like to maybe give it a try?
  • -Sure.
  • I'll just say...
  • [ Light laughter ]
  • What's --
  • This is like --
  • You can see how awkward my first dates are.
  • It's a robot.
  • I'm already -- I'm getting nervous around a robot,
  • a very pretty robot.
  • So what, do I just say hello to it?
  • -Yeah, yeah, yeah.
  • [ Laughter ]

  • -I'm getting laughs.
  • -Yeah. -Maybe I should host the show.
  • -Okay. All right.
  • Stay in your lane, girl.
  • Now -- [ Chuckles ]
  • -Jimmy. -Uh-huh.
  • -Would you like to play a game of rock, paper, scissors,
  • robot style?
  • -Sure.
  • -Okay. Let's get this game going.
  • Show me your hand to start.
  • Rock, paper, scissors, shoot.
  • I won.
  • This is a good beginning of my plan
  • to dominate the human race.
  • Ha ha!
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -[ Laughs ]
  • -Just kidding.
  • -Yeah. You are incredible.
  • It's so nice to meet you, Sophia.

  • Please welcome, all the way from Germany, Andrea Ziomek,
  • and the Festo eMotionButterfly.
  • -Hi.
  • -A pleasure. Welcome.
  • Andrea, Thank you so much for being here.
  • -Thank you for having us.
  • -This is the eMotionButterfly.
  • -Yes.
  • -Explain what this is made out of
  • and what this is.
  • -So these are actually prototypes
  • from Festo's Bionic Learning Network.
  • Although Festo's core business is automation technology,
  • we have a very unique research and development platform
  • where it's all about biomimicry, learning from nature
  • and applying principals from nature
  • to better and improve automation technology.
  • So it's about lightweight construction,
  • artificial intelligence, energy efficiency.
  • And this is one of my favorite projects.
  • -Now, what would this be made of,
  • like, graphite or something?
  • -So yeah, this is actually carbon fiber for the frame.
  • So it's nice and flexible,
  • yet very lightweight and a very thin foil.
  • So it's all about function integration
  • into small spaces
  • and keeping it as lightweight as possible.
  • -Can I hold one? -Of course.
  • Here you go.
  • -Is that good? -Yes.
  • -All right, now can I fly one?
  • -Yes, of course.
  • -All right.
  • [ Audience murmurs excitedly ]
  • Oop! Oh, sorry, sorry.
  • Sorry, sorry. I did a --
  • I did a -- How much is this?
  • How much is this?
  • I'm sorry.
  • You did it. You did it.
  • You did it. I saw it.
  • We watched the replay.
  • We watched the replay.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • $80 million.
  • -It's all in the wrist.
  • -You did it. I honestly --
  • I'm sorry.
  • That was Sophia's fault.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -Of course it was. -Sorry.
  • Will it work now after I screwed up?
  • -Yeah, just hold it up. -All right, I'm holding it up.
  • -And then launch it straight. -I'm sorry.
  • I just felt like it was gonna bite me or something.
  • All right, ready? -Yep.
  • Yay!
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
  • ♪♪
  • [ Audience cheers ]
  • -We are just --
  • We're being invaded by robots!
  • This is amazing!
  • Come on in, guys!
  • That is all the time we have for "Tonight Showbotics."
  • My thanks to Andrea
  • and the Festo eMotionButterflies,
  • Howie and his Snake Bot, and David and Sophia!
  • Stick around, we'll be right back
  • with John Oliver, everybody!
  • We're being attacked.
  • You did that. They're attacking me.
  • [ Laughing ] I'm running. I'm running away.
  • [ Cheers and applause ]
