    @fergus247 well I believe that simply because of costs that wont happen too often, because remember we still do live in a commercial world where prices do make a difference and making them that much stronger would only put them even further out of peoples price range, and the only ones who would need to be that strong would usually be factory robots and they don’t even have an excuse to be able to walk so I wouldn’t worry about it.

    but hey what do I know ey?

    @stbays Ah I get it… The title used to be misleading, I thought the dummies were meant for testing humanoid robot safety. Thanks!

  3. i dont like. no …
    i dont like. no reason to make robots strong and durable. they pose a bigger threat then

  4. One of the most …
    One of the most unintentionally funny videos I’ve ever seen. Watch when you’re tired or in an otherwise altered state.

  5. @omsrswt The point …
    @omsrswt The point isn’t the dummy, but the arm and the software controlling it. They’re trying to make it so the arm will stop just short of doing serious damage to a person, thus making the work place much safer.

  6. Why the robotic arm …
    Why the robotic arm? Couldn’t you just hit the dummies with a bat? It’s not as if the dummies are mass manufactured for these kinds of tests.

    Maybe a force/weight measuring device on the dummy at the point of impact?
