Robot to human: "LOL, n00b!"


The video below shows a scenario that is likely to become real as industrial robots improve: a human and a robot work together to assemble an object from its parts. But in the clip from the University of Minho, Portugal, not everything is going to plan. The human gets a stern warning from the robot that they are doing it wrong.

The pair are assembling a foam chassis with two wheels. Although the robot has already attached the wheel on its side of the chassis, the human offers it another. The robot - ARoS - is not impressed. "Ah! you want to give me a wheel. I have already inserted the wheel on my side." When the human makes another mistake - offering it a bolt the robot doesn't need - the robot again refuses. It also points out that the human needs it for himself.
