What better way to ensure your robot can withstand the daily rigours of life than by punching it over and over? Watch as Anybots uses a mechanical boxing glove to beat the crap out of their $US15,000 QB robot.
Designed by Anybots CEO Trevor Blackwell, this robot torture device, although not as rigorous or quantitative as other quality assurance tests they perform, is used for evaluating head impacts. The 1-inch diameter cylinder behind the boxing glove is pressurised at 75psi, and the poor QB gets hit a total of 50,000 times per day, with 10-15kg of force striking on each impact. [Anyblog]
