The Robotics and Perception Group in the Artificial Intelligence Lab at the University of Zurich is nailing it. Funded in 2012, they are studying the development of autonomous robots through the making of seasonal videos. Which is all anyone really wants.
In the video a Parrot AR.Drone (they’re everywhere today) locates jelly bean eggs that the Easter bunny has dropped out of its basket so a KUKA youBot can pick them up and return them to a crying Roboy.
This video is hilarious for a number of reasons. First of all, whose rabbit is that? Second of all, who lay on the floor to get all the bunny’s-eye-view shots. Third of all, the Pirate’s of the Caribbean theme song is genius. What a gem. [IEEE Spectrum]
