Google Exits Robots or Replicants

November 15, 2018

Remember Google’s Boston Dynamics unit. That was the outfit with the robot reindeer. Perfect for pre school parties. I learned today that the ever frisky Andy Rubin’s last non humanoid fling has turned off the lights. The news appeared in “Google Shuts Down Bipedal Robot Team Schaft.”

This outfit was Schaft. It too made child friendly robots like this one:


Google now wants to create non humanoid robots. The decision means that robot rentals for children’s parties will not contribute to the company’s 2019 revenue.


“Hello, kids, let’s party,” says the Google Schaft thing.

If the party needs a bit of life, Schaft things can play hide and seek in the field near the pre school. That sounds like a good idea. Here’s Schaft approaching a three year old child cowering in a field behind a clump of grass.


High school science club thinking may be maturing. Think of those disappointed pre schoolers.

    Central to any or all three approaches is the thought of creating dfatabase links recording information regarding relationships
    between objects in several MBDs (such as linking a protein sequence in a
    single on the corresponding DNA sequence in another). Parents
    and students often find out if it’s possible to negotiiate having a college
    to improve the first educational funding package they have been offered.
    In fact, you could possibly actually boost your chances of getting scholarship support in the event you start ahead of the normal educational funding season.
