Mad Quickies 4.6 The Zombie Easter Edition

This is the start of Jeebus’s Really Bad, Pretty Awful Weekend and we’re celebrating with a fairly warped Easter basket full o’ Quickie-e-e-e-es. Dig in!

More zombified, animatronic treats…


Unlike the podcatcher robot, here are some robots that are actually doing something
other than sitting there.

The Hubos

from the page
Four of Drexel’s HUBO robots perform the Beatles’ “Come Together” in a demonstration that combines cutting-edge engineering technology and research with creative expression, produced by the Music & Entertainment Technology Laboratory (MET-lab). The HUBOs are operating autonomously (not human-controlled). Their movements are directed by student-developed software to perform the gestures necessary to produce the appropriate notes and beats as dictated by a musical score. Every sound in the video was performed by the robots.


Then there’s this guy…

ECCE Human Robot
This anthropomimetic robot is fascinating.
And more than just a little creepy.

Walking Dead Mad Men
Obvious but decently fun.

More fun?
The Walking Dead parody outtakes.
