Wednesday films: Chef, phlebotomist, and dubstep robots

15 Apr

Three short videos for your Wednesday enjoyment! The first is a cute musical film (wait for the drop).


Dubstep Dispute from Fluxel Media on Vimeo.

The next two are recently released robotic news videos. One is for a robot chef, or at least, an automated kitchen system that uses robotic arms. I don’t see it being practical, but the suspended robot arms are similar to something in a story I’m writing. The last video is for a robotic phlebotomist. I saw an article suggesting that this would be good for people with fear of needles. No, it would not be!  Dear heavens. I have a fainting response to needles and the slow process of holding my arm in place and then the machine putting in the line would be awful.

    The robot phlebotomist looks reassuring to me, given that it finds the vein with an x-ray (?). Mine are sometimes hard to find the traditional way and it makes me nervous when they try to poke around to access it. The robot chef seems extremely superfluous in its current state. Dubstep Dispute made me laugh!

      I’ve had some bad pokes as well, though I have very clear veins, but I think I’d be passed out on the floor by the time the robot jabbed me!
