Other questions for 2030:








These humanoid robots must meet specific criteria to be counted towards this total. Each robot must be bipedal, walking upright on two legs in a manner that broadly resembles human walking. Additionally, each robot must be equipped with hands capable of manipulating objects. The hands should have fingers or similar appendages, allowing them to grip, hold, and interact with various items. Each robot must be capable of autonomous function without external power for a duration of at least 1 hour in order to qualify in the context of this question.

Each robot must be between 1.25 and 3 meters tall when standing up, and weigh between 25 and 500 kg. Furthermore, each robot must be able to lift a 5kg box off the floor and walk with it for 10 meters in order to qualify.

@SimoneRomeo hadn't seen those! Is there a video somewhere of them?

@RemNi it's there in the article. I didn't even know about UBTech before. I was also watching a Peter Diamandis podcast yesterday claiming that figure is planning 2m robots by 2030. Quite crazy. Let's see how all this develops.

@SimoneRomeo I see video screenshots and a reference to a video shared on weibo, but not a video in the article. Is it just me?

@RemNi it's there. Actually it didn't show to me at first, but try to click at that spot

@SimoneRomeo ah thanks. Managed to get it to load on my phone but not on desktop. Looks good!

@SimoneRomeo Found the video (or a similar one) on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCt7qPpTt-g
They look much more wobbly in motion :)

Interesting idea, wonder if it will be profitable.
