We're one step closer to C3P0 -- or the Terminator, depending on who you ask.
Roboray, the latest humanoid robot from Samsung, has a new trick up its sleeve. Thanks to new visual recognition software developed at the University of Bristol, the automaton can build real-time, 3D visual maps of its environment. The new software lets Roboray look at its surroundings and create a map of them as it moves -- or as things move around it -- and retain that information to remember where it has been before, which brings us one step closer to having autonomous robots walking around. If you're a fan of that idea, it's great news! If you're not, commence being terrified...now.
