    The second robot was rocking some awesome clothing tbh

  3. Big_Simba February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I don’t know about shitty, i mean that first one did better than I would do

  4. veriix February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    That robot french fried when he was supposed to pizza, if you french fry when you should pizza, you’re gonna have a bad time.

    What they’re saying is:

    “This is robot skiing and this is… Uh, what do you think of the technique?”

    “Peculiar”

    “I’m glad… – He’s forgetting to put his stick down first when turning, that’s the only downside. Now he loses his stick again.”

    “Oh look, those are at least wearing a little ol’ ski suit”

    “You’re not a bad skier yourself, but this is kind of – “

    THEY’RE TRYING THEIR BEST

  7. Lostonpurpose87 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Clearly Boston Dynamics wasn’t allowed to compete.

  8. agrady262 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    They did better than I would have.

  9. jalkazar February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    This is pretty impressive imho!

  10. Kalelolz February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Man Tokyo games are going to be fucking insane

  11. JaxTheHobo February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I absolutely adore shitty robots, mostly because it’ll be awesome to see the transition to fully capable robots that could extinguish the human race in an instant.

    “Now they are laughing, soon they shall not.”🤖

    Gif ended before the snowman came in and ate him.

  14. pieman7414 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    We laugh now, but they’re watching. Always watching.

  15. psycho1social February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I don’t feel entitled to call that robot shitty, it skis better than me

  16. DogsTrippingOnAcid February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Imagine a shitty robot Olympics. Geez, that would be hilarious to watch

  17. Muluka February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Funniest shit i’ve seen all day

  18. MadMonk67 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I don’t know. That’s a pretty good approximation of someone like me skiing after I’ve had a few.

  19. ryavco February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Boston Dynamics is really getting good.

  20. awakenlive February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Boston Dynamics needs to enter this.

  21. auchnureinmensch February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    You shouldn’t make fun of them. Who do you think will be first to be terminated once the machines take over.

  22. KnockingNeo February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Yea but the military has the ones that mastered skiing *and* have mounted machine guns

  23. 1WordAllLowercase February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I just know I’m gonna see this video again in thirty years when robots have broken every Olympic record in every sport. “TIL robots first competed in the Olympics in 2018 — not as good as today!”

  24. electricp0ww0w February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I proper belly laughed at the second one. Thanks op, I needed that.

  25. Gravyrobber9000 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Robot Wars was ok but Shitty Robot Wars could be great!

  26. TotallyNotKeanu February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Like they are bits of metal and plastic and wires but when that little guy falls over I wanna run and make sure he didn’t get a boo boo.

  27. Blovnt February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Second dude doesn’t even try or care.

  28. TEKNOC February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Someday historians will look back at this moment and lol

  29. DEMACIAA February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I would pay good money to attend a live shitty robot olympics

  30. S4MH41N February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    you know it’s the future when even the robots have a Special Olympics

  31. goonergoonet February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I feel bad for the robots, they are obviously not ready.

  32. TheMightyBarackObama February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    personally i cant wait till people are removed from the Olympics entirely. the athletes are too different from each other. nations are clearly divided in an event that is about unity. so it should be all robots.

  33. StuffyOldGit February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    That’s the British Olympic team, silly.

  34. thatgerhard February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    We should have a robot olympics that happens right after the normal olympics where we can showcase the best robots we have competing against each other in events.

  35. Rotten__ February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    FELLOW HUMANS, PLEASE SUPPORT US HUMANS AT BOSTON DYNAMICS. WE ARE A COMPANY RUN ENTIRELY BY HUMANS TO FURTHER THE DEVELOPMENT OF ~~A SUPERIOR RACE OF~~ ROBOTS

  36. I_love_the_USA February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I will remember to avoid T2 by going to the snow, thanks!

  37. awesomemanswag February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Sometimes i worry that the robots will take over someday. Then i see videos like these and realize everything’s gonna be alright.

  38. RadioactiveArrow February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    It would be fun watching the robots get a little bit better every year, until they’re eventually better than the professional athletes and realize that human life is inferior and needs to be exterminated.

  39. silversly5 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    They look like midgets, drunkenly trying to navigate the slalom while uncannily stiff due to constipation.

  40. iam_a_waterjug February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I want these robots in the Mario and sonic version.

  41. chocopuddin39 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Sure this is impressive, but what if they need to open a door?

  42. 03Badger February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I was hoping this was a video of the North Korean cheerleaders

  43. SplinteredCells February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    We’ve taught them to shoot, ski, and open doors… Decathlon for Skynet?

  44. poppaman February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    A ski hill I went to as a kid did something similar, they would hold “Dummy skiing” contests and people would dress up their little dummies to see whose could get the furthest down the hill.

    I guess automation is taking even more jobs, now

  45. EvilStevilTheKenevil February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Just you wait: in 10 years time they’ll be beating the best of us.

  46. Aizro- February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    We mock them now, but one day.. ONE DAY.

  47. BillDino February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    How many years till we look back and think “holy shit we’ve come far with robots”?

  48. zetzuei February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Where’s Boston Dynamic representative?

  49. Imaoldmanok February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Are those the only think thr russians could get that hadn’t been doping?

  50. NaturesGirl February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    They ski better than I *ever* could!

  51. khalfrodo34 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    TIL robots are better at skiing than I am.

  52. 2Bangz2 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Confident AI will not be taking over the world soon now

  53. McFondlebutt February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Decoy robots designed to draw attention away from actual synth Olympians. Just you wait until the first ‘openly synth’ Olympian comes out. By then it will be too late.

    Same vein as ‘sky writing’. Yeah, bullshit. You made your chemtrails say words. Whoopty-fucking-doo.

    Fluoride is good for your teeth? Yeah, you’ll believe that after it allows them to control your thoughts.

  54. dcsbjj February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    I don’t get it, they’re skiiing as well as I do

  55. Bucknbull February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Hey they are trying their best

  56. Rrg9182 February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    After seeing the Boston Dynamics vid, this will help me sleep better tonight……being reminded not all robots are ready to murder me in my sleep.

  57. kellendontcare February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    First one I was like hey…that’s not so bad.

    Second one. Ultimate fail.

  58. absolutepaul February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    You see he french fried when we should of pizza’d

  59. redcapmilk February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Serious question: Is this a high school competition?

  60. ArchwayLemonCookie February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Laugh as you may. I wonder if this could help the ratings for the Olympics.

  61. ChampionReborn February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Today, shitty robots, tomorrow, the end of the world

  62. GregTheMad February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Haha, the first uses a Stereolabs Zed camera, best stereo camera on the market. It has really good SLAM build in, only downside is that it requires CUDA cores to run. That said it’s almost cheating using this.

  63. sokolske February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    That was a dope 180 switch that robot was trying to do.

  64. aqdromedas February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    They’re doing their best…

  65. boozaman February 13, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Meh. I played that game on Atari when I was a kid.
