Head Amazon has tested a giant humanoid robot

In recent years, more and more developments and technologies that have previously only been seen in science fiction films, are embodied in our lives. And one wonders: is fiction so insightful people, or their vision of the future inspires scientists to create what before and to think it was impossible? But while some people think — what others are doing. Recently, the founder and current head of Amazon Jeff Bezos personally tested four-meter humanoid robot Method-2.

Become a test pilot of the giant robot Method-2 Mr. Bezos had the opportunity during the conference in the field of robotics, machine learning and space exploration «MARS». Controlling the robot is using two manipulators, which repeat exactly the movement of the hands of the operator located in the cabin. From the side it looks quite futuristic and reminds shots of a fantastic film, and noted that Jeff himself, exclaiming «Why do I feel just like Sigourney weaver?», referring to the heroine Sigourney weaver's Ellen Ripley, who in the final film «Alien» 1986 fought the Queen alien with a robot loader, arranged in a similar way.
