At the DARPA Robotics Challenge, We Saw a Lot of Robots Fall Over

Friday marked Day one of the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals, in which elite robots from around the world faced off to compete for £2.29 million in prizes. We saw some of humanity’s finest bots drive vehicles, remove rubble, cut through walls and climb up stairs.

We also saw a lot of robots fall over. IEEE Spectrum captured the magic.
