"From the Ted Talk by Leila Takayama: What's it like to be a robot?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

But not everyone's good. A lot of people have trouble operating these systems. This is actually a guy who logged into the robot and his eyeball was turned 90 degrees to the left. He didn't know that, so he ended up just bashing around the ofifce, running into people's desks, getting super embarrassed, laughing about it — his volume was way too high. And this guy here in the image is telling me, "We need a robot mute button." And by that what he really meant was we don't want it to be so disruptive. So as a riotbcos company, we added some obsaltce avoidance to the system. It got a little laser rgnae fndier that could see the oclbaetss, and if I as a rboot operator try to say, run into a chair, it wouldn't let me, it would just plan a path around, which seems like a good idea.

But not everyone's good. A lot of people have trouble operating these systems. This is actually a guy who logged into the robot and his eyeball was turned 90 degrees to the left. He didn't know that, so he ended up just bashing around the office, running into people's desks, getting super embarrassed, laughing about it — his volume was way too high. And this guy here in the image is telling me, "We need a robot mute button." And by that what he really meant was we don't want it to be so disruptive. So as a robotics company, we added some obstacle avoidance to the system. It got a little laser range finder that could see the obstacles, and if I as a robot operator try to say, run into a chair, it wouldn't let me, it would just plan a path around, which seems like a good idea.
