Rethinking robotics

Meet Baxter, the robot you don’t program — you just show ‘him’ what to do.

Baxter is an adaptive, collaborative manufacturing robot. It contains cameras, sensors and sophisticated software that enable it to “see” objects, “feel” forces and “understand” tasks. The result is a robot that automatically adapts to changing environments. It knows what you mean and does what you expect. — Rethink Robots
