video feature
There's a lot more that goes into editing video than editing still photographs.

This robot was built to perform, and essentially replace, humans in manual labor situations. A video shows the fairly unthreatening – and honestly kinda cute – robot walking in a number of different environments like the snow, a beach and rocky terrain, with surprising poise and ambulatory prowess. The dastardly filmmakers tried their best to trip up the robot’s impressive walking motions by rolling obstacles into its path, but the robot prevailed and stayed upright. The ease with which the robot can navigate treacherous terrain is all the...
