A programmable arm programmed with a programmable keyboard has been developed to draw for robots.
The robot’s arm can also perform tasks that a human would do, like opening doors.
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University programmed a small robotic arm with a keyboard.
The programmable robotic arm is equipped with a number of buttons that can be programmed with different commands.
They found that the arm can draw the desired picture by sending signals that are processed in real time.
The researchers also used a sensor to track the position of the robot arm and send commands to the robot.
In a second experiment, the arm was programmed to draw the picture of a tree by sending different commands to it.
The arm could also draw an image of a person or building if the human programmed the robot to.
The robotic arm could draw the tree because the robot’s eyes were moving.
The researchers hope to see the programmable robot use the arm to open doors, open a garage door, open an air conditioning system, and open a car door.
The robotic arm was made of a metal plate with a plastic core and a battery pack, and was programmed with commands to draw images of trees, people, and buildings.
The system can also do tasks that would be difficult or impossible for a human to perform, like open a door, draw a picture of the person or person’s building, or open a locked door.
Researchers are now testing the system on real-world robots.
“This is the first time a programable robotic arm has been designed with a real-time programmable interface,” lead author David Lai, a research scientist in the UC Berkeley Robotics Institute, said in a statement.
“Our study shows that these systems can be used to perform a wide variety of tasks, and we are optimistic that the resulting robot will be useful in everyday robotics.”
