The Robots Are Coming For Us… By Ski

After they’ve conquered walking, running and stair climbing (sort of), the robots have one more way to get around once they’ve overrun the human race – by ski.

Researchers from the University of Manitoba in Canada have created Jennifer – the snow-friendly robot. She has mastered cross-country and alpine skiing, with the ability to cross a number of snow types, including firm, wet and fluffy snow. Jennifer can also turn left and right, as well as come to a stop when she’s sliding down a hill at speed.

Despite no longer being able to hide from the robots in what we thought were remote snowy mountains, Jennifer is actually quite a feat of engineering, being certainly much better at skiing than myself.
