Tonight Showbotics: Mini Flyers, Jumpen the Skipping Penguin Robot and FedEx SameDay Bot


-This is “Tonight Showbotics.” Let’s meet our first robots. Please welcome Marco Tempest
and his Mini Flyers. [ Cheers and applause ] -♪ Tonight Showbotics ♪ -Pleasure.
Nice to see you, Marco. -Hey. It’s great seeing you.
-Welcome. Please. Thank you for being here. These
are — Are these mini drones? -They’re mini drones, yeah.
Let me set them up. Maybe we can set the mood
a little bit. -Sure. We’ll the set the mood.
Should I — Should I be worried? -Not at all.
-Okay, okay. All right. Interesting there.
so, what do you do with these? -Well, I like to experiment
with advanced technology and kind of find out what we might do with them
in the very near future. So, I thought,
how would it be like if we had tiny flying robots which follow us
around like pets? Probably look like this. Jump. There you go.
Let’s bring up two more. All right.
And they listen to my commands. I can bring them in
just a little bit like this. Just step inside
and go like this. All right. -Wow. Oh, my gosh. That is amazing. -And they can sense where I am. So I can ask this one
to come up. Hey, little guy. Come on. Want to see them
a little closer? -Maybe.
-All right. Come on. There you go.
So, they’re super tiny. If you would like to try, it’s totally safe
to step inside there, right there in the middle. Just, you know, you should be — -Famous — Famous last words. [ Cheers and applause ] -All right. [ Laughs ]
You look great. -I’m frightened out of my mind. -If you want them to spin,
it’s super easy. You just lift your hand
like this. And do a little bit of this.
There you go. [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -That is amazing. -And then let’s make them stop. And as you lift your hand again,
they’re going to land. Just like this.
Wiggle your hand. And that’s it. There you go. ♪♪ -I kick– I kicked
these two right there. -Actually, you know what?
Let’s have them come home. It’s like — Everybody, come on. Everybody,
get up, get up, get up. And no pushing here. Everybody can fit
in the suitcase. -Oh, my gosh.
-There you go. And —
-This is unbelievable. -That’s it.
-Wow! [ Cheers and applause ] Thank you, Marco.
That was fantastic. -Thank you very much. -Head right over there.
I loved it. Wow! -Thank you.
-That was amazing. Let’s meet our next robot.
It came all the way from Japan. Please welcome Yuito, Tomoaki, and Jumpen
the Skipping Penguin robot. [ Cheers and applause ] -♪ Tonight Showbotics ♪ ♪♪ Yuito, nice to see you.
-Nice to meet you. -Nice to meet you, as well. Thank you so much
for being here. What does Jumpen
the Skipping Penguin do? -Yes. He can jump. [ Laughter ] -Does he —
Does he do anything else? -No. [ Laughter ] -Fantastic. All right. Well, let’s get
Jumpen the Skipping Robot. Let’s get him going.
See what he does. Can we…? ♪♪ Gosh. ♪♪ I see all sorts of buttons
back here. Okay. Yep. Let’s see it. -[ Speaking Japanese ] [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Speaking Japanese ] -[ Laughs ] Yes! Yes! That is awesome! [ Cheers and applause ] Can I try it?
-Yes. -I can? -The height is this one. Jump. -Yeah. Can I hold it? -Bend your knee. Like this. Yes. Okay. [ Laughter ] Ready? [ Speaking Japanese ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Wow! Wow! I love it! There you go right there!
Oh, my gosh! Yuito! Tomoaki! The Skipping —
The Skipping Penguin robot. I love it. All right.
You can head over there. Thank you so much.
Do you want help with this guy? ♪♪ That was great.
Thank you very much. Thank you.
Thank you so much for that. You guys are awesome. Guys, it’s time to meet
our last robot. It is a collaboration
between DEKA Research and FedEx. Please welcome Bree Carere
and the FedEx SameDay robot. Bree. Bree Carere. Now, that is the
FedEx SameDay robot. -Yes. We are so excited
to introduce it to you. And to the whole world.
It’s our global unveiling. -Tell me about this thing.
What is it? -Well, the FedEx SameDay Bot is
an autonomous delivery device, and it is going to bring goods
to your home. And we’ve got a package for you
coming now actually. -It’s coming down the hall?
Where is the robot? -Absolutely.
It’s on its way now. -Look at this thing.
This is the future. Oh, my gosh! -Here it comes. -So, this is just going to
be out on the streets and just around, I mean — What can it deliver?
-Well, it can deliver lots. It can deliver anything
from your local restaurant, from a local retailer. I know you’re a parent.
-Yeah. -So, if you’re at home
and you have a sick child and you don’t want
to go to the pharmacy, it can bring the medicine to you
at your door. -And it can deal
with all these elements? -Well, let’s watch it.
I think it will. -This is ins–
This is the future right here. This is unbelievable. -So, it can go on paved
or unpaved surfaces. -So, he’s on the beach
right there. Now he’s off-roading
a little bit. -Through the water.
-Through the water. Come on!
Get up to the top, buddy! Can he do it? Can he do it?
-He can do it. [ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, my gosh.
This is the future right here. This is unbelievable. [ Cheers and applause ] All right. Now, I hear — I hear that
you guys have some big news. -We do. Tomorrow, we have
our national unveiling. We’re going to talk about
all the national retailers that we’ve been partnering with
to design this device. And, again, to bring things right to the front door
of anyone at home. -So, I got a delivery right now.
-You do. -This is pretty cool.
I just put my hand in there? -Please.
-Sure. -Wow. [ Drum roll ] I got a pizza.
-Pizza. [ Cheers and applause ] -And it’s still warm!
-Yes. Awesome. -And it’s still warm.
It’s a good pizza. I’m definitely
going to take that. There’s something else
in there, as well. -I can take this.

  1. Haha FedEx is proud of there robot when Australia Post has already been experimenting with delivery robots (in service) over a year ago

  2. The bots delivering on the streets make no sense b/c you will need thousands of them and then people who walk will be mad b/c they will dominate the sidewalks. It's not practical long term b/c people will destroy them one way or another.

  3. until somebody kicks it over, steals the packages inside or damages it with a baseball bat. this would never work

  4. I won’t support any business using robots. Sorry. 7 BILLION people on this planet. Replacing people shouldn’t be the priority.

  5. You know damn well they ain’t finna fucking have them fedex robots deliver shit to the hood the shit would get stolen as soon as niggas see it

  6. The Japanese robots they've shown are definitely cool, but they've mainly been practical jokes. Japan is the world's leader in robotics, so it's pretty ridiculous that this show hasn't had some crazy Japanese robot yet

  7. I know this was a spoof bit, but I can't believe anyone in the audience actually clapped for any of this moronical bullshit. More game shows, please; less of this.

  8. am I the only one thinking the first one is fake? it was remote controlled from backstage obviously, or it has been programmed to do a series of actions. it doesn't obey to any command from movements. how does the drone notice you're talking to it and not to the next one? and how come when jimmy wingled his finger instead of spinning it, the drones reacted like he was spinning it? and at one point they reacted before jimmy raised his hand. seems like there's something fishy. about the third, it's just a marketing operation, just a phony scam. like all the other promises made in the past by all delivery companies, for more than ten years now, promising that next year we'll see robots everywhere bringing package to homes, but it never happens, not more than the flying drones of amazon or the automated car of kroger. they've done that before and they do it each year, but nothing never comes out of it. the crap seems on the edge of falling all the time, and I can't imagine how it would survive ten minutes in the street. the demonstration is ridiculous… wow, it went through a flat puddle and climbed a little step marked with yellow hatching. I wonder how it will climb my porch when it's cloudy and windy, or how it will cross a busy road, and most of all how it will survive the kids making it fall for fun, knowing that a little push is enough for all the thing to be over, or how it will prevent robbers to break the crap in half with a crowbar. the second one seemed to be the dumbest at first, but it could actually be the most advanced of all.

  9. What impressed me MOST bout the drones was when they packed themselves away (my wife says I can have 'em if they'll do that…)

    And the penguin may look foolish, but the hopping algorithm is a big deal in robotics apparently. Balance, prediction, etc. There's a YT vid. Yoogle it…

  10. But what is the point?

    *and FedEx…how are they not ashamed of their creation? I know standards of delivery have gone way down in recent years but replacing human mail carriers???

  11. First Robots – Super Cool. Loved them. Want my own.
    Second Robot – Meh.
    Third Robot – Scary, in how many jobs that type of robotic use could potentially lose for needy people. Also, watching a FedEx commercial disguised as entertainment was disgusting.

  12. Tyngxanei na krataw to onoma esmeralda to opoio me exoun enhmerwsh oti einai onoma kolis mias paraxwras tou dikous sas xwriou isxyei.’ 👄👄👄👄👄👄👄🤘🇩🇪

  13. I WANT THE FLYING DRONE BABIES SO I CAN LIVE MY CHILDHOOD FANTASIES OF BEING SOME SORT OF GOD THATS FOLLOWED BY WISPS

  14. I don't know about the delivery bots. It will take away lots of jobs. If robots start replacing humans, how will humans have money to buy the products these companies are selling?? The economy won't go anymore.

  15. I laughed when I saw the penguin on the jumping robot. lololol. We Japanese always have to make everything cute. And do penguins even jump?

  16. In the near future those little drones are going to be called Deadlights by the humans who try to escape the robot regime…

  17. So basically everyone in the future will be poor because if everyone is replaced with robots for an example FedEx drivers they don't have a job which means NO MONEY which means everyone will be even more connected to phones tech and forget about puppies when you can have mini flyers no hate think this is cool but this being the future has a lot of downsides

  18. The drones were definetley being controlled off stage still cool but the same command did two different things

  19. Next we know those mini drones start to shoot at you, which For all we know might already exist and the governments are just hiding them from us
