A six-legged skiing robot can be seen in the video below expertly slaloming down a snowy white slope in unbelievable footage of tests undertaken in Shenyang, China this month.

See The Video Below:

The robot — which stands with two legs on each ski and grips ski poles with its middle legs — was developed by experts from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Putting the machine through its paces on both beginner and intermediate slopes, the team showed that the bot can stay upright, turn and avoid crashing into people.

The robot was shown to be capable of skiing at more than feet (10 metres) per second across a (400 metre) -long course on an 18° slope.

In future, the researchers said, the bot might be able to compete in robot skiing competitions — and even patrol mountains and aid with snow-bound rescues.

The skiing automatons was developed by mechanical engineer Gao Feng and colleagues at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

'The robot finished tasks including racing, turning, route planning, obstacle avoidance and human-robot interaction through intelligent sensing and braking control,' the researchers reported.

'In the tests, the robot showed high flexibility and agility,' they added.


Putting the machine through its paces on both beginner and intermediate slopes, the team showed that the bot can stay upright , turn and avoid crashing into people.


'It can be controlled by remote human-computer interaction, which enables it to ski through the crowds and adds the fun of skiing with a robot for the skiers.'

The legged robot research team developed the skiing machine under the call of 'Winter Olympics with Science and Technology'.

The project has been supported by the National Key R&grin Program of China's Ministry of Science and Technology.


'The robot finished tasks including racing, turning, route planning, obstacle avoidance and human-robot interaction through intelligent sensing and braking control,' the researchers reported, adding: 'In the tests, the robot showed high flexibility and agility'


¬'After the Winter Olympics, combining technologies such as 5G and wireless fidelity, this robot can be utilized in machine sports games through remote control,' the researchers said.

'This can blaze a new electronics-machine-sports model and form a tech sense featured entertainment trend for young skiing lovers.'

More information on the skiing robot can be found on the Shanghai Jiao Tong University website.

THE HISTORY OF SNOWMOBILES

The history of the modern day recreational snowmobile is fairly recent, however, travel over snow goes back many years, although man actually flew before he could master snow travel.

While the Wright Brothers flew in 1903, the very first vehicle that was built to go in snow wasn't created until 1908.

That was the Lombard log hauler designed and built in Waterville, Maine. It was a large cumbersome machine that resembled a steam locomotive, only it had a half track design and front skis.

In 1909, a man named O.C. Johnson built an over the snow machine that went on top of the snow, when it worked. It was roughly ten feet long, used a track design, "one lunger engine", and was capable of rudimentary steering.

In 1913, Virgil White, a Ford dealer in New Hampshire, invented a track and ski unit conversion for the Model T Ford.

Early in the winter of 1922, fifteen year old J. Armand Bombardier designed a wind driven sleigh with a Model T engine. This was to be the first of many snowmobiles designed by Bombardier.

One of the most amazing snowmobiles was built in 1924 in Sayner, Wisconsin. It was the invention of Earl Eliason, who called it his motor toboggan.

It was a wooden toboggan fitted with two skis, which were steered with ropes, powered by a 2.5 horsepower Johnson outboard motor, and was pushed by an endless steel cleated track.

It was a front mounted, liquid cooled engine that used a jack shaft. All these are qualities that are credited to modern day snowmobiles.


Mr Eliason patented and manufactured his machine until 1939 when he sold out to FWD Corporation in Canada, who continued to built them until 1960.

It wasn't until 1954 that the modern day recreational snowmobile was born. David Johnson was a partner with Alan and Edgar Hetteen of Polaris Industries.

Mr. Johnson made his design of a snowmobile during a weekend adventure, unknown to the other two partners. This became the very first Polaris, which has remained a leading name in snowmobile design until the present day.

Daniel 12:4
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.


Daniel was told to Shut the books because the technology to bring about the Fulfillment of many of the Endtimes Prophecies was not in place then.

Right before us today are technological advancements that has made the world a Global village.

Everything needed for the Man Lawlessness to be able to control the world is right before us. From Economic , Political, Commercial and technological control, all is in place. There is a ruthless Convergence of all the Signs of the Endtimes right before us.

Live Ready! Anyday, anymoment, The Trumpet of GOD will Blast and all who are Watching, Praying and ready will be taken away by JESUS Christ!
There is no more time! Don't let anyone make you feel there is. Come to JESUS Now'

Amazing..the super powers are developing the world..most nairalanders are still crying religion and end times..

Instead of them to do away with what keep caging them they rather stick to what doesn't favour rather enslave their mindset to believe a fairy tale meant to deceive gullible ones..
