DERPA: Video Shows Robots Failing Badly at DARPA Challenge

Rest easy that when the robot apocalypse descends upon us, the only safety measure you should need is to hide behind a door. At least that seems to be the case going by video released of the ‘fails’ that occurred during Day 1 of the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals. Robots don’t just seem to faint at the sight of doors, in some cases (e.g. 0:56) they seem to self-terminate due to some sort of door-inspired existential despair.

Best YouTube comment? “DERPA”.
