Mejoran al robot que hace parkour y luce más perturbador que nunca

Mejoran al robot que hace parkour y luce más perturbador que nunca
Ha pasado medio año desde que los ingenieros de la UC Berkeley nos presentaron su primer prototipo del robot Salto, un pequeño autómata capaz de brincar entre paredes como todo un maestro acróbata del parkour. Ahora, sus creadores han presentado la nueva versión del robot: Salto-1P, el cual es capaz de realizar su saltos de manera más ágil, con mayor altura y además controlar la trayectoria de su descenso girando en el aire durante sus movimientos…

Early AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Benchmarks Surface
AMD’s Radeon RX Vega GPU is the company’s most significant consumer launch in at least two years. High-end consumer cards don’t own the mass market and they aren’t as significant a profit center as professional GPUs, but they’re important halo products in their own right. One user has begun posting 3D benchmark results for the new GPU — but they need to be taken with a huge grain of salt…
