If properly utilised, Digit is conceptually a revolutionary robot. With the ability to carry up to 40 pounds, the unit (there’s that word again) has limitless applications for those with disabilities and can maintain balance whilst travelling over uneven terrain. It is currently capable of making the journey from the car to the door using data retrieved from the car’s automation and can even work out the optimum route with the information at hand.
Whilst the machine is no doubt extremely advanced, we do hope that they can find a way to soften its world-ending-insect-looking design.
