Finally, we're building robots of the future

Check out this amazing article about how researchers have created a robot that is actually aware of damage, and can evaluate the damage, reinternalize it's new image and limitations, and then adapt to work around the damage. They said that they shortened one of its legs, and it was able to readjust its gait to keep walking. Pretty incredible stuff -- the very first step towards self-awareness.
