Founder of SpaceX and Hyper Tube, Elon Musk, has once again arrested the attention of the virtual reality industry. This time he’s talking robots. OpenAI, another Musk gem, revealed the new system this month–a robot that can learn to perform human tasks with VR. The robot replicates actions first demonstrated by a human who’s wearing an HTC Vive headset. Equipped with a camera and two neural networks, the robot is “aware” of its surroundings and can correlate its movements with what it is seeing the human do. While the technology at this stage is relegated to simple tasks, OpenAI aims to develop more complex capabilities.
