The internet is absolutely baffled after watching a video of a rickshaw being pulled by a robot as the clip has gone viral on social media. Supriya Sahu IAS shared the 25-second clip on Twitter and it has generated a discussion in the comments section of the post.
WHAT IS THE VIRAL VIDEO ALL ABOUT?
As seen in the video, a man boarded the robot-driven rickshaw and introduced people to the concept of the vehicle. Thereafter, he instructed the ‘robot dog’ to take him to the market. “Oh, look at him settling into it. My good man, to the market,” he said as the robot began its journey. The man was absolutely astonished and so are we.
The clip was at first posted on special effect designer Adam Savage’s official YouTube channel in February.
“Future Rickshaws! See this amazing prototype of a robot-driven rickshaw carriage,” Supriya Sahu said in the caption of the post.
