The Bowling Ball-Tossing Industrial Robot

Wed, 10/14/2009 - 10:23am

Innovation is key to our industry, so here at IMPO we like to showcase ways that individuals and companies are doing something unique with the tools that get used every day to make the products we all know and love, even if they're a little off-beat.

The guys from Mana Energy Potions program a KUKA industrial robot to hurl heavy objects like a medieval trebuchet. They start off with tossing a few bowling balls through the window of an old RV, and end up launching a few armfuls of beer cans afterwards. Stick around to the finale — it's packing some heat.
