    PS; steve

    no worries…..when a supposed ai can perform the mirror test then worry. Dogs can’t perform the perform test (orangutans, dolphins, chimps, elephants, apes and magpies can in that order)

    @Steve: it’s actually simplified – the way the robot is attached to the bar makes it spacially a two-dimensional problem instead of a three dimensional one.

    It’s possible to significantly simplify the problem – if the controller carefully measured its angular velocity and position, it could release the robot at just the right angle to land just right, or very close (in which case all you’d have to do on the fly would be small corrections).

    Also, you can cheat by taking 100 film clips and showing a few that accidentally worked.
