Technological innovation meets Chanukah tradition

This video from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology's department of education in science and technology showed up on our newsfeed and gave us such a sense of awe and wonder that we just had to share it with you our followers.

These three humanoid robots, programmed by Grade 10 students at Ort High School in Kiryat Bialik, expertly execute the serving of a latke, the pouring of shemen (oil) and lighting a chanukiyah. Their construction was supervised by Dan Cuperman of the Center for Robotics and Digital Technology Education (CRDTE).

Simply marvellous.
