In a nutshell, a robot arm wielding a tube of plastic goo fashioned a cup with a handle to move water from one bucket to another. The only interesting thing is that the robot was never programmed to make a specific tool, it was given the task of moving the water, and through trial and error eventually got it right.
This is a fascinating video! Thanks for sharing the link - the topic is very interesting. The linked article is misleading, though. It implies that the robot planned what to do by itself, but it actually had human direction. The researchers are trying to make robots that make decisions for themselves, however, which should make the future very interesting!. http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/19/robo … with-glue/
