- Goals and philosophy
(If you want to see the videos you will need to download
them as well. I've added several to what I showed in lecture.)
FRIDA assembling E-Stop (Lund University)
Vicki the chimpanzee videos:
v1_4 v26_4 v3_3
v4_3 v5_4 v7_4
Julia Child SlicingPotato
For the robotic origami video, YouTube "robotic origami"
I did not upload the cup-stacking video -- too big.
Nor the Michael Moschen video, for copyright reasons.

Some ape and monkey stuff I've collected:
- Termite fishing
- Notes on chimp vs human genome. Locomotion
implications of Lucy's butt. Marzke interview touching on chimp throwing
and Lucy throwing.
- Humans vs baboons I.
- Humans vs baboons II.
- Monkeys vs humans I.
- Monkeys vs humans II.
