The world famous Where's Waldo? books have sold something like 40 million copies worldwide. One of the keys to its phenomenal success is the easy-to-understand/challenging-to-do nature of their central puzzle. Over and over, readers try to find the red-and-white, bespectacled title character from a crowd of dozens or even hundreds of other characters.
It's always a fun little quest. And there's special thrill to be had out of being the fastest person to find Waldo. Just don't try to do it against this thing...
There's Waldo is the name of a robot that does one thing and one thing, only. Find Waldo.
It uses facial recognition technology to find our hidden hero in seconds. (An average of 4.5 seconds, to be exact.) Sorry, Waldo experts. Though to be fair, it's only 95% accurate, which means that 1 out of 20 times it picks out Wenda, instead. Watch this video to see this bizzaro machine in action!
Ha, it’s funny that a robot can see better then me.
Wow that’s super cool it would take me hours to do what Robo could do in seconds, 4.5 seconds to be exact! 😉
that is so fast I would do that a lot longer
