Robotic arm made redundant by carmaker finds job as a copilot (still needs training)

It dives the aircraft for 20 seconds every time you ask for autobrakes on but the rest is fine.

Give it a vacuum nozzle, and you've got the aero equivalent of the Roomba.

This is a piece of equipment that clearly defines the word "useless."

But the video is really good, from a technical point of view.

The video is hi-def, but the subject matter should have stayed sequestered for a long while.

I thought the hilarious thing was that it "inadvertently" pushes the control wheel for 20 seconds while it sets the autobreak on, but no one seems to notice that! (not to mention the fact itself that it takes it 20 seconds to set the autobrake on)
