The iCub's shoulder, how it should not look

So the last two days we had the IM-CLeVeR Review Meeting here in Lugano and I helped showing some of the demos to the roughly 50 people involved in the project. As usual with robotics demonstration everything that could went wrong, and while reseting the software and homing the iCub, its shoulder decided to pop, as you can see on the picture.

Broken Shoulder in Detail

Luckily it seems like just the tendons are popped out of their places on the shoulder, so no ripping of a cables or breaking of the hardware. So now we are back to cleaning up and repairing the robot.
