The Shadow Robot Company has issued a press release (PDF format) about their new project to develop robotics technology for rehabilitation of patients suffering from chronic pain. Randy Dumse of New Micros, Inc. sent us links to several stories including an Electronic Design story on Robot Cars and a PhysOrg story on the MIT entry in the upcoming DARPA Urban Challenge. Randy also noticed a PhysOrg article about the debut of Nano Soccer at the 2007 Robocup. Meanwhile, Roland Piquepaille reported on two more robot stories in his blog: a 1mm medical robot and a story on cyborg insects (also see our previous story on the cyborg bugs). And The Swirling Brain has been swirling with stories too, including a Fox news story on a Taser-equipped Packbot, and a tiny robot at a Japanese toy show. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
