Random Robot News Roundup

Nelson Bridwell sent us links to interesting video from last month's Robots and Vision 2007 conference including the Velodyne HDL-64E Lidar system that may be used by several DARPA Urban Challenge teams, the Motoman 2-armed robot, and the Barrett Technology WAM Arm. Charlie Kondek of MS&L wrote, "We're working on a new campaign ... that I thought might be of interest to your readers because it features a robot." Seed Magazine published an article on roboethics recently that includes a little uncredited input from yours truly. Elsewhere, researchers have finally perfected an unbeatable checkers algorithm but Chess and Go are still beyond the grasp of machines. Another reader pointed out an Engadget story with photos of a full-size Gundam robot replica at a Japanese amusement park. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report?
