Here's another load of robot news from our inbox. I'm so far behind on mail that it's not breaking news any more but Lem Fugitt sent us a story from his Robots Dreams website about the selection of the NAO Humanoid to replace the Sony Aibo in RoboCup. Dimitris Xanthopoulos sent us a link to his new website, describing several of his interesting robotics projects. Oliver Meis pointed out Ten High Tech robots that may change the world. If you're interested in autonomous or remotely piloted flying robots, check out the new DIY Drones website. Chad Phillips alerted us to his cool firefighting robot that's based on a Wiimote. You've probably heard about i-SOBOT, the world's smallest commercially available humanoid robot. Robert Oschler set a link to a YouTube video of i-SOBOT in action and an official i-SOBOT marketing video. Meanwhile, reader euProbe pointed out another small humanoid robot. The GadgetMadness folks sent a link to their recent review of the Squawkers McCaw Robot Parrot. This could be just the thing for any robopirates on your gift list. Roland Piquepaille wrote to tell us about his latest blog entry about a UAV that will be studying the polar ice sheets. There's more in the mailbox but that's all I've got time for today. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
