Along the same lines, he found another link to a toy humanoid robot that transforms from a legged robot to a wheeled robot. He also sent us a Jerusalem Post story on computerized clothes that can turn anyone into a cyborg linked to a network of their friends or coworkers. In other news, there will be a gathering of over 30 scientists in Europe to discuss methods of measuring human emotions, with the intention of improving emotional interaction between humans and robots. The International Herald Tribune posted yet another story on using robots to solve the problems of Japan's rapidly growing elderly population.
