Here are a few news items to toss out for your weekend viewing pleasure. Spirit and Opportunity haven gotten a two year funding extension to continue their incredible trek across the red planet. Together they have racked up almost 12 miles of travel! A couple of stories through Slashdot include an article detailing efficiencies of Robot-run warehouses, and an article about progress in robot learning at Fudan University. Our friends at medGadget are keeping us up to date on robots in the medical field including the NeuroArm robot that performs MRI-guided neurosurgery, and the zero-gravity surgical robot software developed by SRI. On a final note, Woot continues to appeal to robot lovers everywhere by offering Wowwee Roboquads for $50.
