Here's another load of interesting robot stories from the editor's mailbox. Tom Benson of Readybots writes, "Just wanted to send you our latest announcement (and video) of Readybot". Readybot is a kitchen cleaning bot that we've mention before. Robosoft sent us this news, "ROBOSOFT announces the delivery of three VolcanBuls to Vulcania. These vehicles, without a driver and guided exclusively by GPS, take visitors on a 1km tour through the park to observe the Puy volcanic mountains and to learn about their history." Robots and volcanoes in one places. What more could you want? Michael Somby writes, "I wrote an article discussing software packages available for service robotics applications". The Swirling Brain sent links to a story about robot snowmobiles that help scientists study the melting ice in the Antarctic, a list of the 7 creepiest robots ever, a GEARlog story about Care-O-Bot 3, an io9 report (with photos) on the Pittsburgh Robot 250 Festival that we reported on a while back. He also noticed a cool Wired photo gallery of wooden steampunk robot art by Michael T. Rea, and another of the Vstone Blackbox robot. Oh, and for Battlestar Galactica fans, he spotted a trailer for the new Caprica series. The latest from Roland Piquepaille includes a story on the DelFly autonomous air vehicle, a wire-bending dental robot that will make you smile, and a robot buoy to track oil spills. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
