Random Robot Roundup

Posted 8 Aug 2008 at 19:19 UTC by steve Share This

Time for another weekly dump of stories from the editor mailbox. This week Davide Faconti of Pal Technology Robotics writes, "You have already written a story about us. Our team needs to grow in the next month: we need about 8 people joining forces with us to develop the best possible humanoid robot (better than Asimo, hopefully!!!)." So if you've been looking for a chance to work on one of the most advanced humanoid robot projects in the world, here it is. Davide also sent us a YouTube video of REEM-B appearing in front of the crown prince in Abu Dhabi. Mark Miller, aka the Android Man, sent a photo of his latest robot art creation. VIA announced the appointment of Harald Welte as their Open Source liaison. This is good news as it means VIA will be freeing more of their driver code and hardware specs, making life easier for hardware hackers like us. The Swirling Brain wants us to know about The Death of HAL. Roschler sent us links to his Femisapien review and a YouTube Wall-E video. Roland Piquepaille posted in his blog about a project to teach language to robots. And, finally, Trossen Robotics announced their new Robobuilder robot kits. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
