The Trossen Robotics Team writes, "We haven't even announced the new TRC Project Contest, yet our creative members are already entering some incredible projects!" Behold the Lego NTX Autonomous Wall-E Robot. reader Bill Rogers sent us a Slate story on robots replacing human umpires and referees in sports and a Reuters video about an exoskeleton for paraplegics. Johan Tegin let us know about KTHand, a project to develop a cost efficient robotic hand for research use. We also heard from Honey and Dick, two robots from the future who like music and beam a podcast into the past as a science project. So, if you're looking for a podcast of independent music hosted by two cantankerous and possibly offensive robots, check out Jukebox Review. The Swirling Brain let us know about a pool playing robot, a robotic bicycle parking garage, a slashdot article on the Willow Garage open source humanoid robot, a 50ft robot spider, a Wired update on Stanford's robot chopper, and a robot that feels without touching. Roland Piquepaille sent links to his latest blog posts on robot phriends, robotic tuna, and robot rats. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
