Random Robot Roundup

Posted 24 Feb 2009 at 17:31 UTC by steve Share This

We're overdue for a roundup, so here it is. Colby Magazine posted an interview with Bruce Maxwell, a programmer and roboticist. He talks about his humanoid robot project, robot competitions, and his joint robot-avatar project with William Smart, now know as the Maxwell-Smart Project. It looks like another RoboBusiness conference is in the works for the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA on April 15-16, 2009. Yan Fortin of the Geeks are Sexy blog let us know about a story they've posted on the Austin Robot Group's giant Ponginator robot. This is the same weapon of mass ping-pong destruction that we spotted at the Austin Maker Faire. The Swirling Brain reports that robots have mastered walking on sand, killing trees, and replacing you at work when you're sick. He also found this nifty DIY Segway replacement based on an Atmel ATMega16 running Open Source software. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
