Random Robot Roundup

Posted 16 Mar 2009 at 18:53 UTC by steve Share This

After I recover from All-Con, ask me about crazy stuff going on in hotel rooms full Storm Troopers at 3am involving Wonder Woman, Aaron Douglas, three roboticists and large amounts of alcohol. Meanwhile, how about some random robot news? David wants you to check out some cool video of the Autonomous Paintball Senty Project. Remember that G1-controlled YARB Robotics Blimp we mentioned a while back? The folks at Surveyor are now selling a fully assembled 66" YARB equipped with the SRV-1 blackfin camera, 802.11bg WiFi, battery, charger, just about everything but helium. Vincent Lopresti of the Spaceminers sent us some video of their progress towards a space elevator robot. They hope to win the Elevator2010 competition but could use few more donations, so help them out if you can. Cassie Bowman of NASA let us know about a cool 2009/2010 Mars Exploration Rover calendar (PDF format) you can print out and hang on your wall. No news roundup would be complete without some Swirling Brain news. He sent us a BBC story on experimental bionic eye surgery, a Guardian story on military applications of nanotechnology, and Telegraph story on the future of robot medics in the army. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
