Random Robot Roundup

Posted 23 Apr 2009 at 21:30 UTC by steve Share This

Ed Okerson sent a Design Engineering article about Billiard bots, remote controlled robots that replace cue sticks. Noriko Kageki wrote to say he's visiting Houston this weekend to cover the All-Earth Ecobot Challenge. We look forward to seeing his full report soon. Andrew from Trossen Robotics sent a link to Hagetaka, his new bipedal combat robot that uses those cool RX-64 servos. Speaking of combat robots, Yan Fortin of the Geeks are Sexy blog sent a link to their story on flamethrower robots. Brett Silcox of the National Space Society wants us to remind everyone that the 28th Annual International Space Development Conference is coming up next month, always a good place to get the latest info on space robotics. Only slightly more down-to-Earth is the news that quantum theory may explain wishful thinking, or more precisely, quantum probability mathematics turns out to explain human decision making. Whether this fuels the fire for a quantum mechanical influence on cognition or supports the idea that something deterministic underlies quantum mechanics is anyone's guess. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
