Ok, let's see if we can get the robot news rolling again. A dump of the editor's inbox seems like a good place to start, so here we go. Ed Okerson wrote to tell us about swarms of solar microbots. Travis Deyle let us know that these are the same robots we reported on back in 2005 and pointed out a article with the latest news about them. Norri Kageki posted an interesting interview with former Ugobe CTO John Sosoka, who talks about his new companies Vita Robotica and Pulse Robotics. Another reader, Doug Emes, let us know about a new robotics website called that will be of interest to R2 replica builders. Rog-a-matic says you should check out a Popular Mechanics article on farm robots, the Motoman SDA10 assembly robot video over at, and an art exhibit at the Conduit Gallery in Dallas, TX that, while not robot related, is definitely geek-worthy: Dan McPharlin's miniature analog synthesizers. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please. And don't forget to follow us on twitter.
