Camp Peavy writes, "a friend recently sent this Studio 360 audio slideshow of Sparky visiting the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and his DYI telepresence site". Later we got an email from Marque Cornblatt who notes, "SparkyJr.com hosts free software, instructions and printable templates, plus step-by-step videos, members pages, and links to hardware suppliers and other resources.". Rog-a-matic sent a link to an inter-office memo from a new employee at Cyberdyne System. Noriko Kageki of the GetRobo blog has some details on France's new humanoid robot program, called Project Romeo. Martin Haegele writes, "Today, the IFR Statistical Department presents the latest issue of the international robotics statistics and forecasts." While you have to order the full report, you can view the summary (PDF format) as well as the press release. Martin also notes, "robots.net is (very positively) refered to in the yearbook!" While economic problems have slowed the progress of robots in some categories, they still predict big increases in household robots and entertainment/leisure robots for the 2009 to 2012 period.
