Lindsey Carlin sent a link to an Innovation First news release describing their latest products, a line of tiny autonomous robots called HEXBUGs that look like they were inspired by BEAM robots and bristlebots. Roschler has written an update on the rise and fall (and resurrection) of the Pleo. Noriko Kageki of GetRobo has posted some new info on Stanford's autonomous car. David Wilson sent a YouTube link showing the roboseed, the MAV monocopter based on a Samara or maple seed. The Swirling Brain sent us a full brain dump of new robot links including a GadgetReview post on Amio, a PinkTentacle post on a robot that simulates the symptoms of H1N1 flu, a PopSci article on a robot skier, a story on Georgia Tech's robot cat that attempts to display emotional states in a way humans recognize, and finally a CNET story on SnackBot, a CMU robot designed to navigate a crowd dispensing snacks.
