While the rest of the world is busy noticing all the new cameras, games, and home theater gadgets at CES this year, JETRO wants us to remind you about their JETRO Robotics Zone at CES featuring Japanese consumer robots now available in the US including the new I-Fairy receptionist (PDF format), Paro the therapeutic seal robot, and robot dinosaurs from Kokoro. The Swirling Brain ran across, a website that provides online robot simulations similar to the old Unix crobots from the 1980s. He also sent links to an io9 article on the Mahru III robot, a story on hummingbot, a two million dollar Japanese flying robot the size of a hummingbird, and a Wired article on the need for AI that can connect the dots to predict terrorism. Lastly, Matt Musick writes, "I know you briefly covered Owens a few years back and I wanted to pass along our new video interview with him." He's referring to Carlos Owens from Alaska, who built the giant, flamethrower equipped, exoskeleton that we reported on in 2004.
