Random Robot Roundup

Posted 15 Jan 2010 at 19:57 UTC by steve Share This

Reader Carlos Montesinos noticed that Evolution Robotics is now selling their own floor cleaning robot called Mint, a little square robot that appears to clean the floor by pushing a paper towel around. Our friends at Plastic Pals posted a story with some video of the Fujitsu ENON robot working a crowd. Rog-a-matic was amused by the artist's take on robot waste in an ad for electro-recycling. 3 Quarks Daily has a short piece on Obama's progress in reversing what some have called the Bush administration's war on science. The short version is: things are looking up but there's a long way to go. Finally, Travis Deyle writes, "I thought you might find this interesting. It's a robot that uses electrostatic field sensing (much like those off-the-shelf capacitance sensors) to find and plug itself into wall outlets." We also reported on the self-plugging Willow Garage robot recently. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
