Random Robot Roundup

The Swirling Brain let us know about a cool robot lifeguard named EMILY. Actually it's more of a robot lifejacket that swims through the water on it's own at up to 28mph, locating the distressed swimmers using sonar. And if a robot lifeguard's not enough, how about a Robot Butler? In robot business news, autonomous robot maker MobileRobots, Inc. has been acquired by Adept Technology. Christina Rhoney of the Schiele Museum of Natural History writes, "There will be a robot competition here at the Schiele Museum of Natural History on July 24th, 2010 from 10-4pm.". From the website, it looks like this is an RC combat event, so leave those autonomous robots at home if you don't want them to be traumatized by sights of mechanical destruction. A UK reader writes to tell us about Big Bro-bot, a "robot" that will be menacing contestants in the latest series of the Big Brother reality TV show.
