Random Robot Roundup

Posted 19 Feb 2011 at 03:14 UTC by steve Share This

This week's roundup starts with a reminder about the upcoming World Premier of Bots High, Joey Daoud's documentary about high school students participating in Battlebots. If you're into remote controlled machines smashing each other, check it out. There's an interesting Robotics Trends article on an AI control system for spacecraft called, no not HAL, but sysbrain. Alexey Burbin of Russia emailed to let us know about his cool Transformable Worm drive for amphibious robots. Pablo Rivera wrote to let us know about his new project, the International Programming Club; their goal is to teach more people programming and they plan a robot programming tutorial series. Finally, no roundup is complete with out some news from The Swirling Brain. This week he sent us a Singularity Hub story on the X-47B UAV, a PopSci article about a hamster with a cat-proof robot exo-skeleton, and an Escapist article about California robot spotted buying scones in a local coffee shop.
