Random Robot Roundup

Posted 16 Nov 2011 at 19:19 UTC by steve Share This

Time to empty out the editor's mailbox again. Jeremie sent a link to a blog post that will help you build your own Tankbot. Karim sent news of Google's robot overlords, which turn out to be algorithmically managed humans. Wesley let us know that if you're in Brazil and need educational robots, you should check out a company called XBot. We also heard from Sean about the BeRobot, which the Guiness Book of World Records says is the smallest humanoid robot around. At $599 USD though the BeRobot price may not be the smallest! VIA sends news of the first ever dual-core Pico-ITX board, the EPIA P900. Still too big to fit in a BeRobot but maybe just the thing for your next robot? Lastly, artist and roboticist Mark Miller (aka The Android Man) sent a link to video of his semi-autonomous boxing robots. With all the hype of the recent movie, Real Steel, they now seem more relevant than ever. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please. And don't forget to follow us on twitter.
