Random Robot Roundup

Posted 22 Mar 2012 at 21:36 UTC by steve Share This

It's been too long since I've posted a news round up and the editor's mailbox is full! Norri Kageki sent a link to a GetRobo blog post that includes some great video of a tele-operated humanoid boxing robot. Our friends at the new NooTriX blog pointed out a recent post about venture capital and funding initiatives for robot start ups. Speaking of robot funding, the Plasticpals blog says the National Science Foundation has provided a $6M grant that allowed American universities to buy six HUBO 2 humanoid robots from KAIST. And, as the US economy continues to its recovery, Robotics Business Review reports that demand for roboticists grew 44% in Jan 2012. The Swirling Brain spotted a crazy video of a Japanese robot marathon from a year or so back where bipedal robots had to do 422 laps on a 100 meter indoor course.
