Best Robot Photos of the Week

Every week we post a collection of the best robot photos submitted by our readers to our flickr group. Why? Because everyone likes to see cool new robots! This week's collection includes, coincidentally, several alcohol related robots. There's a drunk graffiti robot, a Taiwan Beer display robot, even a collection of flasks bearing robot artwork. There's also the usual assortment of walking, flying, and rolling robots, both real and artistic. Want to see your robot here? Post it to flickr and add it to the flickr group. It's easy! If you're not already a flickr member, it's free and easy to sign up. Read on to see the best robot photos of the week!

Buddy by flickr user barberryrose
Prototype for different models - working for the military,providing security for industries, hospitals,etc., and home companion. Can be radio controlled, but the software learns from experience and rewrites it's program to respond to new events. One eye works like a webcam and the other is a weapons spotter. The arms can be outfitted with tools or weapons. (They really work. One arm recedes when the other advances) The power source and the electronics are inside the body which has a coded self-destruct program. Different models would have other equipment.

My son sent a box of parts for assemblages a couple of years ago. I used some for the Bio Mek robot, but I set the "tread" and arms aside for this one. After I drew the design I asked him to send more tread and maybe something neat for eyes. (Thank you, Ted) The body is a beer keg covered in camoflage fabric. I found the head in a thrift store. Right side up it's a desk caddy. I wish this robot really worked! Fun!
