Robots: Getting Girls Engaged in Robotics
Earlier this year, the Robots Podcast team came across a very interesting story. It was about two, 17 year old twin sisters who have started their own robotics outreach group. The story about the Tipperman sisters got us curious. What kind of robotics outreach activities are out there to inspire children with robotics? Do any of these activities make a difference in getting more girls to be interested in robotics? In this episode, AJung conducted a series of three interviews. She spoke to the Tipperman sisters to find out more about their activities, spoke with Ross Mead, a PhD student who has years of experience organizing robotics events and inspiring young minds, and with Professor Elizabeth Croft, a roboticist who also happens to study the topic of women in science, technology, engineering and math.
Robots: Quest for Computer Vision
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Peter Corke, the professor of robotic vision at Queensland University of Technology, about computer vision. They speak about the history and future of computer vision, and Peter's upcoming Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Edgars Rozentals, who is the CEO and Founder of Helico Aerospace Industries. They talk about Helico's upcoming product, 'AirDog', which is an autonomous quadrocopter that is used to record video of action sports.
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews John Romanishin from MIT, about his project 'M-Blocks'. M-Blocks are small cubes with no exterior moving parts that can propel themselves forward, jump on top of each other, and snap together to form arbitrary shapes.
In this episode, Audrow Nash interviews Max Rheiner from Zurich University, about his bird-flight simulator 'Birdly'. The participant can control the simulator with his hands and arms, which directly correlates to the wings and the primary feathers of the bird. Visualized through head-mounted display (Oculus Rift) the participant is embedded in a virtual landscape where his body is the body of a Red Kite.
