PC World has posted online an article by Erik Hellweg written for the December print edition of Digital World. The article gives a broad overview of the state of the robotics world. It mentions robots of every type from the latest commercially available robots like the RoboSapien and Roomba, to DARPA Grand Challenge robots, and even mentions some well known robots built by members of robot groups like the DPRG. It's good to see an article that presents hobby robot builders evenly aside commercial products. In some cases, I think the amateurs are still a bit ahead but I wonder how long that will last.
