Here's another weekly dump of robot links from our news inbox. Roland Piquepaille sent a link to his latest blog post about Lord of the Rings special effects people building a robot to help save a 200-million year old reptile species. We also received a link to a YouTube video about Mr. Woo, a Chinese man who builds walking robots of all sizes; some small enough to hold in your, others big enough to ride on. Dominic Létourneau sent a link to Reddy, an emotional humanoid robot from RoboMotio. The Swirling Brain pointed out a Planetary Society story about the next generation Mars Rover, a really creepy-looking child android named CB2, and a Slashdot article about the Hubo FX-1 chairbot, a chair that's also a biped robot. VIA sent us pricing info on the Pico-ITX motherboards that we reported on a couple of months ago. Expect them to retail for $230-260 in the US.
