Random Robot News Roundup

Posted 8 Jun 2007 at 20:24 UTC by steve Share This

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 L├ętourneau 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. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report here? Send 'em our way please.

Mr Woo's #25 Rickshaw and Rickshaw JR robots are great! Even burned down his house making these things! His wife wants to leave him! Yet he keeps building these crazy things! He's unstoppable!
