A tiny article in The Portugal Resident alerted us to the June 12 opening of the Robotarium, a sort of self-contained zoo of autonomous robot plants and animals. The Robotarium is the idea of artist Leonel Moura. According to the website, "The Robotarium is a structure of metal and glass, in which a set of totally autonomous robots will start 'to live', divided in different species and with different characteristics and capabilities. Some robots have wheels and resemble small vehicles similar to the ones that currently are used in space exploration; others will be similar to bugs, small animals and plants; others will be different from any thing that can be found in nature." The Robotarium X webpage includes photos of the exhibit and the individual robots.
