The mailbox has been overflowing with robots news. Jimmy Atkinson writes, I just posted a how-to guide to transforming oneself into a cyborg over here at Free Geekery. Roland Piquepaille sent us links to his latest blog posts about a globetrotting robot that's been exploring the oceans of the world and a robotic arm scanning a manuscript of Homer's Iliad to help create a high-resolution, 3D, virtual book from the ancient parchment. The Swirling Brain sent us links to a Slashdot story on DARPA's LANdroid army and a TechDigest post about Roboquad spider robot. Last, there was a release announcement for the latest version of Fast Genetic Algorithm, a C++ library that provides " a simple yet powerful implementation of a general genetic algorithm, and provides many types of crossover and selection procedures." The library is Free Software licensed under the GNU LGPL. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report here? Send 'em our way please.
