Random Robot News Roundup

Sorry for the news slowdown folks! Let's see if we can get things rolling again by cleaning out the editor's inbox. Tom Whitwell of the Times Online sent a link to their list of The 50 Greatest Movie Robots. To help differentiate their list from the many others out there, they also classify each robot on a scale of 1 to 10 in four different categories: plausibility, coolness, dangerousness, and comedy value. The Swirling Brain sent us a Telegraph UK story on the discovery of a way to reverse the Casimir effect. This could lead to something called Quantumm Levitation and near frictionless MEMS and nano-scale machines. Charlie Kondek sent us two more YouTube marketing videos featuring fembots. Sergey Popov let us know about Skilligent's proprietary, off-the-shelf robot learning software. Finally, we also got a link to a Time/CNN photo gallery of RoboCup 2007. For more and better RoboCup 2007 photos, try flickr. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
