Random Robot Roundup

Posted 1 Apr 2008 at 17:03 UTC by steve Share This

Daniel Casner of Anybots sent us links to the latest video of Dextor, the walking robot with a dynamic gait that we posted about last year. Mark Norman of Merlin Systems Corp. Ltd sent us some video of their 2m tall robosnake that uses 28 Merlin Air Muscles. Roland Piquepaille let us know about his latest blog posts on BAS UAVs over Antarctica (see our post on these also!), the world's biggest subsea robot, and a new kind of cognitive autonomous robots. Meanwhile, The Swirling Brain has deluged us with more robots stories than I can cram into this week's posting including info on "two kickass giant robots movies we want to see right now" , a story on interesting new discoveries about the evolutionary adaptations of geckos that have intrigued robot builders, a plan by the DOD to create an artificial reality mirror of the entire Earth, and an amusing look at the robot-related scandals of the future. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
