Sergey Popov writes, "Skilligent recently released an updated version of its computer vision system" (PDF format). He also posted a YouTube video of a robot using their software. Steven Frye writes, "Unlucky Fried Kitten has a new musical coming out soon titled The Robot's Revenge. It's about the day that Robots will inevitably take over the world.". The Swirling Brain has been busy sending me more links than I know what to do with including a NewScientistTech story on Capuchin, Stanford's climbing robot, a CNN story on Robosapient:Rebooted, a film starring the WowWee robot, a Wired story on mini-robot spy balloons, io9 stories on Surrogates, an upcoming technology-oriented Bruce Willis moving and a creepy emotional robot, an AfterDowningStreet update on the Pentagon's cyborg insect program, and an article on El-E the human interaction bot (another reader sent links to the Healthcare Robotics lab where El-E was designed). Roland Piquepaille, meanwhile, has posted new stories on firefighting beetle-bots and the 3D-R1 mine mapper we mentioned Tuesday Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
