Random Robot Roundup

Posted 8 Jun 2009 at 16:00 UTC by steve Share This

I'm feeling random this morning, so lets do a robot news roundup. The spaceminers Space Elevator team let us know they've set up fund raising pages at KickStarter and fundable, so a send a few bucks their way if you can. Doug Emes pointed out a cnet photo gallery of robots making themselves at home. The Carnegie Science Center sent us a new press kit (PDF format) on their roboworld exhibit as well a link to their roboworld flickr gallery. We've reported from time to time on robot floats used by oceanographers to study the sea, now Duke University and WHOI report RAFOS floats have significantly advanced our understanding of Atlantic ocean circulation and should facilitate improved global climate simulations. Carlos Montesinos reports that beta testing is starting for the humanoid robot, Nao, built by French company Aldebaran Robotics. Does your robot need testing? Why not haul it out to the International RoboGames in San Francisco June 12-14th. Even if you don't have a robot, show up and watch the fun. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please. And don't forget to follow us on twitter.
