The inbox is still overflowing with robots news, so here's another random news dump, this time entirely from the backlog of the Swirling Brain. We've got a Science Daily story on the possibility of replicating the human brain in some form of machine within 10 years; an engadget story on plasmodium based veggie bots; a Killeen Daily Herald article on the recent Army Robotics Rodeo tests at Fort Hood in Texas; an AirForceTimes story on tube-launched UAVs; a TECH Universe article on parasitic energy stealing robots; an io9 blog on the impact of robots on our economic future; and an IEEE Spectrum article on segmented self-steering airships; a TMCnet.com article on the rise of robotics gaming; a PCWorld story about a LEGO robot that solves Sudoku puzzles; and finally, a truly strange and interesting story about Rohan Jhunjhunwala, who is building robots for elephants at the Oregon Zoo including an apple launching robot to feed them and an elephant piano for the animals to play.
