Erico Guizzo of IEEE Spectrum writes, "this iRobot project was discussed before at, so I thought readers might want to finally see the iRobot morphing robot blob in action". Rachelle Wise emailed saying, "A Minnesota engineering student created this robot that plays Guitar Hero! There's a YouTube video of it playing. The robot is named Roxanne. :)" Rog-a-matic spotted an interesting design concept for a robotic wheelchair. He also found this bolt-on kit to simplify turning any vehicle into an autonomous robot. Robodave found a Omnizero.9, "Pretty cool homebuilt biped transformer robot". He also sent a link to Omnizero.9's website. Remember that Power Loader exoskeleton suit that Sigourney Weaver used in the film, Aliens? Pink Tentacle has a story with video on a very similar real-life exoskeleton being developed in Kyoto, Japan. Closer to home, the AssemblyBlog posted a report on robot agriculture developments.
