Random Robot Roundup

Posted 2 Dec 2009 at 20:28 UTC by steve Share This

This week's roundup start off with a public service announcement. The Chase Community Giving project is donating $25,000 to each of 100 local community non-profit groups selected by Facebook users. Each user gets 20 votes to cast for their favorite groups. Please cast one of your votes for my favorite, the Dallas Personal Robotics Group (just click that big button that says "Vote for Charity"!). In other robot news, the folks at Plastic Pals note that KAIST's full-size human robot has become only the third such robot capable of running. Vincent Lopresti (of the Spaceminers) wrote to tell us that he's started a project called Land Walker to empower disabled wheelchair users with robotic legs. Matt Smith brings news of a new robot company called Robot Add-ons, started by ex-iRobot engineers, that will sell after market accessories for the Roomba. Another Matt, this time Matt Fisher of KumoTech, tells us robots from his company are featured at a new exhibit in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.
