Random Robot Roundup

Posted 11 Nov 2010 at 17:16 UTC by steve Share This

By popular demand, another robot news roundup is here. First up is news from our friend William Cox. You probably know William as the guy who spent the last decade maintaining the GoRobotics blog, which was recently acquired by Roboshop. His new project is RobotBox a community site for showing off robots you've built. Some other robot building friends of ours over at Willow Garage are celebrating the 3rd anniversary of ROS, one of the leading robot operating systems software packages (no doubt because it's released as open source to preserve the user's software freedoms). Lisa Devaney writes to tell us about a cool new educational program in UK schools that "aims to teach youth about the future workplace in 10-15 years time, demonstrating how robotics will influence career choices". It's called Robots and Avatars. And of course, The Swirling Brain swirls on, this week swirling up a Register story on CMU's flying robot jeep, a cnet story on Japan's new flying surveillance robot, a cake decorating robot, and an update on military exoskeletons. 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.
