Random Robot Roundup

Posted 2 Nov 2012 at 18:41 UTC by steve Share This

This week's roundup starts with news from Joanne Pransky about a new tandem robot arm system from ST Robotics. Juxi from IDSIA let us know about a new promo video they've made called "Towards Intelligent Humanoids" - it's about their "ongoing efforts to apply AI algorithms to create autonomous, adaptive, intelligent behaviors". The Swirling Brain sent a few stories our way including news that a human driver narrowly won over an autonomous robot car in an auto race where speeds reached 185kph. It seems robots may soon beat the world's best ping-pong players too. And the Brain also sent a link to a cool, crowd-funded, open-source software created, CC-licensed movie about robots and cyborgs called Tears of Steel. We also heard from Andrew of, who saw our recent interview with David L. Heiserman and thought readers might like to check out his interview with Dave back in 2008. Finally, Kra5h sent a link to his instructable demonstrating clever uses for a 555 timer in astable mode. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please. Don't forget to follow us on twitter and Facebook. And now you can add us to your Google+ circles too.
