Greetings all. I've always liked the idea of of animating and giving intelligence to inanimate objects. I haven't made any robots, however, I am somewhat capable of programming in C and am planning on making an artifical intellignce. I also like video games, especialy sim games and RPGs. I enjoy absurdist humor, science fiction and fantasy. I also like medieval and other ancient technology, as well as history in general.

New video from Aldebaran Robotics. NAO Robocup Edition getting put into production.

Thet's weird. There used to be an article on a coffe-making robot up, but now it's just gone. A google search focusing on takes me to the main page, but even the Google cache dosn't have the article in it. Was this taken out accidentily, or is there a reason I'm not aware of?

Interesting... I'm having trouble finding information on how to make a robot that can keep itself from falling into the pool, or a duck pond, or any other wet thing a robot should usualy stay out of. Is there any known reliable way to detect large bodies of water (besides human vision), or am I better off just waterproofing a pool skimming, duck feeding robot?

Hey look guys, somebody made space moneys! And from the look of them, and the fact that they're made of soft, not toxic plastic, they look perfect for teething! Be carefull, though: The smaller demoninations may pose a choking hazard for kids 3 and under and should not be used for that purpose.

Here's a way to make bump sensors I found of Instructables.
