Some time has passed since the last blog. Numerous things have developed in regards to humanoids, bipeds, and inventions. Things were so busy that I simply didn't have the time to update all the accomplishments.

Summary Briefly outlined, my work included over a thousand computer programs - written for robots, VR was expanded ten fold, two supercomputers were designed and built, one 3D computer was invented, and dozens of sensors were interfaced and utilized. Twelve new robots were built and programmed. The results? New robots. Increased computing power. More AI. Lots of inventions. Articles and papers were published, a new robotics magazine was born, and great spinoff technology has appeared. I was not idle in any way...

Spinoff Technology For example, one spinoff of the technology invented is a doctor robot. It uses all non-invasive procedures to examine a human, without touching. In the future, not only exams but surgery as well will be noninvasive, without touching the human.

3D Computer The newest invention is a 3D computer - a kind of innovative revelation in computers. It takes advantage of multidimensional computing where not only hardware but software as well, can exist in the planes of multidimensional realms. How we define and utilize these realms is mind changing and truly something wonderful!

12 Brains These projects seem to grow continuously, i.e. a single robot was interfaced to a supercomputer that gave the robot 12 brains for immense computational power. This is part of an ongoing project to increase the thought abilities and brain power capacities of a single robot, autonomously.

Supercomputers Also using the first supercomputer, an analysis of a portion of the brain cortex was simplistically initiated but within the center of all the complexity to achieve some startling results.

Linked Supercomputers In another project, I have linked two supercomputers. This has resulted in not only massive new power, but led to new things that were never before imagined.

Books & Papers I'm writing several books at the same time, publishing more papers, and setting up a computer that will follow me around when I travel so as to never lose a thought. Hopefully I can get some of these projects written up for this blog in more detail.

Just as expected, numerous humanoid robots are now exhibiting problems in the low battery state. In the latest Robot magazine, reviews indicated the dangerous conditions that exhume resulting in servos locking in damaging positions, not to mention the potential for causing bodily harm and injury. I've blogged numerous times on this, and recently put an invention into good use that prevents this condition from happening. The EP - Energy Procrastinator allows the humanoid to prevail in the best energy conditions, thereby avoiding L-B-S.

Plans are advancing well towards the completion of all new web sites, in particular for robotics, inclusive of humanoid robots. Other web pages may include robotic telescopes, optics, space time equations, and the OBS. One or more pages should include the assortment of various inventions. In particular, I'd like to open up sections for humanoid AI programming, to build up a reference library of functions.

Battery research is continuing, and a study of the effects of voltage levels upon servos. Servos are quite sensitive to drops in supply voltage. The study is named SSB - Servo Study of Batteries. It's inclusive of determining the effects of voltage regulators and stability based on battery voltage.

In order for humanoids function properly, a clean voltage regulated source is primary. Battery technology is still archaic, and new more powerful sources, such as LiPo can be dangerous if not properly handled. However, for the time being, the use of batteries is inevitable until Honda develops a fuel cell for Asimo and that technology filters down.

The International Humanoid Robotics Exposition went well and so did the software and hardware interfaces. So far, the HIS Humanoid International Study has extended to the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China. I'm looking forward to additional travel to new countries to continue this project.

WIN XP is now handling at least one humanoid platform for programming and motion control. One humanoid was down with an ankle problem requiring some maintenance which went smoothly. Due to a high volume of use, this humanoid has had approximately 12 mechanical repairs involving arms, legs, ankles, and shoulders.

At least 35 projects are all going on at the same time to accelerate the accomplishments per unit time. However, not all projects are updated in the projects section. I'll try to get to this in time. Some of the newer projects are hardware related. At this time the majority of the projects involve extensive software.

Some thought is being placed into the concept of a book to document the rapid development of humanoid inventions. I will need much of my laboratory equipment and will have to pick that up during another trip to the laboratory which may happen later this year.

Some time was spent on a new invention for the observatory, i.e. a new kind of telescope. Additional time was spent on the world's famous remote robotic telescope. I hope to have some clear weather after the rainy season passes to get some clear proof of concept images through the scope. A third invention was designed which directly involves accelerating the capabilities of Otis Observatory and establishing its perimeter to new countries.

Some work was aimed towards developing a safety device for world wide use. In addition to a hardware product, a virtual product is in the design that encompasses the humanoid robot. It will be interesting to measure the results once the VR programming is completed.

A small amount of time was spent studying a computer cam and examining the potential range in imaging applications. Another study was imaging software related to gain numerous functions for vision and clarity. A lens study was completed that compared various EFLs using several virtual oculars. This went excellent, and the gain, in addition to optical, produced some exquisite results, worthy of paper publication.

I'm preparing for another Humanoid Robotics International trip. This exposition leaves several choices - China, Japan, and Korea as the top three. The knowledge and experiences from these trips are paramount. Japan is the host of ROBO-ONE 11 around this date. Korea is one of the top leaders in humanoid products. China is noted for its manufacturing environment. It's going to be a tough decision.

This week, the software in the pc is being updated by correcting the bugs in the new IE7. This version of IE is now removed and has been replaced with a more reliable Mozilla browser with greater security.

Backup issues are now solved using large external storage devices. This helps greatly as the computers can now be hosed on a regular basis while retaining the data safely.

Several new projects, ongoing, were introduced in the past 2 weeks. These now include various personality behaviors for the prime humanoid. The Massive Humanoid Index (MHI) was established and one PT (Personality Trait) was updated.
