Primer-V2 Robot Rides a Bike, No Training Wheels Needed

Primer-V2 Robot Rides a Bike, No Training Wheels Needed
We’ve seen robots that are capable of riding bikes (and unicycles) before, but usually they are slower than this guy. PRIMER-V2 also seems to have a ton of confidence. It’s crazy how good this little ‘bot is at riding his bike. I now foresee a future where bots will roam…

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future
I don’t know why robotics experts haven’t thought of this before, but this tire-like surveillance robot is the way to go for mobile and autonomous operations. Even better since it looks like it’s right out of science fiction, from Terminator, The Prisoner or Fahrenheit 451.…

Beeri: Siri-Controlled Robot Serves Beer

Beeri: Siri-Controlled Robot Serves Beer
Apple’s Siri voice assistant is quite clever and very accommodating, but it can’t make things happen in the real world. Not yet anyway. But when combined with Arduino, it’s capable of just about anything. Like controlling a beer-serving robot. If by serving we mean “pierce a can and let its…

This Robot Plays Angry Birds For You So You Can Do… Nothing

This Robot Plays Angry Birds For You So You Can Do… Nothing
Robots have been a part of human culture and imagination for a long time. Ever since we were kids, we were entertained by cartoon shows that had robots in them, like Richie Rich’s Irona and the Jetsons’ Rosie. In the real world, humans have managed to make some pretty cool…

DARPA’s Phoenix Assimilates Other Satellites

DARPA’s Phoenix Assimilates Other Satellites
DARPA has had some wild ideas, but any time I hear something from the agency that seems really improbable, I don’t discount them completely. Those cats at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency have a way of making the improbable into reality. One of their latest projects is a satellite…

Q-14 Reconnaissance Robot: And it Was All Yellow…

Q-14 Reconnaissance Robot: And it Was All Yellow…
The Q-14 Reconnaissance Robot was built by John Neiner for Starship Modeler’s Yellow contest way back in 2007, but it’s still just as cool as the day it was created. The robot definitely looks like an interesting addition to any modern family, wanting a bit of help with aliens and…

Teotronico, the Well Dressed Robot Pianist

Teotronico, the Well Dressed Robot Pianist
Some robots build cars in a factory, some rescue people during disasters and some just want to have fun. Teotronico just likes to get dressed up and play some piano for his human audience. This 19-fingered, and somewhat goofy looking robot not only plays the piano, but can also accompany…

FoamBot Builds More Robots Out of Foam

FoamBot Builds More Robots Out of Foam
Robots that have the capability to build other robots sound pretty freaky. I mean, there have been so many sci-fi movies released that somehow all end up having the same basic storyline: man invents powerful robot, robot outsmarts man, robot builds robot army, robot army takes over the world.…

Senseless Drawing Bot: Truth in Advertising

Senseless Drawing Bot: Truth in Advertising
With silly product names like “Wii”, “PSVita”, “Siri”, and “Xperia,” sometimes it’s nice to be able to look at the name of something, and then when you see it, you say “that’s exactly what I expected”.  The Senseless Drawing Bot delivers precisely on its branding expectations.…

CubeStormer II LEGO Robot Now Holds World Record for Solving the Rubik’s Cube

CubeStormer II LEGO Robot Now Holds World Record for Solving the Rubik’s Cube
I can’t solve a Rubik’s Cube to save my life. Robots don’t have that problem. There are smart humans out there that can solve it fast though. The current official human record for a Rubik’s cube 3×3 puzzle is just 5.66 seconds. CubeStomer II just laughed and broke the record…

Robot Programmed to Pick Up Poop: It’s Sh*t Like This That Will Bring Skynet on Our Asses

Robot Programmed to Pick Up Poop: It’s Sh*t Like This That Will Bring Skynet on Our Asses
The nerds at the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Laboratory seem to be fond of acronyms. As you may have guessed, GRASP itself is an acronym for General Robotics, Automation, Sensing & Perception. These are the guys that doomed all of humanity by programming a robot to pick up poop, and…

Blaster Transformer Speaker Booms His Way into Our Hearts

Blaster Transformer Speaker Booms His Way into Our Hearts
If you’re a fan of Transformers, you probably already known that Blaster is an Autobot who spends his days disguised as a boom box. This handmade version of the Audiobot Autobot looks like he’d fit in quite nicely on my desktop.…

Raytheon Heavy Lifter Prototype: Is Anyone Else Thinking of Aliens?

Raytheon Heavy Lifter Prototype: Is Anyone Else Thinking of Aliens?
This Raytheon-Sarcos modified DitchWitch is basically lifter with large robotic arms, allowing the operator to lift and manipulate large loads. It reminds me a lot of those robots in the movie Aliens. This robot could someday replace forklifts and other types of machines.…

Meka’s Robot Girl May Be the Girl of Your Dreams/Nightmares

Meka’s Robot Girl May Be the Girl of Your Dreams/Nightmares
The field of robotics has come a long way from the early days. We have built robots that can do any number of things, but what we are still lacking are robots that can truly interact and work alongside humans on a more physical level. However, we are getting there…

Nao, that lovable robot that has entertained us by dancing and doing all kinds of other awesome tricks, now has another capability. Aldebaran Robotics has created, the makers of Nao, have created a sort of home base for the robot, where it can chill, charge up or just relax after…

South Korean Quadruped Robot Dog Goes for a Walk

South Korean Quadruped Robot Dog Goes for a Walk
We’ve seen plenty of footage of BigDog and AlphaDog, but there’s a new robot dog in town, this time coming from South Korea’s SimLab. What’s interesting and at the same time creepy about this one, is that it walks around pretty quietly and seems to move swiftly and with more…
