Raptor Robot Can Run 28 MPH and Avoid Obstacles
I’d wager what most of us know of the velociraptor is what we learned from Jurassic Park. The Raptor is a smaller dinosaur that is believed to have hunted in packs. Scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a robot that is based on the…

Honda’s New ASIMO Robot Shows Off

Co-Robot Offers (Drunken) Humanoid Moves on the Cheap
While it certainly isn’t the most sophisticated robot out there, this kit from Japan is possibly the least expensive bipedal robot I’ve seen. The Co-Robot keeps it on the cheap by using just a single motor and a wobbly gear-drive system to help it amble along. Now don’t expect the…
