Kuratas Mech: Real or Fake, It’s Still Awesome

Kuratas Mech: Real or Fake, It’s Still Awesome
I’m going to start saying that I’m taking this with a huge grain of salt. This robot looks very realistic, yet has a somewhat cheesy and viral attempt feel to it at the same time. Watch the video for yourself and see what you think.

Club Lion Force Voltron Action Figures Form One Expensive Robot

Beicho Android Robot Aims to Replace Japan’s Great Rakugo Master
Beicho Katsura III is a rakugo master and is kind of a Living National Treasure in Japan. Rakugo, for those who don’t know, is an early Japanese form of entertainment. Basically, a storyteller. This guy sits on stage and uses a paper fan and small piece of cloth as his only props.

We’ve seen androids that have crossed the uncanny valley in terms of their face. But what about their other parts? Well, thanks to 24-year old Nobuhiro Takahashi, you can scratch realistic butts off of that list.

Skippy the Robot Skips Stones, and That’s It.
Try as I might, I’ve never been able to skip a stone across water in my life. And while there are some people who possess this skill, I’m not one of them. That’s okay, because it turns out there’s a robot to do my bidding skipping.

Robotic Camera Mimics Eye Movement

Robotic Camera Mimics Eye Movement
For all of our advances in robotics, robots still have trouble reproducing the complicated movements of the human eye. We have not had the ability to effectively mimic the movement of our eyes, so researchers have been creating robots with unnatural eyes.

Burritob0t 3D Printer Outputs Delicious Tex-Mex
If you ask me, 3D printing is the future – of everything. I think that within the next two decades, we’ll be using 3D printing technology (or variants thereof) to manufacture everything from parts for cars to replacement organs for humans.

Robot Will Destroy You… in Rock Paper Scissors

Robot Will Destroy You… in Rock Paper Scissors
A couple of years ago we saw a glove that can play rock paper scissors. While that glove was smart – it learns from your patterns – it could still lose. This robot hand on the other hand will win 100% of the time, all the time.

Shimi Music Robot is Ready to Rock Your World

Shimi Music Robot is Ready to Rock Your World
I’m not a huge fan of desktop toys that flap around and play music, as they tend to get on my nerves quickly. I blame Big Mouth Billy Bass for this. But I’m actually kind of enamored of this new robot which can dance and get its groove on to your music.

Artificial Skin Will Let Robots Savor the Feeling of Crushing Your Flesh and Bones

Artificial Skin Will Let Robots Savor the Feeling of Crushing Your Flesh and Bones
Thanks to a new technology, robots of the future will not only be able to see and hear, they’ll also be able to feel. But not in the sense that they’ll be moved by Wall-E – at least not yet – but feel as in have a sense of touch.

iCub Robot Learns to Talk Like a Baby

iCub Robot Learns to Talk Like a Baby
When last we saw iCub, he was learning to crawl like a baby and even count numbers like one. Now he has learned to talk like one. Human instructors have taught the bot to talk like a human infant, learning the names of simple shapes and colors so far.

Transformer Wine Rack: Merlot in Disguise

Transformer Wine Rack: Merlot in Disguise
Transformers should always carry their own alcoholic beverages. That way they could drink a toast with Shia LaBeouf after they kick each others asses and wreck our cities with their huge bodies. If Transformers did carry wine with them, I imagine they would look just like this.

House to Play Evil CEO in RoboCop Remake?

House to Play Evil CEO in RoboCop Remake?
Looking back at the movies in the 80s, there are several that standout for me as some of my favorites growing up. One of my favorites was RoboCop. This movie was sort of cheesy even back then and had tons of violence – my kind of flick.
