Finally, a Rubik’s Cube That Solves Itself
We’ve watched many a nerd solve a Rubik’s Cube in like 4 seconds flat and we’ve also seen our share of robots that can solve it quickly as well. But until now, a Rubik’s Cube has never been able to solve itself.

Samsung Robotic Vacuum Integrates with Amazon Echo: “Alexa, Suck.”
Samsung has unveiled its Powerbot VR7000, a robotic vacuum that you can control with your Amazon Echo. In fact, Samsung says that all of its Wi-Fi-enabled Powerbot vacuums will work with Alexa. We don’t know exactly what you can command your bots to do, but I wouldn’t expect anything other than simple stop, go and get to work sort of commands.

Anthromod MK2 3D-Printed Robotic Hands: Terminators Set to Arise Next Year

Anthromod MK2 3D-Printed Robotic Hands: Terminators Set to Arise Next Year
This 3D-printed robotic hand is fully articulated and even has an opposable thumb. It’s called the MK2 from Anthromod and I’m sure that Skynet is pretty happy that we’re doing its bidding already.

Digger D-3 Robo Tank Exterminates Landmines
While this isn’t something new, since the British developed these types of tanks in WWII, the robotic Digger D-3 is a modern-day take on the mine-sweeping tank. The D-3 is remote-controlled and will crawl around a minefield digging up up landmines thanks to its flail hammers.

Sphero: Get Your Hands on Some Remote-Controlled Glowing Balls
Balls are very near and dear to most men’s hearts. We use them for all sorts of fun and games. We try to take care of our varied balls and keep them from harm’s way. No one wants one of their balls to go flat for instance or explode due to mishandling.

DLR Hand Arm System: The Dawn of the Terminator?

DLR Hand Arm System: The Dawn of the Terminator?
Some German researchers over at DLR have come up with an advanced robotic arm that’s actually really sturdy. Initially, the arm might look fragile, but that isn’t the case. Take a look at the video, in which a researcher takes a baseball bat against the robotic space arm.

Kinect Hacked to Control Pr2 Robot by Willow Garage
Hacks of the Microsoft Kinect are just flooding in now that the device is in the hands of geeks everywhere. I bet Microsoft never thought people would be using the Kinect for anything other than gaming as it was intended.

Bear Robot Designed to Save Lives, Looks Like It Will Kill Us All
Vecna Robotics BEAR (Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot) was created to help with everything from search and rescue missions to hazmat handling. But despite it’s good intentions and unassuming looks in the photo below, this robot scares the crap out of me.

Giant Robot Dinosaurs Walk Among Us

Giant Robot Dinosaurs Walk Among Us
This nifty bit of robot footage comes to us from Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Back at the end of 2005, the Institute developed two animatronic dinosaurs (one Tyrannosaurus Rex, one Parasaurolophus) that could actually balance and walk without any external stability systems.

Autonomous Jeep Conquers Pikes Peak

Autonomous Jeep Conquers Pikes Peak
Axion Racing’s robotic Jeep Grand Cherokee is the first computer-controlled vehicle to conquer the complexities of climbing to the 14,110 foot summit of Colorado’s Pikes Peak. The tricked-out SUV climed to the top in just over 47 minutes, certainly not record time, but still quite impressive for a vehicle that has no driver.
