AFFETTO Robot Head Will Creep You Out

AFFETTO Robot Head Will Creep You Out
I know that this isn’t really supposed to have anything to do with Halloween or scaring people, but what the heck guys, this robot baby head is really disturbing, especially when the guy starts moving the head around and the baby comes alive.

Texas High School Freshman Sends Robot to School in His Place

Texas High School Freshman Sends Robot to School in His Place

Custom Anatomy Statue Puts the Guts in Gutsman

Custom Anatomy Statue Puts the Guts in Gutsman
Obvious pun is obvious, so I’ll stop there and let you look at the thing itself: Kodykoala – who also made the Yoshi Mecha and Zombie Yoshi statues – used a vinyl Gutsman as well as “parts from random robots and things” to make this statue.

iPhone-Controlled Mini Fridge Beer Cannon

iPhone-Controlled Mini Fridge Beer Cannon
When you’re watching the big game, or in the middle of a marathon gaming session, you don’t want to have to get up and go get yourself a cold one. Why? Because you’re lazy. Don’t be mistaken, I’m just as lazy as you are.

Shanzhai Gundam

Shanzhai Gundam
If you can make it, China can copy it: While other Japanese have been busy building another classic robot statue, and South Koreans are building a gigantic robot statue of their own, this orange Gundam copycat is being built in a theme park in Sichuan, China.

Microsoft Kinect + R/C Flying Bot = Autonomous Flying Machine

Microsoft Kinect + R/C Flying Bot = Autonomous Flying Machine
Microsoft’s Kinect proves that some gaming peripherals aren’t just for gaming. Since the launch of Microsoft’s Kinect, people have been hacking it to do all sorts of  interesting things. However, I have to say that attaching it to a flying robot has to be one of the coolest I’ve seen.

In the Future, Drug Dealers Will be Robots

In the Future, Drug Dealers Will be Robots
In Nurse Jackie, one of the main characters, who was a pharmacist, got replaced by some drug dealing machine. It didn’t take long before he got his job back because the machine was stupid. This robot is anything but stupid – and pharmacists, hospital orderlies, and drug dealers, beware!

Wii Balance Board Used in Segway-Like Ride for Babies
As if babies weren’t troublesome enough, what with their crying and putting things-in-their-mouth abilities, a team of researchers from Ithaca College in New York have built a ride that even babies as young as 7 months can control, ensuring that parents of the future will literally get no rest.

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly
Eric Gregori‘s new clever robot has a Chumby head and can walk around, albeit slowly. What’s amazing is that there isn’t much computing power in a Chumby, yet Eric still managed to make it walk. This cute little robot uses a 3-axis Freescale accelerometer to balance.

Berkeley Bionics’ Elegs Medical Exoskeleton: Letting Paralyzed People Walk Again

Berkeley Bionics’ Elegs Medical Exoskeleton: Letting Paralyzed People Walk Again
I have to say that this is an amazing piece of technology. It’s called a medical exoskeleton and promises to make physically-challenged people walk again. eLEGS is going to be an exoskeleton made for the general public, and is designed to help people who are in wheelchairs walk again.

Robolamps have More Charm Than Bay’S Transformers
Made of plastic pipes, sockets, wire sleeves and other common plumbing and electrical materials, these Robolamps are some of the geekiest and most unique desk lamps we’ve ever seen. They’re not all menacing like Robolamp Roddock, pictured above.

Robot Survival Games: Proxy Airsoft

Robot Survival Games: Proxy Airsoft

Windro Robot: This Roomba Does Windows

Windro Robot: This Roomba Does Windows
While I don’t have a Roomba, I used to have a boss who kept watching the infomercials a few years ago and finally got himself one. Love them or hate them, robot vacuum cleaners are here to stay.

Delivery Robot Pulls Carts, but Not Your Groceries

Delivery Robot Pulls Carts, but Not Your Groceries
While this robot is designed to be used in hospitals to transport drugs, I think that something like this could be used in grocery stores to take care of your grocery shopping too. The MKR-003 is the brainchild of AIST, Keio University, and Muratec.

Kawada Humanoid Robots Get Ready to Take Over Japan

Kawada Humanoid Robots Get Ready to Take Over Japan
Japan’s population is getting older, and they need robots to take care of all of them. This is almost a plot out of Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society, but it’s actually reality because AIST and Kawada Industries are releasing their new line of humanoid ‘bots, the HRP-4 series.
