First Step in Becoming a Cyborg: Bionic Feet!

First Step in Becoming a Cyborg: Bionic Feet!
The one concept of Cyberpunk that I’ve always enjoyed is bionic limbs. In that near future universe, people could have cybernetic limbs. For years, this concept was relegated to science-fiction. However, there has been progress to make these sort of replacement limbs a reality.

Plain Sight: for These Ninja Robots, Death is an Investment

Plain Sight: for These Ninja Robots, Death is an Investment
There are very few games where dying is a crucial mechanic, a requisite step; Beatnik Games’ Plain Sight is one of the few games that comes to mind. And that’s just because they e-mailed me to remind that the game is just about done.

NASA’s New Robonaut 2 Looks Like Daft Punk Made It
This awesome looking robot isn’t made in Japan, nope! It’s made in the good old US of A by GM for NASA (fun with acronyms!) Of course it makes perfect sense to send robots into space.

Wearable Robot Follows Your Every Move From Afar

Wearable Robot Follows Your Every Move From Afar
I’ve always thought that robots were meant to aid humans by helping them do some of their work. Now, it seems like the Japanese have come up with a robot that you can wear. The Wearable Robot was developed by the Tsumaki Telerobotics Laboratory at Yamagata University.

Henry’S Robots: Metal Model Mechs Make Me Merry
These amazingly intricate robot models come to us courtesy of Henry’s Robots. Henry has been amassing a virtual army of miniature metal mecha in his laboratory over the last few years. Each one is lovingly handmade by Henry, and I only wish I could have one sitting on my desktop right now.

Fujisoft’S Palro Pet Robot Could Use a New Name, Pal.

Fujisoft’S Palro Pet Robot Could Use a New Name, Pal.
I have to say that I’m not impressed by the name, but the Palro from Fujisoft sure is a cute looking robot. Palro gets its ingenious name by combining “pal” and “robot.” I know, what will those crazy Japanese scientists think of next, right?

Little Wheel Flash Game has Cool Visuals, Robots, Ambient Jazz – What’S Not to Like?
While it’s not long, complex or difficult Little Wheel has a nice atmosphere and a unique charm. As GameSpy‘s Brian Miggels said, Little Wheel may be a bite-sized game, but it is nonetheless a complete package.

Sega Saturn Joysticks Transform Into Insecticons, Apparently

Sega Saturn Joysticks Transform Into Insecticons, Apparently
I’d love to make some sort of Transformers/Allspark joke in reference to this Sega Saturn joystick, but unfortunately Gizmodo beat me to the punch. But that’s okay, ‘cause I can one-up their nerdiness by delving in to deeper detail and pointing out what, specifically, the Sega Saturn joystick transforms into.

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place
Someone at Robot’s Dreams just posted a link and a tiny snapshot of The Old Robots Website, nothing else; no intro, not even a goodbye. After spending nearly an hour at said website, I think I now know why: whoever posted that link must have been so eager to go back to browsing The Old Robots Website that he or she couldn’t be bothered with typing something else other than the link.

Robot Learns to Make Facial Expressions, is Rewarded With a Measly “Signal”
At least dogs get food when they get things right. This poor robot Einstein, made by computer scientists from the Machine Perception Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego, was given time to play with its 31 artificial facial muscles while “staring” at its reflection in the mirror.

Modder-friendly electronics company SparkFun Electronics recently held what they hope will be an annual event called the Autonomous Vehicle Competition, which is basically a race of proto-Autobots around one of SparkFun’s buildings. The contest was initially employees-only, but SparkFun realized it would be much more fun to have their customers join so that was what they did.

1950s Robots Galore, Now Invading!
I was cruising the Internets today and came across an incredibly rich roundup of robots and robot figures from the 1950s. As a robotophile, I was surprised and excited to see several bots that had been previously unknown to me!

The Robots have Arrived! in Pouch Form!
Do you prefer your robots cute, soft and able to hold your stuff? Me too, and that’s why I am enjoying the Robot a Day project from Canadian crafter Erin Wilk, aka Etsy seller anatomyofaskirt. Each weekday Erin creates a new, limited edition ‘bot made of vinyl, with convenient flip-top zipper head.
