Tsutenkaku Towerbot Makes Almost as Much Sense as a Godzillabot
You got to hand it to the Japanese, they’re always coming up with the wackiest concepts. In an era in which we are trying to make robots look more human or just make them more useful, there’s nothing like this tower-shaped robot to get to the heart of the matter.…

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. A lot of people lose limbs…

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. If you haven’t heard about 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. And would you believe it? It’s called the Robonaut. These robots are made to…

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? This little humanoid ‘bot stands about…

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.

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
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…
