The London Aquarium's New Arrival

Lately, the London Aquarium unveiled the
newest "species" to join its collection: robo-carp.
Computer scientists at the University of Essex in the U.K. developed the self-guided robot fish, seen here swimming in the aquarium. The designers say it is the smartest such robot yet created—the fish uses artificial intelligence and built-in sensors to avoid obstacles and respond to environmental changes, believe it or not! The fish's battery lasts for up to five hours, though the scientists hope to one day program it to search for and access a recharging station when it runs very low. The bot, which resembles a one-and-a-half-foot-long (half-meter-long) common carp, mimics the motions of a real fish swimming. Three of the robt fish will swim in a tank at the aquarium alongside their living environment.

"We Are Robots"

Funny new show on http://www.thefrown.com/player.php?/wearerobots/angrybot. In comments, tell me your favorite episode!

Twiki!



The coolest robot from the 1970's show, Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century. (And yes, that show is still on TV. It is on the Sci Fi Channel) http://www.jeffbots.com/twiki.wav

A brief look at Japan

No, this is not (another) new Mike Portnoy project, but rather a ridiculously well-endowed theater system Sony is showing off at the Japan World Expo. It uses a 164 foot laser projection system in combination with an 11-channel sound system to deliver mind-bogglingly vivid imaging and color reproduction. The ginormous screen displays in super-definition, at super-resolution, making high-definition, like, oh so two minutes ago.
What is this Japan World Expo you ask? At this special, and enthralling event that will be held next week, inventors will show off their latest stuff. Such as gadgets & gizmoz, robots, inventions, and other neat wacky things that will take your mind off of evereything and onto this show if you were in Japan. others will grace our eyeballs for the first time, like Toyota’s i-foot robot, down below. The human-controlled walking eggshell lets people on or off by bending its legs. At 7.74 feet tall and 441 pounds, this gigantic Humpty Dumpty can walk a little under a single mile per hour. It is like one of those wacky inventions sciencists use in Jimmy Neutron and other kid TV shows that pretty much do not explain anything at all.

So Amazing! New Female RoBoT


This new robot made by Japanese scientists is known to be the most human-like robot in the world!She has flexible silicone for skin rather than hard plastic, and a number of sensors and motors to allow her to turn and react in a human-like manner.
She can flutter her eyelids and move her hands like a human. She even appears to breathe. Find out more: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4714135.stm

Meaning of the term robot, by Wikipedia

From Wikipedia:
In practical usage, a robot is a mechanical device which performs automated physical tasks, either according to direct human supervision, a pre-defined program or, a set of general guidelines using artificial intelligence techniques. Robots are typically used to do the tasks that are too dirty, dangerous, difficult, repetitive or dull for humans. This usually takes the form of industrial robots used in manufacturing lines. Other applications include toxic waste cleanup, underwater and space exploration, mining, search and rescue, and mine finding. Recently however, robots are finding their way into the consumer market with uses in entertainment, vacuum cleaning, and lawn mowing.
