The world’s loneliest robot travels through England

The world’s loneliest robot travels through England

C.A.R.L. is a series by London-based photographer David Ryle about a sad and lonely robot traveling all by his lonesome throughout England. The beautiful, silver mech was created by artist Gemma Fletcher and Studio Boo.

The series of photos show C.A.R.L. wandering streets and fields, doing human stuff like: reflecting deeply, getting lost in thought, and being overcome with emotion while staring at the horizon. It’s a bit of a downer, actually. Ryle says the suit is a reference to retro concepts of the image of the future. He also says that the series is about the loneliness of being.

New Project: SunBEAM Seeker Bot

right-side-profileBEAM robotics is about getting the most complex and interesting behaviors from the simplest circuits and components. The SunBEAM Seeker is a very simple LM386-based light-seeking robot based on Randy Sargent's classic "Herbie" BEAM design. Build this little bot and it will follow a black line traced on a white floor or, with the photosensors pointing upward as in this version, seek out the brightest light source in a room. It is also descended, in part, from our own Mousey the Junkbot, and adds a special tailwheel made from a roller-lever limit switch to make the robot automatically turn on when you set it down, and off again when you pick it back up.

Bye, Mum! Atti the robot will babysit the kids now

This South Korean robot was created by SK Telecom to takeover parental duties. Almost. Programmed with songs, games and other interactive programs, Atti is controlled by a magic wand and might just help your kids learn faster than any parent can.

SK Telecom Project Manager Shin So-young says research has shown children see robots as friends and don’t get bored of robots repeating phrases, whereas they do with their human teachers.

And Atti isn’t the only hi-tech system to take the reigns in child rearing, either. Book Tree is another invention that uses radio frequency technology to read kids’ favorite books aloud, getting children more interested in reading.

And to think we were just playing with simple blocks 20 years ago!

RobotsConf: Day 1

img_7104The first day of RobotsConf, a new conference designed to transform 150 coders into makers in just 48 hours, was inspirational, educational, and exhausting! Attendees heard keynotes from Whurley, and Super Awesome Sylvia (with dad), then rocketed through educational sessions that covered everything from electrons to artificial intelligence. When the educational sessions ended, the doors were opened to the drone room and the robot build area. Excited and inspired attendees immediately started planning and creating robots, some of which can be seen taking shape in the slideshow.

World’s first Cyborg Cockroach is now for sale

World’s first Cyborg Cockroach is now for sale

Having your own minions is now a reality. Except these minions aren’t cute or yellow. Instead, they have six legs, wings, antennae, and go “crunch” when you accidentally step on them.

You can now buy RoboRoach, the first cyborg to be commercially available to the public at $99.99. Developed by Backyard Brains, owners of this cyborg can attach an electronic backpack to a cockroach and then use their smartphones to overstimulate it. They can then control the insect to move left or right.

There is one problem though. According to Backyard Brans’ founders, Tim Marzullo and Greg Gage, the cockroach will, in time, learn to ignore the battery attached to their back. After this happens, Backyard Brains says that, “you can clip the wires and retire the cockroach to your breeder colony to spend the rest of its days making more cockroaches for you.”

Before I go out and buy myself one, I have one question. Does it have a flying cockroach mode?

Great Galloping Robots: Muybridge’s Horse vs. Boston Dynamics’ WildCat

wildcat_04_solo_animation_rI'm pretty sure whoever edited this recent video from Boston Dynamics showing their Wildcat robot prototype galloping across a parking lot had Muybridge's work of 120-odd years ago in mind, especially during the slow-motion sequence starting around 1:04. When I saw the video this morning I was struck by the parallels and decided to animate them side-by-side.
