Neato Robotics BotVac series to launch in April

There are several different brands of robot vacuum cleaners on the market today and they all promise to do the same things. They will clean the floors in your home without you having to push the vacuum around yourself. You can even set them to clean when you aren't at home so you don’t have to hear the vacuum run.

Cubestormer 3 Robot sets Rubik’s Cube record

Cubestormer 3 Robot sets Rubik’s Cube record

Before you can finish reading the title of this post and this sentence, The Cubestormer 3 Robot would have solved the Rubik’s Cube puzzle about three times or more. Bazinga! This is no prank, but the honest truth, and those who attended the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, UK, got a chance to catch the action live. For simple folks like us at home, we do have a YouTube video that shows you how the cube was solved in 3.253 seconds flat.

Myo Jedi-armbands hooked up to Oculus Rift, robots and more

Myo Jedi-armbands hooked up to Oculus Rift, robots and more

Motion-tracking startup Thalmic Labs has been showing off what its early developers can do with a muscle-reading Myo armband and a little imagination, with the new peripheral already integrated with Oculus Rift, capable of remotely controlling mean-looking robots, and more. The company isn't planning to ship broadly until midway through this year, but its Myo Alpha Developers program is underway, and already the ideas are proving diverse.

Samsung Kidrobot artist team appears at MWC 2014: Tilt, The London Police

Samsung Kidrobot artist team appears at MWC 2014: Tilt, The London Police

Just as it was at CES 2014, so too did Samsung team up with Kidrobot to deliver artistic expression to the masses with artists Tilt and The London Police. The collaboration between Samsung and Kidrobot includes a set of custom cases and devices - the Galaxy Note 3 continues to be a centerpiece here even as the Samsung Galaxy S5 is introduced on a global scale - while customized vinyl toys sit right alongside. Samsung also provided Barcelona with some fantastic (decidedly non-technologically advanced) eye food with live painting by the artists just as they did earlier this year.

E-whiskers could give robots cat-like supersenses

E-whiskers could give robots cat-like supersenses

Artificial whiskers made of incredibly thin carbon nanotubes could give robots cat-like sensing abilities and allow hair-thin distributed sensors to track weather patterns and more, researchers at Berkeley claim. The new nanotechnology can differentiate as little pressure as a single Pascal - which the team at Berkeley Lab and University of California Berkeley say is about the same as a dollar bill resting on a table - making them around ten times as sensitive as existing sensors.

RoboSimian is the NASA JPL entry for the DARPA Robotics Challenge

There are several teams participating in the DARPA Robotics Challenge. The contest is to see what team can create a robot that is capable of performing a set of specific tasks. The robots developed may one day be able to help humans in an emergency situation like a nuclear meltdown or other challenge. One of the teams participating is the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory or JPL.
