RoboEarth [Artificial Intelligence] Knowledge-Exchange between Robots The purpose of the RoboEarth project is to create a giant network through which robots and their programmers can easily share information about actions and the world. Similar to what the World Wide Web has done for humans, RoboEarth will enable robotic systems to benefit from the experience of other robots in a way that can be easily translated to their own case. Data stored in RoboEarth include software components, environment maps, task knowledge, and object recognition models.

» New DARPA Robot Can Autonomously Track People Alex Jones Professor warns machines will be used to “kill people” Paul Joseph Watson Wednesday, September 12, 2012 Following Professor Noel Sharkey’s warning that the fleet of robots being developed for DARPA will ultimately be used to “kill people,” Boston Dynamics has released a new video showcasing how its LS3 robot is able to autonomously track humans over rugged terrain. Ballpoint Pen Draws Electronic Circuits With Conductive Ink Circuit Scribe is a rollerball pen that uses a silver conductive ink to let you create fully functioning circuits as fast as you can can draw, making it cheaper, faster, and easier to test out electronics and prototype concepts. Developed by Electroninks Incorporated, a company originally part of a University of Illinois research lap, Circuit Scribe tries to make the process as easy as possible. No wires, no boards, no soldering; all you need is a sketch and you can begin tinkering with nothing more than a coin battery and an LED.

Placemeter Sensor offers a window into activity outside your window Have you ever wondered how many people walk past your shop? Or drive past your adverts? A new device is aimed at giving people that information, which might otherwise remain inaccessible. The Placemeter Sensor sticks to the inside of a window and counts people, vehicles, bicycles and more. Placemeter calls its sensor an "urban measurement tool" and says it can reveal hidden patterns and opportunities in the movement around towns and cities. The device itself is a discrete 2.25 x 5.5 x 0.75-in (57 x 140 x 19-mm) unit, and requires only power and Wi-Fi to begin measuring. » DARPA “Emergency Response” Robot Runs Faster Than Usain Bolt Alex Jones Machines to be used for “defense missions” Paul Joseph Watson Thursday, September 6, 2012 One of the robots under development by DARPA for the purpose of “emergency response” and humanitarian missions has beaten the human world speed record set in 2009 by athlete Usain Bolt. “The Defense Advanced Research Project’s (DARPA) Cheetah managed to reach 28.3 mph, said the agency on Sept. 5.

Under the Hood of the World's Smallest, Cheapest Computer Computers are big, expensive gadgets, but they don't need to be. In 2006, several members of the Cambridge faculty and other UK computer scientists joined together to form the charitable Raspberry Pi Foundation with one simple goal: get more computers into the hands of more children. They knew they'd need to create low-cost, programmable devices and aimed to meet a $25 price point per unit, which is roughly the cost of one textbook. Six years later, in 2012, the credit card-sized computer was put on the market. The fully functional, programmable, low-cost computer retails for $25 or $35, depending on the model.

MightyOhm The Dino-Lite Pro AM4113T 1.3MP Handheld Digital Microscope is a surprisingly handy tool for inspecting all sorts of fine details at home and on the road. The small size and light weight are ideal for travel. Paul Ford: What is Code? A computer is a clock with benefits. They all work the same, doing second-grade math, one step at a time: Tick, take a number and put it in box one. Tick, take another number, put it in box two. Tick, operate (an operation might be addition or subtraction) on those two numbers and put the resulting number in box one. Tick, check if the result is zero, and if it is, go to some other box and follow a new set of instructions. You, using a pen and paper, can do anything a computer can; you just can’t do those things billions of times per second.

Justin - Humanoid Robot Catches with Two Hands German researchers developed a robot that can perform complex tasks such as catching a ball in mid flight. The new robot called “Justin” is described as a two-arm-system for investigation of two handed manipulation. The development of humanoid robots has made significant progress in recent years. Although several systems have impressive walking abilities, when it comes to their abilities to manipulate objects or interact with their surrounding they are quite limited. To overcome this limitation, researchers from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Robotics and Mathematics developed a human-like torso with two arms and two hands. Justin is used to test programming and control concepts for two-handed mobile manipulation, and in a recent demonstration was able to show impressive abilities including catching two balls in mid air just like a skilled human would do.
