Tinkernology ROBOTWORLD How to make your first robot If you have purchased an "Instant Robot" shield, you can find a project using that shield here . If you prefer the instructions in a single PDF, Dominic / Servello has made this nice PDF to download - Thanks :) Welcome :) Everything here is so easy, that after you have gone through it, you can make a robot in a couple of hours. Because there are so many little things you need to know. There are other "How to get started building robots" out there. All images in high-res here. Materials needed It used to be a hassle to buy the materials, because not one single webshop was carrying everything needed, and you had to buy from several shops. Good news is that some shops now have made their own kits for this instruction: Jaxx's shop (Webshop, located on westcoast, US) Solarbotics shop (Webshop, located in Canada) - And if you buy it there, you even support hosting of letsmakerobots.com - because in order to be on the list above, the shops contacted us , and we made a deal :D 1 PICAXE-28 Project Board

Robots engañan a cientos de twitteros haciéndolos creer que eran personas Tres grupos anónimos participaron en un elaborado plan para ver si unos bots automáticos podrían engañar a las personas y hacerlas creer que eran humanos, y mediante este sistema, manipular a un grupo de twitteros... algo que nos recuerda a la misteriosa "operación Metal Gear", pero hablaremos de eso después. El esfuerzo, en este caso, no fue un plan maligno de ningún gobierno, sino que fue parte de una competencia llamada "Socialbots 2011", diseñada para probar si los bots podían alterar la estructura de una red social. En dos semanas, tres "bots sociales" fueron capaces de integrarse en Twitter y ganar 250 seguidores en total. Cada equipo contaba con una cuenta de Twitter controlada por un bot. Los bots sociales observaban los tweets enviados por usuarios que compartían algún interés en particular, y luego generaba una respuesta sobre el tema que tuviera sentido. El éxito sugiere que los bots sociales podrían manipular grupos a gran escala, para bien o para mal.
