Introducing Handle or… Creepy


Handle is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4​ ​feet vertically. ​It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. ​​​Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles​ found in the quadruped and biped robots we build, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs Handle can have the best of both worlds.
Fore sure it looks amazing! But its a little bit creepy!

Hack a Surgical Robot


In the future, your surgeon could be a machine. Teleoperated surgical robots can be controlled from a distance to operate on patients in hard-to-reach places. But as information travels between a human on one side of the world and a robot on the other, it’s vulnerable to attack

Cozmo: Behind the Scenes


Driven by the vision of bringing a character to life in the real world, Anki worked incredibly hard to combine robotics, AI, and computer vision technologies into a consumer robot. Their realization of that vision is Cozmo, a real-life robot like you’ve only seen in movies, with a one-of-a-kind personality that evolves the more you hang out

Zenbo | ASUS


Zenbo is a friendly and capable home robot designed to provide assistance, entertainment, and companionship to families and meant to address the needs of each family member. With a full range of capabilities, including the ability to move independently and understand spoken commands, Zenbo can assist in the home and interacting with him is easy and fun.

In other words, a super cool and cute robot (with great potential) but it’s presented terribly in this ad! This video is the official one from Asus and sucks! And wait, there more! Have you seen the video from the presentation day? It’s the one below! I don’t care if he is the CEO or any other high ranking official from Asus! But I care about how you have to present something to the public… and he is for sure a terrible host!

Robot, Draw me my portrait


At Futur en Seine in France, ENSCI Engineering school presented the results of a year of reflection on robots, their role in manufacturing and their place in our daily lives. Of the projects presented by ENSCI and its FabLab, one in particular captured the spotlight. Each visitor who wished could be “captured” by a small robot based on the project designed by students Paul Couderc, Xavier Dufour Thimothé Montoy. From a Microsoft Kinect device that was capturing the image at time T, each person was reproduced by an ABB robot with a black felt pen. The concept was a great success with visitors, who selected it to receive the Audience Award. This award recognized the robot and at the same time the work of students from ENSCI School
