The Dawn of Killer Robots


Motherboard gains exclusive access to a small fleet of US Army bomb disposal robots—the same platforms the military has weaponized—and to a pair of DARPA’s six-foot-tall bipedal humanoid robots. They meet Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams, renowned physicist Max Tegmark, and others who grapple with the specter of artificial intelligence, killer robots, and a technological precedent forged in the atomic age. It’s a story about the evolving relationship between humans and robots, and what AI in machines bodes for the future of war and the human race.

Israel’s Killer Robots


Israel is the world’s biggest exporter of military drones, used around the world for everything from surveillance to precision rocket attacks on speeding cars in remote locales. Israel’s drone program hasn’t stirred as much controversy as its American counterpart, but not because their targeted killings are any less fatal. VICE sent Simon Ostrovsky to a drone testing airfield in Israel to find out what their latest eye-in-the-sky can see. -From the YouTube video description

Working at 3D Robotics


“What it’s like to work at 3D Robotics: An introduction to the company through the stories of the people who work here”. Ok, I am gonna quite whatever I am doing and I can go there to work! I am not kidding! I strongly believe in this company and the future or autonomous air vehicles or drones or air robots or anything else you want to call it! Believe it or not, this movement will be the next Facebook or Google or any other happy tech company with huge amount of money!

The Cubli: An amazing cube


This is the most amazing thing I happened to cross on the net today! Seriously you must watch the video in order to appreciate it. Of course, you have to be a little bit of a geek as well but this is a totally different story. I am copying from the YouTube description here: “The Cubli is a 15 × 15 × 15 cm cube that can jump up and balance on its corner. Reaction wheels mounted on three faces of the cube rotate at high angular velocities and then brake suddenly, causing the Cubli to jump up. Once the Cubli has almost reached the corner stand up position, controlled motor torques are applied to make it balance on its corner. In addition to balancing, the motor torques can also be used to achieve a controlled fall such that the Cubli can be commanded to fall in any arbitrary direction”
