Thought I'd share one of my fondest memories of BOB MAY -The ROBOT from Lost in Space
This video shows how to control a Mini Darwin using an Android device via bluetooth. The app is only in Korean at the moment. You can tell the robot to walk and do other stuffs by pressing buttons on the app. It also uses the gyro sensor and voice recognition on the Android tablet to tell the robot what to do. http://unclebobtech.com http://robobirthday.com http://ift.tt/1mMMeJN

Cooperating robots for monitoring of riverine environments
Deagostini Japan and Mitsui Sumitomo bank are introducing a Robi branded VISA credit card in Japan next month. The introductory campaign includes Robi branded items including a mini Robi figure and Quo prepaid cards featuring an original Robi design.
Needless to say, the promotion is only open to Japan residents.

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:
This is a first impression review of Robotis's latest robot, the Mini Darwin.

The kids love the Mini Darwin because it looks so cute. It can be controlled by an Android smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth.

But who builds these computer models? Current 3D printer software is based on outdated concepts from the 80s. Its difficult to use and takes years for professional designers to learn. How much of a revolution will this be if only a handful of professionals can create for this technology? At Thinker Thing we have developed a radical new process that can build real objects using just your preferences. A touch screen user interface so simple and natural that even young children can custom manufacture their own perfect product from their mobile phone. A 3D printer is not required, our applications seamlessly integrate with current and mature 3D printer services like Shapeways. The customer simply presses print and their object arrives in the post in the material of their choice, plastic, full colour, rubber, brass,ceramic, silver & gold utilising the latest and best printer technologies for as little as $6. Applications that will feature our technology are available for download on standard app stores such as Google Play and whilst our technology can literally be used for any kind of object our first applications focus on game and toy based objects. The power behind our patent pending innovation is a process that uses "Evolutionary Computation" to grow a perfect model from simple preference based choices. Our evolutionary algorithm based engine utilises crossover and mutation processes similar to how life itself was created. Which object lives on to produce the next generation is determined by the users preferences, and the genetic make up, the DNA of these objects, are merged and mutated to produce the next generation of objects. Genes survive because they are best suited to survival, when that survival is determined by the users preferences the result is a complex aesthetically pleasing object ideal for that unique user. In this way within a short period the user evolves their own perfect product using their own preferences.

NAO Robot streams images and movies from a pico projector connected to his head. With this feature, NAO Robot has a new way to deliver informations. NAO was able to listen, to understand and to speak; Which is great. But now, he can illustrate it.
