This is an interesting presentation made by Florian Johannßen. The topic of presentation is: How to connect the Nao robots with the cloud to share knowledge among each other

This is the largest robot event held in Southern California each year, featuring demonstrations which include artificial intelligence, robot vision, speech recognition, a matter replicator (3D printer)

The iLimb is the first of its kind – a commercially available replacement hand capable of realistic motion

Introducing Matthew James, the boy with a bionic hand

Dr. Sangbae Kim and his team at MIT’s Biomimetic Robotics Lab are building a cheetah-inspired robot to compete with other fast running robots as part of a DARPA challenge

Meet Baxter, a revolutionary new category of Robot from Rethink Robotics that is capable of applying common sense behavior to manufacturing environments. Affordably priced, versatile and safe enough to work shoulder-to-shoulder with people, Baxter robots redefine how small, mid-size and large domestic manufacturers use automation to compete with manufacturers in low-cost regions of the world

When conventional robots explore hazardous environments like rubble in the aftermath of an earthquake they usually get stuck and are lost. An amorphous robot with minimal structure could help in these situations… and be an excellent Mars surface explorer, too

NASA and General Motors introduce their new astronaut robot at National Air and Space Museum in Washington Smithsonian Institute

Lockheed Martin’s latest promo video of the HULC exoskeleton designed to ease a Soldier’s load by turning him into a temporary robot

AIST has succeeded in making HRP-4C Miim walk like a human being. Her knees are stretched by up/down motion of the waist, the single-toe supporting realizes longer strides, and she mimics the swing motion of human legs. Technical detail is presented in “Human-Like Walking with Toe Supporting for Humanoids,” by Kanako Miura, Mitsuharu Morisawa, Fumio

Machines are programmed to be intelligent, accurate, sociable, excellent at logical and decision making, etc but its rationality is impaired by its lack of emotion. The area in our brain called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex is what generates our emotions. We know what it is, but we don’t even know how it works, what makes
