TOKYO — Honda.’s walking, talking interactive robot is running into glitches in its new job as a museum guide in Tokyo.

The bubble-headed Asimo machine had problems telling the difference between people raising their hands to ask questions and those aiming their smartphones to take photos at the Miraikan science museum.

It froze mid-action and repeated a programmed remark, “Who wants to ask Asimo a question?” . . . Read Complete Report

Dig a LITTLE DEEPER THEI Archive: “Asimo the Honda Robot”

World’s Top3 Humanoid Robots – Asimo vs HPR-4 vs NAO! (video)

When I started to include “Robotics” as a Department here I did it because I noticed a lot of money – In tight times – going into the research of robots.  Over the years I’ve noticed that when certain projects of science are being “pushed” by lots of money the Controllers figure in there somewhere. 

It seems there is rush to make a more human robot. Why?

Could it have any thing to do with the plans of the Controllers to reduce the worlds population?

Could the Controllers riches be behind the unbelievable fast track to build  a more human robot?  

Is this part of the plans of the controllers to REPLACEhuman’s in the work place?

 We continue to search for those answers. . . EDITOR

Lowe’s is breaking ground by testing robots to help customers navigate their often massive stores and assist with purchases. Although no plans yet exist to implement the autonomous bots nationwide, some believe this is a big leap towards deeply integrating robotics into our daily lives, which experts believe will happen by 2025. RT’s Sam Sacks takes a look at what impact this may have on the human workforce.

When considering the word “robot,” the first image that comes to mind is often a cold, metal machine, often performing a single or limited set of functions. A robot may possess appendages that resemble human anatomy, like an arm or an eye, but those are purely functional.

Some engineers, however, are trying to perfect robots whose function is to be more like humans. . . . Read Complete Report with cool slide show.

In 2011, when an MIT senior named John Romanishin proposed a new design for modular robots to his robotics professor, Daniela Rus, she said, “That can’t be done.”

Two years later, Rus showed her colleague Hod Lipson, a robotics researcher at Cornell University, a video of prototype robots, based on Romanishin’s design, in action. “That can’t be done,” Lipson said. . . . Read Complete Report

Known as M-Blocks, the robots are cubes with no external moving parts. Nonetheless, they’re able to climb over and around one another, leap through the air, roll across the ground, and even move while suspended upside down from metallic surfaces. . . . From the Description published with video.

Most TED talks if not all are thought provoking. The one given by moral philosopher Peter Singer on effective altruism (see Video 1) at TED 2013 Longbeach (CA) is no exception. This talk is actually a call for action. We don’t need to be billionaires to help others around the world. We can either offer part of our time or our money. However, this emotion-driven reaction can be leveraged by using our brains to figure out the most effective way to use resources we have at hand.

What’s the connection with robotics? The answer to this question lies in another question: What can roboticists, do to change the world for the better? As a matter of fact, there are already people that use robots in projects that positively impacts our society or our planet. . . . Read Complete Report w/videos

Something we Missed? 5 Reasons To Fear Robots

Here is a GREAT Report from Live Science that I somehow missed back in February. It defines perfectly what we are following in our “Robot becomes Human” research. Sorry it took so long guys, but at least it’s now in our research archive. Highly recommended. . . EDITOR

Real robot names such as Roomba and Asimo don’t evoke as much fear as the fictional “Terminator.” But consider that Roomba, the automated vacuum cleaner, is manufactured by iRobot, creator also of armed robot warriors for the U.S. military. And Asimo represents just the first wave of an incoming tsunami of robots that strive to look and act eerily human.

It goes beyond automated vacuums and mildly entertaining dance-bots. Japan and Korea plan to deploy humanoid robots to care for the elderly, while the United States already fields thousands of robot warriors on the modern battlefield. Meanwhile, plenty of people have enhanced their bodies technologically in ways that bring them closer to their robotic brethren.

So it’s OK to become a bit of a paranoid android, because many experts say that the robotic future is rapidly approaching . . . Read Complete Report
