This Week On BotJunkie


By Evan Ackerman

We started off this week on BotJunkie with a cheap little Wall-E-esque bugbot that you can build yourself, got some details on the SmartMow robotic lawn mower and the Husqvarna Automower that we saw this year at CES, met a little robot called Forknife that is controlled with a cellphone running Android, found out that Boeing now has a mobile system that can shoot down UAVs with lasers, were slight grossed out by a robot that sweats, tried to guess whether an opponent was a bot or not in an Unreal Tournament artificial intelligence competition, watched a multifunctional robot called STAIR fetch a stapler on command, admired some colorful and totally weird bio-inspired robot sculptures, found out that UC Berkeley now has fully armed and operational radio controlled Rhinoceros beetles, were slightly worried after a toy robot injured 14 children in Japan, were even more worried by a new toy robot gorilla that can outrun your kids, met a guy in Vermont who has decided to build his own giant robot hexapod, and finished out the week with a video of (another) gorilla robot chasing a Puegot.
