Last Week On BotJunkie


By Evan Ackerman

Last week on BotJunkie, we kicked things off with some cute little papercraft robots from Maker Faire, were absolutely blown away by a giant robot waldo, lusted over a gallery of robots from Maker Faire, pondered an iRobot patent for a dock that offloads dirt from a Roomba, remembered that there are already robot vacuums with docks, admired a bunch of artsy robot animal prints, watched a bunch of robots unsuccessfully challenge humans at soccer, stayed high and dry surfing on a Kuka robot arm, checked out some big mechs from some new movie, didn’t get turned on at all by a robot sex hotline, were impressed by multiple robots that operate with a single brain, watched Willow Garage’s PR2 robot autonomously navigate an office and plug itself in, and finished up the week being very very glad we weren’t a muscly guy getting tazered by a PackBot.

So far this week, we’ve posted about the upcoming consumer robotics revolution, a rat robot called Psikharpax, and the second coming of the Pleo robot dinosaur.

Bot with Stuff, after the jump.
