Last Week On BotJunkie


By Evan Ackerman

Last week on BotJunkie, we got cuddly and drunk with a dancing hexapod ferret octopus beer robot thing, watched some snake robots wiggle in all kinds of different ways, rocked and rolled with a round steerable mass robot made with LEGOs, reached the limit on our cute meters with Penbo the robotic pengin for girls, got depressed over how robots are doing in the current economy, watched an Albert Einsten robot learn how to make facial expressions, learned why you don’t talk to robots, responded to some simulations of needy behavior by Willow Garage’s PR2, celebrated our 1,000th post (W00T!!!), announced a contest to name a group of robots, and finished out the week with a press release informing us that a robot fueled by biomass doesn’t actually eat dead people.

So far this week, we’ve posted about a giant gundam statue in Japan, photographic proof that Arnold Schwarzenegger is actually a Russian Terminator robot from WWII, the most annoying robot toy ever, more vids of CMU snakebots, and a robot controlled by a zombie moth head.

We’ve also got last weeks Bot With Stuff for you, right after the jump.
