Last Week On BotJunkie

Last Week On BotJunkie


By Evan Ackerman

Last week on BotJunkie, we began the week watching a video of a crawling floor cleaning robot, wanted to try our hand at a robot vending machine, kept our mouths shut about what purports to be the world’s smallest voice controlled robot, took issue with someone’s list of the 16 most ridiculous killer robots, were intrigued by an iRobot patent for a Roomba with a square front, came to grips with a robot shirt, put down twenty bucks for a kit that makes six different robots (sort of), got a little preview of Maker Faire, listened to a robot bagpiper play some impossible tunes, were impressed by a 7 year old’s suggestion on how to save the Spirit rover, watched a humanoid robot get emotional, and found out why you shouldn’t do the robot.

So far this week we’ve posted our robot coverage of Maker Faire, which includes a giant robot hand, some cute paper robots, and a photo gallery. We’ve also posted a story on an iRobot patent for a dock that automatically empties a Roomba’s dustbin.

Bot with Stuff, after the jump.
