One could reasonably assume Japan’s impressive array of supertech humanoid robots would swarm the inspired-by-Fukushima DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), but Tokyo University spin-off SCHAFT Robotics is it.
It seems to me that I've reported on the fact that Richard Garriott's various automata and toys were featured on the Martha Stewart Show during its fifth season (in 2010). The videos — there are two segments, the first (linked ...

Check out these programmable Lego bots from Sony VentureBeat The Toy Alive bots are controlled with Sony Playstation controllers. Like most basic robotics toys, Toy Alive contains LED components and small motors.
This post will detail my plans and progress for an autonomous car. I’ll be using what I learned from building the balancing robot and courses thoughUdacity and MITx. The goal is to take a small 1/10 remote controlled car and have it navigate a course on its own. To navigate the course, I plan to use an Android phone, GPS, and an accelerometer/gyroscope. I will record a video stream through the phone and then process it on my laptop using Python and the computer vision library OpenCV.
Also, by connecting a projector instead of a recording device, images can be projected onto a fast-moving object. This could also be used in AR applications, showing interactive content on moving objects.
On-board cameras, motion-tracking Legobots and simulated minefields bring classic toys into the 21st Century. Continue reading → (Ever thought when you were a kid your Legos needed a motor? These new blocks might be coming to you soon!
