Artificial intelligence researcher Ben Goertzel wants to create robots far more intelligent than humans
And as Goertzel says "no toilet training involved". Creating robots that learn is a really interesting area but I'm also fascinated by the new wave of crowdsourced and crowdfunded scientific research. There's an IndieGoGo campaign currently running for Adam Z1, Goertzel's new Hanson robot.
Drones are coming to American airspace. Whether used in agribusiness to monitor farms by landscape architects to design properties by law enforcement...

Two volunteers in the first public frying of hamburger grown in a lab said Monday that it had the texture of meat but was short of flavour because of a lack of fat.
Hardware startups are traditionally viewed as risker investments than software companies. They're harder to monetize quickly, and they don't tend to generate the steep viral growth that many softwa...
A minimum viable product (MVP) is not always a smaller/cheaper version of your final product. Defining the goal for a MVP can save you tons of time, money and grief. Drones over the Heartland I ran...
One of several current robot startups who are getting customers right now for a product that isn't really robotic. But they're getting customers, learning the market and will be able to support the costs of developing their next robotic product. MVP. It works.

Computing pioneer Doug Engelbart’s inventions transformed computing, but he intended them to transform humans.
Howard Rheingold provides a neat summary of Douglas Engelbart's seminal work. Firstly, the 'mother of all demos' should be required viewing for everyone. Secondly, grasping Engelbart's vision and why some of it has come to fruition while other parts haven't is still highly relevant today as we add robotics, internet of things and augmented reality to the toolbox.
Open source platform, based on Arduino technology. Ready-to-go programmable robot, from zero to expert.
Scratch compatibility is what I really like about this little robot, making it an easy entry point to robotics programming. Out of the box arduino compatible, with Scratch, Python and Java support at higher funding levels.
