Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 7, 2013 9:02 AM

I love Mindstorms and Lego Robotics. As a middle school teacher in the 80's I'd hold sumo wrestling robot tournaments for the kids. All teams started with the same tools.  Winners were the best pushers!  Motivation was off the charts.

Robots transform into furniture at EPFL

Robots transform into furniture at EPFL | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
Scientists from the Biorobotics Laboratory (BIOROB) at EPFL in Switzerland have developed small robotic modules that can change their shape to create reconfigurable furniture. Like Lego bricks, these robotic pieces, or Roombots, can be stacked upon each other to create various structures. Each piece has three motors that allow the module to pivot with three degrees of freedom, and each also has a battery and wireless connection.

Robot can be programmed by casually talking to it (w/video) | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Robots are getting smarter, but they still need step-by-step instructions for tasks they haven’t performed before. Before you can tell your household robot “Make me a bowl of ramen noodles,” you’ll have to teach it how to do that. Since we’re not all computer programmers, we’d prefer to give those instructions in English, just as we’d lay out a task for a child...Read More....
