Flying Robot Rockstars

"KMel Robotics presents a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are bells. Lots of bells."

Have you ever seen drones playing music? No?

Bero. Be The Robot

Bero. Be The Robot | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

"BERO – Be the Robot was originally funded on Kickstarter. With 334 backers and raising over $46,000, BERO has now been fully launched by Reality Robotics. For more information on the project and previous pledge categories please read below:

 

Reality Robotics Limited proudly presents the Be the Robot™ Project!

What is the Be the Robot™ project you may ask?

It is an expertly-engineered-5-motor-wireless-animated-mobile-robotic-toy-platform that features an advanced internal operating system for communicating through an open source APP with an Android™ (and iOS coming later) smartphone through Bluetooth™. After digesting all that, we thought we would summarize our awesome robot as “BERO” (pronounced, Bee-Ro), a nickname for our Be the Robot™. What better companion could there be for your Android™ smartphone?"

Poppy, a 3D-printed humanoid robot that defies conventions | GizMag.com

Poppy, a 3D-printed humanoid robot that defies conventions | GizMag.com | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

A new 3D-printed robot called Poppy is helping a team of French researchers study bipedal walking and human-robot interaction. They were able to design, fabricate, and assemble a relatively large robot for around €8,000 (US$11,000) including servo motors and electronics. That's about a third the cost of commercial robots in the same size category like the RQ-TITAN, and is still cheaper than smaller humanoids like the Aldebaran Robotics NAO. And best of all, they plan to make their design open source.

 

One of the ways they managed to keep the cost down is by using lightweight materials, which means the robot requires less powerful (and cheaper) servo motors. Standing 84 cm (33 in) tall, Poppy weighs in at just 3.5 kg (7.7 lb). The Sony QRIO, by comparison, was 26 cm (10 in) shorter yet it weighed twice as much. Still, most of the cost lies in the robot's 25 servo motors: it utilizes 21 high-end Robotis Dynamixel MX-28s, two MX-64s, and two AX-12s. It's powered by a Raspberry Pi, and is equipped with 16 force-sensing resistors, two HD cameras, a stereo microphone, and an inertial measurement unit. Poppy's "face" is an LCD screen which can be used to show emotions (or to debug).

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 2, 2013 3:07 PM

"The growing power of computer vision is a crucial first step for the next generation of computing, robotic and artificial intelligence systems. Once machines can identify objects and understand their environments, they can be freed to move around in the world. And once robots become mobile they will be increasingly capable of extending the reach of humans or replacing them."
