Robots Can Now Teach Other Robots, Thanks To RoboEarth

Robots are now learning from each other even tasks that haven't been programmed--a sign that they could soon take on bigger jobs. A demo conducted...

I agree: robots (or smart talking objects) need a cloud-brain!

What do you see when you look at the picture at right? Three young, attractive humans? Look closer.

Ms Haring also measures how close participants sit to the robot.

''We have three interaction tasks so we check if there is any change in the distance between them and the robot,'' she said.

EZ Robots are ready to roll ... or walk, or scuttle | GizMag.com | Talking things | Scoop.it

Ez-Robot, a small company based in Calgary, Canada, is aiming to start a new "revolution" in robotics. The company's new Revolution line is a series of small, hobby-sized robots with modular parts, easy-to-use features, and snap-together mechanics. The line consists of three new robot kits: a humanoid two legged walker, a rover with tracks, and a hexapod, or six-legged spider-bot.

 

Ez-Robot has been around since 2011, making robot controllers, servo motors, and robot control software. Previous products have concentrated on adding functionality to existing items – first by turning radio control toys into robots, and then adding intelligence and additional sensors to off-the-shelf robots like the Roomba and WowWee's Roboquad.

 

The company's three new robots are based around a simple sliding mechanical interface called the "Ez-Bit clip'n'play" technology, which allows chains of servomotors to be attached to create arms, legs, or even pan-tilt mounts for cameras. No tools are required, and all of the parts can be created on a 3D printer, if you have one. Ez-Robot will send you the patterns to make your own components.

Can robots be good companions on long space missions? Simon Engler spent four lonely months finding out

Quote: "A robotic companion is a robot that is designed to be easy and compelling for humans to form bonds with."

Good post. Isolation experiments are great place to study robot-human interaction.
