    This is a video of two Japanese artists who have had their faces projection mapped and tracked so they can have different animal and robot faces projected on them while they move around (previously seen before with a lady HERE). Pretty neat. I especially like the speakers-for... / Continue →

    This is a video of Empire Robotic's Versaball robot demonstrating its beer pong skills. Obviously, it's the exact opposite kind of robot you want showing up at your next keg party. Or one with chainsaws or machine guns for arms. If you're not familiar with Empire Robotic's V... / Continue →

    Seen here interviewing for a job at the circus after all the ball-balancing bears ran away, this is a video of an automated platform that can keep a ball bearing perfectly balanced in the middle, despite the interviewer's lackluster efforts to knock it off. Not to brag or anyt... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of Knightscope K5 security robots. They look like a cross between R2-D2, a Dalek, and the kind of buttplug you'd expect to find on a space station. Microsoft already tested a crew of them at its Silicon Valley campus. And you can rent some too, starting as ... / Continue →

    In this will all end very poorly news, researchers in South Korea have taught a little humanoid robot to pilot a flight simulator. Admittedly, it does pretty well. So, let's say in a couple years they have the technology for robots to fly passenger planes autonomously. Would... / Continue →

    Sucking specialist Dyson has just announced the Dyson 360 Eye, a robotic vacuum similar to a Roomba but allegedly much, much more advanced, and super suckier. It uses a 360-degree vision system to pick reference points in the environment and triangulate its location so it know... / Continue →

    This is a video from Unifiller showing off their line of robotic cake decorators. They can ice a whole cake AND add the little swirl and dollop decorations, pretty much rendering that sweet old lady at the grocery store obsolete. That's cool, I'm sure she has plenty of other ... / Continue →
