The Pentagon Has Designed A Terminator Robot Which Will Save Lives

The United States Department of Defense has just unveiled a man-sized machine that bears an uncanny resemblance to something produced by Skynet. Ironically enough given its appearance, it's actually going to be saving lives - it's a disaster relief robot.

How NASA And A Marine Robotics Firm Will Change Space Exploration

While most of us were eagerly readying ourselves for Easter, NASA was hard at work on something completely different. A team from the space agency was in Nanaimo last week, collaborating with robotics firm Seamor Marine on a project which could just change the face of space exploration.

Need A Drink? $280,000 PR2 Robot Knows How To Fetch Beer

If you weren't already a little jealous of the guys at Willow Garage, today's story might just push you over the edge. They've trained their PR2 platform to fetch them beer while they're working. Yeah - not only can they drink on the job, they've a robot assistant to bring it to them.

Have A Look At How Far Honda's ASIMO Robot Has Come

Over a decade ago, Honda unveiled the revolutionary ASIMO, which today remains one of the best-known humanoid robots in the world. Since unveiling it way back in 2000, Honda has been hard at work making the robot better, faster, and stronger - today, we saw the result of that work.

These Robotic Mice Are Programmed To...Uh...Mate.

So, uh...fair warning, thisz story might potentially be a little bit not-safe-for-work. Scientists at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology have designed several mice-shaped robots whose only purpose is getting it on. Apparently, this is supposed to help them study evolution.

Weird. 


Microsoft's Giving Us A Look At The Future Of Robots In The Office

Today, we've been given a glimpse into the future of the workplace. Not surprisingly, it involves robots. Microsoft's Situated Interaction Project is a near-fully automated, robotic workplace, designed to show that robots and humans can interact - and work together - on a meaningful level.

Just How Serious IS Heartbleed? You Probably Don’t Want To Know.

I'd like to interrupt my regularly scheduled posts to talk about a very serious issue: Heartbleed. Although plenty of websites have already patched the vulnerability, many users don't realize how serious the situation actually was. In short, it might be the worst security flaw seen in decades. 

Robots Made Out Of Paper Are Now A Thing, Apparently

Have you ever wanted to create your own robot? Thanks to a researcher at MIT, you now can - provided you have a few simple electronic components with a total value of about $20. Oh, and paper. Lots of paper. Yes, I'm serious.

The United States Navy Now Owns A Tablet-Controlled Robot Helicopter

The Office of Naval Research today announced that it's created the future of combat support - a robotic helicopter, linked up to a simple touchscreen tablet that a soldier can use to send the chopper into missions too perilous for human pilots.

Toyota Is Securing Efficiency By Replacing Robots With Humans

No, that's not a typo. While many automotive manufacturers are embracing robots in the workplace, Toyota is apparently taking the opposite approach: they're actually reducing the number of robots used in the production line. Even stranger, they're actually becoming more efficient as a result.
