Radio Controlled excavator

by Edwin

Now here’s a little boy’s toy that ought to get dads all excited as well, since it has something to do with both demolition as well as reconstruction.

Voice controlled Quad-copter out of MIT

by Mark R

I loved seeing Parrot’s AR.Drone at CES, and I had just as much fun watching the video of this quad-copter, created by the Robust Robotics Group at MIT.

by Mark R

Imagine if Jiminy cricket in Pinocchio was a robot, and he would be on his shoulder like you see in this picture. Granted, Steven Spielberg sort of did that in A.I., but the Wearable Telecommunicator is a reality. The Wearable Telecommunicator has been developing experimental technology for a robot that is operated by a remote user so he or she can see, hear, and even gesture through the shoulder-mounted robot. …

We’ve discussed mind-controlled technology before, such as the Star Wars Force Trainer. A Toronto-based company named Interaxon has used mind control technology for how you really want to use it: to turn on the lights. Interaxon (see video after the jump) is having a special display of this technology for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Their display allows visitors to control lights at Niagara Falls (seen above) as well as …
