Bari robot checks up on patients

by Edwin

The Bari robot is a videoconferencing robot that is equipped with a couple of cameras to help doctors check on patients despite not being there physically at the hospital. In addition to the cameras, there is a screen and microphone to help the joystick-controlled robot keep in touch with the patient. It gives the patient a sense of relief as if the doctor is there in person, and could come …

Bumblebee gets groovy

by Edwin


Bumblebee might have been turned into a Camaro in the Michael Bay movie, but he’ll always remain a Beetle at heart, which is why he rocks to various tunes. The Beatmix Bumblebee grooves to all sorts of tunes whenever you plug him to an MP3 player, while adding beats and sound clips from the movie. No Energon cubes power Bumblebee this time as he relies on a mix of 4 …

Megatron is angry you haven’t seen his movie yet!!

by Fred

See My Movie!!!!

So maybe you’re thinking that Transformers is a dumb toy commercial. While it is based on the toys made in the early 80’s by Hasbro (Thank you Hasbro!) However the writing crew did a great job binding together a story that parallels the atmosphere of the original Gen I Transformers, while bringing new, and clearly up to date ideas to the big screen and introduce a whole new generation to …

Robot equipped with Tasers now

by Edwin


Remember the Taser XREP that we covered a couple of days ago? Well, apparently those guys at Tasers are pretty productive, as there is word of Taser working with iRobot Corporation to include tasers into the arsenal of robots. Yes sir – now law enforcers will be able to carry out its (sometimes destructive and inhumane) peacekeeping duties without risking life and limb from an exploding Molotov cocktail or otherwise. …

Medical Robot gives me the creepy crawlies

by Edwin


Hooray for nanotechnology, as Israeli scientists have successfully worked on a medical robot that measures a mere 1mm in diameter. What does this mean? It is small enough to crawl into our nose and ears, in addition to making their way through veins and arteries. While the very idea of that might turn some people off (including me), rest assured that these scientists won’t be using it for nefarious purposes …

Blubber Bots an interesting idea

by Edwin


Robots are extremely interesting things to look at, what more play with – and it is no different with the Blubber Bots. The Blubber Bot is actually a D.I.Y. robotic species that are smart enough to navigate their way autonomously without any external input and intelligently, avoiding collision with humans and other obstacles. They are more than capable of floating about peacefully like a jellyfish, dance a number, belt out …

HRP-3 Promet Mk-II to the rescue

by Edwin


Whenever I watch cartoons like Transformers (I just can’t wait for the movie to be released – even it it’s a turkey, I know I’ll still enjoy it. I wonder when will they make a big screen adaptation of Thundercats or G-Force?), it just tickles the imagination as to whether we will ever see a day when robots help us humans out in dangerous and dirty situations. The release of …

Transformers turn plush

by Edwin


Looks like no matter how hard and tough-as-nails the Transformers robots look like, they all have a soft side to them in the form of a plush toy. What makes these plush toys all the more interesting is the latent ability to transform, for example the good ol’ Optimus Prime turns into one plush truck by moving the right parts into position. I think this Transformers plush toy will appeal …
