Botropolis: This week in robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2010

Happy Friday everyone. It’s time to take a look at what’s happening in the wonderful world of robots. We covered quite a bit this week over at Botropolis. And as far as we know, no robot has killed a human this week or through inaction allowed him to be killed, so that’s always something. Also we haven’t seen any reports of humans being abducted by robots and taken to secret lairs. But they are still taking our jobs at the same rate. So it’s been a good week. Here’s some of what we covered this week.

TrueCompanion: The World’s First Sex Robot Doll.

ENON: The Robot Salesman.

Predictions: Spot Robots On Time Traveler Transit Map.

When AT-ATs walk through bad neighborhoods

When AT-ATs walk through bad neighborhoods
When you’re part of the evil Empire, you have to conquer worlds. Street by street if you have to. There’s at least one street somewhere, where they made a mockery of the Empire almost as badly as the Ewoks did. Maybe even worse. That AT-AT must have had a long shameful walk home.

This Hasbro Star Wars vehicle was customized by Graffiti artists EASE and JK5 under the direction of SUCKADELIC. It’s done in the Aurebesh language, a fictional letter system created for the 6 Star Wars films. It’s being auctioned off at Christies, so you probably can’t afford it.

Wiispray: Wiimote becomes graffiti spray can

Wiispray: Wiimote becomes graffiti spray can
This Wii Remote turned graffiti spray can is from the mind of a student at Bauhas-University in Weimar, Germany. He stuffed the contents of a Wiimote in a can in hopes that he can create a sort of social virtual graffiti wall. I’m not sure what the Playstation buttons are all about. I’m guessing they were handy.

This is actually a great idea and could lead to a fresh kind of art simulator if you think about it. Heck maybe the walls of “the hood” can be upgraded so kids can paint stuff that you can actually get rid of.
