Motion-controlled Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 8th, 2010

Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots have gone all futuristic on us. Zachery Shivers and Anne Flinchbaugh have created a motion-controlled version of the game as part of Texas Instruments’ Co-op Design Challenge. This version, unlike the original has plenty of servos and circuit boards underneath the ring.

But the main event here is TI’s accelerometer-equipped Chronos watch, which lets you translate actual punches into rock ’em sock ’em punches. Awesome.

Archos to release Android phone/tabletWe’ll probably hear more about it at MWC, but Texas Intruments issued a press release about Archos’s use of the OMAP3 processor in an upcoming “Internet Media Tablet” that runs on Android and doubles as a phone. There aren’t any pictures yet, but the spec sheet reads like an upgraded Archos 5.

Some features include a five-inch screen, up to a 500GB hard drive, a battery that will give you up to seven hours of video playback, and Flash support. The whole thing in a package just 10mm thick. They even mention HD video playback.
