It would be acceptable for people to shake your hand seeing that it was prosthetic, but they'd probably jump back if the cosmetic cover was used and they didn't realize it.


I concur with the hypothesis.



PS - I'm kind of afraid to look at the cardio chest thing. Is it gory? :



It's the less gory version actually, that one is not a real heart. The other 2 videos are more graphic and involve real and beating heart!

The Shadow Robot Hand





The most dexterous robot hand I know and they turn it into a massager......................... EXCELLENT!

The hand could also be equipped with tactile sensors (click the link on the top of this post).
I wish it isn't just the first real Human Touch Massager but the first FEMALE Robot Massager, all of it, not just the hand part.

Space Station Crew Assembles Dextre Robot During Second Spacewalk




ScienceDaily (Mar. 16, 2008) — Dextre, the final element of the International Space Station’s Mobile Servicing System, was put together during the second spacewalk of STS-123. Mission Specialists Richard Linnehan and Mike Foreman completed their 7-hour, 8-minute orbital stroll Sunday at 2:57 a.m. EDT.


Price tag for the Dextre arm, 209 million dollar. Canadian or US, I'm not sure, I think it's in US dollar.

COM-BAT - Spy Bat Robot






ANN ARBOR, Mich.—A six-inch robotic spy plane modeled after a bat would gather data from sights, sounds and smells in urban combat zones and transmit information back to a soldier in real time.

That's the Army's concept, and it has awarded the University of Michigan College of Engineering a five-year, $10-million grant to help make it happen.

Cyborg Insects


It's not just insects that could be used as snoops. Researchers have already developed remote control systems for rats, pigeons and even sharks. The motivation is simple: why labour for years to build robots that imitate the ways animals move when you can just plug into living creatures and hijack systems already optimised by millions of years of evolution?




These bugs are bugged, no seriously. Do click the link and watch the video, it's quite amazing.

NASA ATHLETE






NASA engineers are testing out a giant, six-legged robot that could pick up and move a future Moon base thousands of kilometres across the lunar surface, allowing astronauts to explore much more than just the area around their landing site.

The astronauts' 15-tonne living quarters, or habitat, could be mounted on ATHLETE before sending it to the Moon in a lunar lander. That would solve one major problem for NASA – how to lift the habitat off the lander, whose cargo area may sit up to 6 metres above the ground, and set it down at a desired location.


ATHLETE is definitely a very robust and a good multipurpose lunar robot. Unfortunately it's awfully slow, but it's totally understandable why the robot is so slow.

Here is a collection of Robots from the Osaka show. not sure if this has been seen yet. I love the six legged robots, and the way the soccer robots kick is amazing.

Nexi MDS Robot



Although NEXI is capable of speech, I don't know whether the voice in this video is real human voice or synthesized.
This robot is designed by MIT and partly funded by a Microsoft Research grant.

This is vaguely amusing and somewhat uninspiring but there is an interesting display of coordination.

DoD Issues 'Roadmap' for Unmanned Systems


GPS-aided unmanned systems range from the 13-ounce Tactical Mini-Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (TACMAV) with its 21-inch wingspan and reconnaissance and surveillance sensors through the well-known Global Hawk and Predator airborne systems to the Army’s 9.3-ton armed robotic vehicle and the Navy’s portable Swordfish unmanned underwater vessel. The Swordfish can perform low-visible exploration and reconnaissance in support of amphibious landing, MCM operations, and hydrographic mapping in very shallow water.

The roadmap was discussed in a December 18 briefing by Dyke Weatherington, deputy director of the Unmanned Aerial Systems Task Force that had recently delivered a 188-page report to the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The DoD’s long-term plan is to publish a “truly integrated Unmanned Systems Roadmap” in January 2009 that builds on the task force’s effort and increases the focus on manned and unmanned systems interoperability.


I do have plan to post UAVs and UUVs later on, also more military robots the likes of TALON/SWORDS. In the meanwhile, here's something you might find interesting.

Aeryon Scout


One word of advice, if it's dark, don't confuse these things with balloons.

As I have said VW is also developing a fully autonomous vehicle. It's still in early stages obviously.



And from BMW

SuperBot




SuperBot is a modular, multifunctional and reconfigurable robot. Conceptually, it is a set of individual robots that work together to move around and solve problems

"This research directly supports the Air Force vision of information dominance and the development of 'anywhere, anytime' operational readiness by enhancing the warfighter's ability to assimilate new information readily in a distributed fashion," Dr. Shen said.

"Future robots will be able to change their configurations and adapt to new and unexpected situations: after disasters, when exploring space, the ocean and in operations in hazardous environments," he explained. "They will be resilient to damage they suffer because of their self-healing properties."


NASA is also developing a similar robot, the TETWalker/ANTS, and of course NASA also have access to the SuperBot research. These robots are the precursor of new types of artificial life form.

Here's a video of Wall-E from the future pixar movie. It looks pretty cool but will be even better if they open it up to programming like loading different sounds etc.

RQ-3 DarkStar







The "R" is the Department of Defense designation for reconnaissance; "Q" means unmanned aircraft system. The "3" refers to it being the third of a series of purpose-built unmanned reconnaissance aircraft systems.


This could be one of those "TR" crafts (black project crafts). Well, they can reveal this one. I don't think they will reveal the more exotic ones such as the triangle or the one with 5 v-shaped bright lights. I assume those ships are black project ships.

Robocalypse News

I'm just going to post the headlines today, all from theregister.co.uk, which I can say they are rather hilarious. (as long as they don't come true)

Terminator kill-bots to be run by system called 'Skynet'

AI prof: The robot terrorists are coming! Aiee!

Pentagon: Our new robot army will be controlled by malware

Ten jobs that robots are eyeing up

New Laws of Robotics proposed for US kill-bots

US Army dalek assassins to pack mini-missiles?

US Navy ponders robot carrier planes

US Customs gets kill-droids for Caribbean

Reaper aerial killbots enlist mobile phones against owners

I'm not anti robot of course, but yes I have some concern about this. Since this robocalypse is not that far-fetched in my opinon.

That reminds me of the movie "The Iron Giant" A robot that crashed to earth and broke apart and it's head sent out a sensor that attracted the other parts to it.

Basically it's a fancy robotic balloon, but hey it looks cool. You definitely can confuse this one with ufos when it's dark
