DailyDirt: I Believe That Robots Are The Future. Teach Them Well, And Let Them Lead The Way...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Robots are incredibly useful machines that are becoming more and more important for everyone. Kids are building them. Robots are building more robots. Pretty soon, we'll be surrounded by robots... oh sorry Roomba, we already are. Here are some cool videos and some examples of robots that are helping us out (and not trying to enslave us). By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Re. Racing helmet

    Neat video, and I do love to watch CNC machines make stuff out of dross; however, it would have been neat to see someone doff the resulting helmet, if only to see if the visor really would drop down over the face! Otherwise, its a nice sculpture, but not a functional helmet... :-)

    Robots in arms

    Just don't make robots that carry guns autonomous and we'll all be fine until someone gets a hold of the controller.
