Article about new Sony music player Rolly (sell this player)
Sony turned out that only Rolly music player in black. A surprise blown by the FCC only last week. At least we can ask, in the colorful end caps at a price of ¥ 1500 (about 15 dollars) each. Of course, if you scoffed the original Rolly, then the 19th April, the new Japanese release ¥ 40,000 (about $ 400) Dance speaker Bot will probably not tug at your emotions pawnshopped either.

Article about system HAL 9000 and SAL 9000
Designed as a machine artificial emotional intelligence, the HAL 9000 SAL 9000 and require human interaction to improve performance. Represented by a camera eye blue and female voice, SAL 9000 served as a guide to monitor possible reactions from the previously disabled HAL 9000. Both machines include a keyboard and audio input to communicate with intelligent life carbon-based (read: us). The HAL 9000 is adept at facial, vocal, and the recognition of the vital signs and makes decisions based on a full understanding of logic. HAL has many responsibilities while acting as the brain and central nervous system Discovery 1. Although HAL appears to be programmed to protect the crew, there are obvious shortcomings and inherent in its programming logic, which – spoiler alert – to commit homicide to solve orders. More after the jump.

March 28, 2008

The always crowded ROBO-ONE competition in Japan has been hotter than ever this year with bi-ped robots attack and the other branch tearing branch. Okay, it may be somewhat of a stretch, but you can be assured of serious throw downs, um, has decreased. Interestingly, we heard that the i-SOBOT competition was also included (quarrels, anyone?), And that the family’s King Maru Kizer won gold. It’s all good, fine and good, but we know what you look – take a (long) look at the hundreds of photos waiting in the reading link below.


Wow, hovering drone could report for work at Miami-Dade police station

March 28, 2008

We have not even afraid when we heard that floating drones Big Brother was on the way to work in Britain, but somehow the guys have managed to migrate to America’s east coast. Admittedly, the pilotless drones – hand work with good intentions of Honeywell – are scheduled to report in the Miami-Dade police are not exactly the same, but they are to be expected for similar tasks. More specifically, they resolved to monitor “urban areas with an eye towards full employment and the fight against crime.” According to a spokesman for the department, the only fuzz look out in the “tactical situations as an extra set of eyes,” but do not be shocked to see flashing lights from a vehicle without wheels next time you are rolling (a To little) fast to South Beach.


Meet Robot ApriPoko, Toshiba’s channel surfing helper-bot

March 28, 2008

Finally, a robot that “receives”. Researchers at Toshiba in Japan have created a talking bot that can be used as a voice-activated universal remote control in addition to the formulation of pitches closes on human beings. The 5-pound, 11-inch-tall android is called ApriPoko, and the ability to learn to watch electronic control her and ask questions about his behavior. When you use an infrared device, the robot senses signal and ask the user “What did you just do?” If you say something like “I turned on the TV”, undertake the command to the memory, and you can carry out these functions by voice. Apparently, the little boy is still in R & D, but there are plans to turn this technology into a consumer device – one which the company swears not to kill in your sleep.


Robot babysitter to care for children when you are not near

March 26, 2008

Unmenschliche babysitters are not all that uncommon in the whole world, but a new creature, recently in a Japanese department store is a stroke of luck for shopaholics with rugrats in tow. Developed by Tmsuk, 1.4 metres tall bot is employed by a dealer in Fukuoka to discuss wild youths, the revised deducted from their parents. Reportedly said critter has an integrated camera and projector, a colorful yellow and white outfit, and the ability to identify by name children based on a particular day, that every kiddo carries while playing. Obviously, the manufacturer is not only looking for one or two slide them into each business in Japan – oh no, it is hoping to create similar robots that might one day “-customers through the course of a business,” fill their carts whisper or the joke of the day in a French accent in their ears.


NASA won’t dampen exploratory spirit of Mars rovers

March 26, 2008

Back in November, we knew it was not looking at the two Mars rovers, but it seems that both Spirit and capabilities will continue to make them thangs after letter foreshadowing their doom was lifted. It is reported that education was mandated slash 4 million U.S. USA, from the draft budget only yesterday, which would have forced the Spirit of sleep, and limited opportunities for possible mandates that teams will be sent every day (compared with a daily now). As it stands, NASA released confirmation that neither the substance will be affected, but given the apparent belt-tightening we, as a curious whether the Scarecrow would still see the liftoff next year.
