Welcome to the Robotarium

A tiny article
in The Portugal Resident alerted us to the June 12 opening of the Robotarium,
a sort of self-contained zoo of autonomous robot plants and animals. The
is the idea of artist Leonel
According to the website, "The Robotarium is a structure of metal and
glass, in which a set of totally autonomous robots will start 'to live',
divided in different species and with different characteristics and
capabilities. Some robots have wheels and resemble small vehicles
similar to the ones that currently are used in space exploration; others
will be similar to bugs, small animals and plants; others will be
different from any thing that can be found in nature."
The Robotarium X webpage includes
photos of the exhibit and the individual robots.
