Random Robot News Roundup

The Shadow Robot Company
has issued a press
release (PDF format) about their new project to
develop robotics technology for rehabilitation of patients suffering
from chronic pain. Randy Dumse of New Micros, Inc. sent us links to
several stories including an Electronic
Design story on Robot Cars and a PhysOrg story on the
MIT entry in the upcoming DARPA Urban Challenge.
Randy also noticed a PhysOrg article about the debut of Nano
Soccer at the 2007 Robocup. Meanwhile, Roland Piquepaille reported
on two more robot stories in his blog: a 1mm medical robot and
a story on cyborg
insects (also see our previous story on the cyborg
bugs). And The Swirling Brain has been swirling with stories too,
including a Fox news story
on a Taser-equipped Packbot, and a tiny robot at a Japanese
toy show. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we
should report? Send 'em our way please.
