Robot week in USA

EDN magazine reported just few days ago that National Robotics Week has started. There are many robotics events arranged around USA. EDN magazine page from last Friday has a list of links to interesting articles on robotics. There are for example articles on Roomba sensors for hackers and building a power supply for your robot.

There is also an interesting link to Industrial robot made into an amusement ride video of an industrial robot that has been programmed to make an amusement ride.

This robot ride idea shown in the video might look a little bit extreme, sci-fi and dangerous. But the strange thing on this idea is that it has already been found it’s way to amusement parks: there is a robot ride in Legoland. The individual passengers use touch-screen terminals to customize their own 90 second long program.

    Noesis now includes a Roomba script. It will track your Roomba, store tracking data, allow you to visualize that data in a variety of ways, and, of course, turn that data into a randomized DOOM map.

    It would’ve been nice to get this done in time for DOOM’s 25th anniversary, but as it came and went
