AI News, Video Friday: Military Robots, Kissing Nao, and Automated Recycling

Video Friday: Military Robots, Kissing Nao, and Automated Recycling

We know better than anyone, though, that the robot news never ever stops, and it especially never ever stops on Fridays.

And to make it worth your while, we can promise you that it includes some actual demos of real robots, as opposed to just 45 minutes of talking heads (even if the talking heads are quite interesting):

The other interesting thing about this video is how explicit Lockheed is that missiles are just another type of UAV: people are suddenly concerned about armed killer robots, but strictly speaking, they've been around for a long, long time in missile form.

It's nice to see one video of the quadrotor inside relying on a motion tracking system followed by a second video of it outside and not having access to that level of positional information, but it's unclear whether it's using GPS or being piloted remotely.

This is still one of the biggest hurdles that drones have to cross: getting from precision flight in a controlled environment to precision flight where it counts.

With the college interns as project leads, the team, which also consisted of high school interns, created a robotic arm capable of picking up an egg using a computer and an Xbox Kinect sensor, with the help of 3D printers along the way.

As you watch this, keep in mind that the budget was apparently just a few thousand dollars, and before you watch it, note that there is some violence and mildly bad language that may make it NSFW.
