Forget the beach balls and margaritas – nothing says relaxing day at the beach like robot-created poetry. Designer Yuxi Liu has created Poet on the Shore – an adorable AI-powered robot that rolls around the beach scribbling lines of poetic prose in the sand. Liu created the battery-powered robot for her Design Informatics thesis at the University of Edinburgh. The adorable mod cube uses four wheels on continuous tracks to easily and autonomously cruise over the sand. Equipped with an anemometer (a device that measures wind speed) as an antenna, the robot picks up on various environmental factors that are recorded into the machine’s data stream.

The robot’s vocabulary is programmed with general grammar and spelling conventions, but is free to arrange the words in any form it pleases. According to Liu, the robot “enjoys watching the sea, listening to the sound of waves lapping on the beach, the murmurs of the winds, children’s conversing, and the incessant din of seabirds. Most of the time, it roams alone to listen and feel. Sometimes, it writes verses into the sand, and watches the waves wash them away.” The Poet on the Shore is part of a series Liu created called, “I, Machine”, which explores the “sense, sociability and morality of machines.” + Poet on the Shore Via PSFK

The groundbreaking Telexitstance Robot Telesar V from researchers at Japan’s Keio University could bring us a step closer to a real out of body experience. The creators of Telesar V claim that the robot avatar can not only accurately mimic the movements of its operator, but also transmit back sensory experience to the user. Wearing a headset with virtual reality goggles, the user can see and hear what the robot ‘experiences’, and through a pair of sensor equipped gloves feel the shape and temperature of objects Telesar V touches or picks up.

Comments Off on DARPA’S Nano Robot Spy Hummingbird Moves Just Like a Real Bird!

AeroVironment has created a tiny, mechanical, flying bird that borrows from the natural movements of the hummingbird. The Nano Hummingbird is a flying robot created through a program sponsored by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) that is meant to be used in future indoor and outdoor surveillance missions. DARPA has requested a remote-controlled Nano Air Vehicle that can fly, hover, move forward and backward and be controlled without an external power source. AeroVironment’s Nano Hummingbird does all of that and more. Read the rest of DARPA’S Nano Robot Spy Hummingbird Moves Just Like a Real Bird!
