snake robot, as well as photos and video of KITT,
robot car used in a remake of the Knight Rider show from the 1980s.
The Swirling
Brain noticed a NetworkWorld
article about CMU's $14 million grant to improve their robot tank,
known as Crusher and a
Gizmodo story on the new-and-improved
Honda Asimo. Dave
