Random Robot Roundup

The Trossen Robotics Team writes, "We haven't even announced the new
TRC Project Contest, yet our creative members are already entering some
incredible projects!" Behold
the Lego NTX Autonomous Wall-E Robot. Robots.net reader Bill Rogers
 sent us a Slate
story on robots replacing human umpires and referees in sports and
a Reuters
video about an exoskeleton
for paraplegics.
Johan Tegin let us know about KTHand, a project to develop a cost
efficient robotic hand for research use. We also heard from Honey and
Dick, two robots from the future who like music and beam a podcast into
the past as a science project. So, if you're looking for a podcast of
independent music hosted
by two cantankerous and possibly offensive robots, check out Jukebox Review. The Swirling Brain
let us know about a pool
playing robot, a robotic
bicycle parking garage, a slashdot
article on the Willow Garage
open source humanoid robot, a 50ft
robot spider, a Wired
update on Stanford's robot chopper, and a robot that feels
without touching. Roland Piquepaille sent links to his latest blog
posts on robot phriends, robotic tuna, and robot rats. Know any
other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
