A Robot Tour
Saturday, 08 January 2011

Find out what a top notch robotics lab can do. A short and very professional documentary on the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon should be enough to convince you that robots are the platform of the future - and not that distant a future.

Robots are fun to watch and fun to program and the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University seems to do quite well at capturing its share of the fun. In an effort to share with the rest of us Plum TV was invited to make a short program in its Masters of Innovation series about their activities. You can watch the resulting video below and enjoy the 20 minute spectacle of robots doing surgery, playing football and generally having a good time. 

 

 

On a more serious note, it just shows how far you can get when you put a group of enthusiastic people together and give them the resources and the time to build things. I've no doubt that some of the prototypes you can see in this video will become real products in the near future. Let's just hope that they have an open API and provide plenty of opportunity for follow-on programming fun.
