Siemens is building a swarm of robot spiders to 3D-print objects together
3D printing is still in its infancy, but it's starting to show signs that it might revolutionize the way we manufacture products. That said, current technology won't allow us to make anything larger than the printing machines themselves. Some smart ...

Willow Garage's office map as created by PR2
Willow Garage's office map as created by PR2
A SLAM (Simultaneous localization and mapping) is a technique used by robots and Autonomous vehicles to build a map within an unknown environment, or to update a map within a known environment, while keeping track of their current location. So basicly you attempt to build a map of your environment while moving, to identify where you are in relation to your sorroundings.

In recent years, the success of single-robot SLAM has led to more multi-robot SLAM (MR-SLAM) research. A team of robots with MR-SLAM can explore an environment more efficiently and reliably.

SLAM can be thought of as a chicken and egg problem: An accurate map is needed for localization while a absolute pose estimate is needed to build that map. This is the starting condition for iterative process. The complexity of the technical processes of locating and mapping under conditions of errors and noise do not allow for a coherent solution of both tasks. Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is a concept that binds these processes in a loop and therefore supports the continuity of both aspects in separated processes; iterative feedback from one process to the other enhances the results of both consecutive steps.

PLEO is an Autonomous robotic life form, modeled on a young Camarasaurus dinosaur.

PLEO is designed to mimic life, which means PLEO thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal. In general, a Life Form looks, moves, and behaves in ways that trigger a "belief of life". Sepcifically, PLEO has organic body language, exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings and has recognizable behaviors. PLEO' sophisticated sensory system has devices that enable him to hear, to see, to sense touch, and to detect objects. It is the newest member of your family!

• Every PLEO LifeForm includes: Companion Guide, Training Leaf, Authenticity ID Card, One Li-Polymer Rechargeable Battery, Charging cradle, and Universal voltage power Adapter.
• Not intended for children under the age of 12.
• Product Dimensions: 15 x 4 x 8 inches - Weight: 8.8 pounds.
• Pleo's Li-Polymer battery provides longer play time than 2009 Pleo. Recharging a depleted battery takes 4 hours.
• US/Non-U.S. Version includes: 100-240VAC 50/60Hz universal adapter
