Since being acquired by Google, the Boston Dynamics team has advanced their world famous robot mule. The most noticeable change must be in the power source, it appears to now be fully powered by batteries as the whine and smoke of the engine are now gone.
This technical advance again illustrates the remarkable strides we are making with robot development and I would really like to have a look at the systems in this robot. The engineering designs should be awesome. We want open source 🙂

This nature inspired robot obviously takes from a dragon fly or similar insect. When we reach to the point of putting cameras and such on these things then we have the ultimate spy bots not to mention applications we can’t even dream of now. The systems on this small robot must be so cool, battery, power system, actuators, etc. Why can’t these be open source.
Nano UAV (flying ‘somewhat robotic’ drone) weighs in at 16 grams and good enough for military uses. I bet you’ll have a hard time realizing you’re being watched…. but still I haven’t seen much development in drone countermeasures though, maybe use an anti-drone drone.
Self driving cars are now inevitable and will most likely be commercially available in the very near future. These are robots and this is just one more application of robotics and a result of the strides made in the implementation of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and control algorithms.

Start making robots at home, maybe not the simplest robot mechanically but still a good one to start with. This video shows how to make a walking robot at home. Very basic robot that’s why it may be a good starter project.

I think exoskeletons are well on there way to being available commercially and helping paralyzed people walk again. This will be much more convenient when we have the required mind control interfaces so that if we do not have muscle control we can still control the exoskeleton directly with our minds 🙂 . I love when technology is applied like this to help people although the first full scale applications will most likely be military.
Cool video of new version of Honda’s Advanced Step in Innovative MObility (ASIMO) showing ASIMO interacting with kids, dancing with friends and meeting and greeting. Humanoid robots are easier to integrate in society as they can interact with many of the same devices and machinery as humans.
