Video Friday: Meet the DARPA Robotics Challenge Teams

UPDATED 12/21/13: DARPA posted more team profile videos, and we've included them below.

The DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials officially kicked off this morning, and you can actually watch some of the action in real time directly from the Homestead Miami Speedway, thanks to DARPA's live feeds. (Don't be disappointed if nothing much is happening when you tune in; that's how it's supposed to be, so be patient and soon you'll see robots doing things, or at least trying to do things.) DARPA has also been posting video profiles of the DRC teams, and that's what we'll bring you today in this special edition of Video Friday. And keep checking back for our continuing coverage of the DRC Trials!
