These Robots Want to Wish You Happy Holidays
Automaton has been blogging about robotics for over six years now. It's been an amazing journey, and every year that passes by we see robots getting better, faster, and more amazing. But 2013 wasn't just another year in the evolution of robotics; so much happened this year that we can say with certainty that 2013 was one of the best years for robots ever: We've seen tremendous activity in robotics starts-ups and VC funding; manufacturing robots have continued to diversify and advance as industrial automation enters a new era; robotics conferences saw record attendance and more and better work presented; big tech companies are paying close attention to robotics; and as the culmination of an already incredible year, the DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials were a huge success, exceeding everyone's expectations.
But it's time to take a break. A very short break. We'll be back soon with our regular posting schedule. In the meantime enjoy these special robot holiday videos. And we wish a wonderful Christmas/Holidays/Festivus to all humans and robots out there!
