Video Friday: Ninja NAO, Robotic Refueling, and Too Many Legs
It's hard not to notice that that three of our four posts this week featured flying robots in one form or another. This isn't something that we do intentionally: our normal technique for coming up with subjects for articles is to just pick the absolute coolest thing that's happened in the last day or two, and sometimes, it's all about the flying robots.
What's worth pointing out, though, is that in general, it's true that there's been a heck of a lot of innovation in flying robots relatively recently. This week's mix of pure DIY goodness, a research project, and the (rumored) buyout of a UAV company provides a halfway decent summary of the aspects of this subfield of robotics that are being actively (and successfully) pursued. And then we had a dude with a cyborg arm playing drums, because we have to mix it up a little bit, right?
And we'll continue to mix it up with some awesome videos, because that's what Fridays are all about.
