Homemade Kit Robots Fighting in Korea!

Homemade Kit Robots Fighting in Korea!

Pow, Son!

This overlooked gem is a few months old, but we’re pretty sure more people need to see it, just because, you know, because fighting robots!

In addition to being a gee-whiz robo-fanboy amphetamine, the video also shows just how far homejobby kit robotics have come.

If any readers have info on these robots and their owners’ names, let us know in the comments!

KOSMEK has developed a robotic hand changer that can switch between robot tools automatically - and with high precision. 

The Hagiwara Lab in the Department of Information and Computer Science of Keio University's Faculty of Science and Technology is trying to realize a robotic brain that can carry on a conversation, or in other words, a robotic brain that can understand images and words and can carry on thoughtful communication with humans.

A train festival will be held from August 9 through August 17 at LaLaport Yokohama in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. The main display at the event will be a Shinkansen (bullet train) transforming robot called "Project E5".

Project E5 is made based on JR East's E5 series Shinkansen. It was exhibited to the public at the Tokyo Toy Show 2014, which took place in July, and became very popular.

Skeletonics at Maker Faire: Tokyo 2013 - AKihabaraNews.com

In addition to our exclusive close-up footage of Team Skeletonics' human-powered exoskeleton, luckily we also collected a few wide angle and close-up stills. Yeah, we've kinda been fawning over Skeletonics of late. But for good reason: you won't believe what they're working on.

Microtech Laboratory exhibited the ultra-small rotary encoder MES-6-125PST16C, a device that detects at high accuracy the rotational angle and speed of mechanical devices and motors, at International Robot Exhibition 2013.

"Typical rotary encoders are large industrial models mostly about palm-size, but this product is very small, able to fit on a fingertip."

Okay, Trask Industries, We're Infected - What's a Sentinel Robot?
Taking a lesson from the very successful campaigns of films like District 9 and Prometheus, Twentieth Century Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past has hit the internets with a slick, sincere Trask Industries website. In the X-Men universe, Trask Industries makes 30ft/9m-tall robotic mutant hunters known as "Sentinels."
Japanese Technology from the Future SATURDAY but was Supposed to Be Friday!

This week it’s Japan thinking about investing a bunch of cash and tech into cancer treatment in India, which is nice, NTT Data Canada has significantly upped some jobs predictions in Nova Scotia, and even we're saying "NTT Data Canada?", and SCHAFT Robotics has left the DARPA building, which is kind of a bummer, but intriguing.

JTFF - Japanese Technology from the Future Friday! - AkihabaraNews.com

This week it's robots, robots, and more robots. iREX robots have hijacked the JTFF - but true to form, the 60 images in this gallery represent the news that was in fact going down here in Japan today. We'll have more to say about iREX next week, but for now: Photos. Of. Robots! We hope you enjoy (we definitely, totally, absolutely did).

Taihei Environmental Science Center has developed a system that automatically performs water quality testing, and can detect bacteria such as E. coli. In the past, this work had to be done manually. The system uses three robots to completely automate all stages of the process, from collecting a predetermined amount of the sample, injecting agar, agitating, coagulating and inverting, to the placement and storage of the culture in incubators. This level of automation not only eliminates human error, substantially improving test accuracy, it also increases processing capacity.
