In this episode of the Crave podcast we examine the highs and lows of recent robotic advancements, including robot lightsaber duels, emotion-sensing animatronic cat ears, and a robotic mouth that is heebie-jeebies incarnate. We also take a look at a working, turbine-powered Batmobile, and a couple of Android-powered RC toys.
