The slick, seemingly flawless robots of our sci-fi dreams may not be the best kind of bots to play with our kids and help care for us when we're sick, research suggests.
Donald and Eric break out of the Crave podcast studio and visit to Marek Michalowski, co-creator of the Keepon Pro research robot and its toy spinoff, My Keepon.
This week, Donald and Eric are joined by the My Keepon robot's co-creator Marek Michalowski, who explains the dancing bot's origins and its road to commercial viability.
It was only a matter of time before the Crave podcast was invaded by robots. Fortunately, this week's robot overlord is the insanely adorable, soon-to-be-available My Keepon robot by BeatBots. The pint-sized dance bot is joined by its co-creator Marek Michalowski, who explains the robots origins and its road to commercial viability.
Priced at $49 and due out in fall of 2011, the My Keepon robot uses an advanced form of audio analysis to dance in perfect time with music. It's also ridiculously adorable.
Keepon, that robotic stack of tennis balls that loves to get down, will be released as a toy. What else are you gonna do with $40?
A man's dream toy, a weapon-wielding remote-controlled toy spider, nets nearly half a million hits on YouTube in one day. Will it live up to the hype once it's released?
Justin Bieber will join robotics company Tosy at CES 2012 on Wednesday, but we got a look at some of the company's other robots and they're pretty awesome.
The future may not be bright, but it will require shades if you want to be able to view your computer monitor and avoid a fight with Rowdy Roddy Piper. Little Printer puts the internet back onto paper, while invoked computing concepts put the internet inside a pizza box. Eric and Donald meetup with the Keepon Pro, and Neil Degrasse Tyson predicts the end of the West Coast.
Today's topics include Rowdy Roddy Piper, tiny printers, giant Keepons, LSD, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. If that's not enough to get you to watch, I don't think there's anything more we can do.
