The race to bring AI and robotics to consumers

Independent developer Anki made a splash at this year's WWDC when Apple introduced Anki Drive, an iOS car racing app centered on artificial intelligence and robotics. The San Francisco-based company is now set to release its first product, smart toy racing cars that are really mini-robots controlled by the app. CNET's Daniel Terdiman took them for a spin.

<p><b>Important features:</b> Good video autofocus, interchangeable lenses</p>

<p>If you're all about the cooking and want to share tips, tricks, and video lessons, unless you have a minion to help shoot, you need a camera you can set on a tripod and forget. While the <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-cameras/canon-eos-70d-body/4505-6501_7-35811192.html">Canon EOS 70D</a> dSLR doesn't have the greatest video quality I've seen, it's still pretty good and its autofocus is the best for tracking you while you move around doing your thing, and the video will still look relatively professional.</p>

<p>Plus it can handle different lighting conditions better than most point-and-shoots. However, unless you want your tomatoes to look like oranges, you have to change the default settings.</p>

Thanks to Canon's new autofocus system, this $1,200 dSLR delivers on speed.

With a sophisticated lower-limb system that incorporates a 43-point pressure-sensor array, the <a href="http://robotik.dfki-bremen.de/en/research/projects/istruct.html">iStruct</a> humanoid and apelike robot might be the next explorer to traverse the surfaces of distant planets.
<br><br>
The multilegged robot, developed by Germany's Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the University of Bremen, shows the advantages of actuated multi-point-contact feet, using a suite of sensors to monitor precise movements of the foot and ankle structures.
<br><br>
The result is an advanced balance and locomotion system inspired by physiology, which gives the machine unusually natural movement. The robot can walk forward, backward, sideways, and diagonally, with smooth transitions.
