Tomorrow Daily 117: Upgraded Atlas robot, an adorable robot press conference, and more

On today's show, we discuss the DARPA Robotics Challenge (and the rebuilt Atlas robot entering the competition), explain how you can sign up for a free online class about alien life (taught by a Harvard professor), and get gooey over the cutest robot press conference of all time.

It's almost the weekend, which means it's our last show of the week. We've got some great stuff, though, no slacking here: DARPA's Robotics Challenge will feature Atlas, a robot we've seen before, but has been almost entirely rebuilt from the ground up and is ready to compete; Harvard is offering a free online course intended to help anyone understand more about searching for alien life; and vStone in Japan hosted an all-robot press conference and introduced us to two adorable little robots who could assist the elderly someday.

We weren't kidding, it's a jam-packed show. Enjoy it, and we'll see you next Monday!
