Lazy Humans Make Robot Play Angry Birds For Them [video]

It was the innate desire of humans to lie around being lazy that led to the advent of the modern age. We worked to build machines so they would do all the hard-labor while we took a nap, and made the world remarkably easier for us. Intelligently though, we kept the fun part to ourselves. Apparently, even that is too much of work now, as the presence of this robot suggests. Jason Huggins built the Bitbeambot robot that has a server driven finger to pull the bird and launch it towards pigs in the game.

I Am Made Of Robots

I Am Made Of Robots

I Am Made of Robots is a project by Alex Varanese, whose work we already know to be excellent for a retro setting. This set shows a robot that would have felt at home in some 1950s sci-fi tropes.

We guess the evil side remains heavy for these robots.

Turtle Shell Robot Racers Take a Leaf out of Mario Kart

Turtle Shell Robot Racers Take a Leaf out of Mario Kart


You could call them Turtle Shell Robot Racers, but you can’t deny they look very familiar to Koopa shells, and that probably is half the charm of these racers. The racing bots were made by Michael Overstreet and a few friends, who can now enjoy racing the Koopa shells Mario Kart style in Kansas City. Many parts for these bots were printed using a MakerBot 3D printer, and a smartphone or more appropriately, a WiiMote can control these R/C racers.
