Maker Faire 2010 -pt4













I might have some video of this one later.



Anybots was there. And - I have to admit, there are times in the robotic field I feel sad. They just can't find a niche. To see how reduced down some of the Anybot machines have become, is a little depressing.

Remember I took these shots of their articulated bots a few years ago. Having just seen one of their machines on How I Met Your Mother just last week - I guess I was expecting more.

Not unexpectedly, these machines are too expensive for prime time. It's sad to see how much money they must have plowed into this to come to that conclusion. But hey - these new bots have a telescoping neck. High tech ya'll.
