Let's Make Robots!

Robots I noticed...

These are robots I've found at other sites, thought I'd share.

My wife works for the Fort Worth's Child Study Center (a large reputable autism research center) -- and I play with robots and have taken master's classes here -- strangely, I've never met any of these people.  And some say it's a small world. Pfft.  I hate to be the skeptic but my wife was stating if you want to get a golden ticket to do research "tie it to autism research" in some way.

Any way, I win.  Whether it helps the advancement of robots, autism treatment, or both. :)

I like that - A flying robot which hurls itself at things.
