Pack Expo attendees were treated to frozen yogurt at Yaskawa's Motoman Robotics booth, where a dual-arm robot mixed the soft serve treat with toppings.  
The robotic kiosk employed a Motoman SDA Series Robot, which featured a human-like head to make it more kid-friendly.

I tried to go back and try the frozen yogurt, Rob, but never made it. The show was just so huge. It encompassed the East, South and North Halls (upper and lower level) of McCormick Place in Chicago.

Great slideshow, Chuck. I liked the additional shots and info on Scary Guy. Loved the jellyfish. But most of all, did you get one of the robotic soft-serve ice cream treats?

An Israeli design student has created a series of unique pieces of jewelry that can harvest energy from default movements of the body and even use human blood as a way to conduct energy.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Help us recognize engineers who are ahead of the trends and making big moves in the design engineering community.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
