I agree, Rob. The sleep robots are intriguing. I wonder what the criteria is for creating the art. If you thrash about in your sleep, does it create chaotic-looking art?

Whether it was their intention or not, the creators of the Davidson College robots are actually dealing with that slippery concept known as the "uncanny valley" (where humanoid robots give people the creeps). By sensing smiles are reacting positively, I would think they're helping to alleviate that creepy feeling. Nice slideshow, Liz.

This is very cool.  I really enjoy the work by Strukt.  It would great to see them partner with Banksy on more political work or David O'Reilly with social commentary. 

Simultaneous art can break down barriers.

Nice slideshow, Elizabeth. There's a lot to like here. The robots in drama are new to me. I love the robots who capture your sleep.

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.
