The K 10 series seem robust enough for most exploration expeditions and if they can actually implement an inductive charging solution the robot will be able to explore vast regions of planetary surfaces far longer than any solar-powered rover.

INTELLIGENT ROBOTICS

 Excellent post Steve.  Good information.  I was unaware of this program and the status of efforts NASA is undertaking with robotic systems. One of the things I find really interesting is the seemingly small "footprint" or wheel base these systems have. I would have expected a much wider "stance" to preclude tipping.  You did mention the systems would steer away from terrain to steep or rocky so as to maintain the upright condition but I wonder if this is always possible.   Again, excellent post.

Good article on the advancements of intelligent robotic design.   I especially like the design goal of reliable, robust and safe systems.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
