Rob thank you for bringing this important issue to light, I think it is in deed a great idea. As time goes there are some great changes with technology. This course will actually help many people to keep up to what they already know and new things as well. Since it is also online based, I think it will be more interactive and enjoyable course. This is the best avenue of exploring the robot world. @Jeniffer, it is very true that this is a cant-miss course.

I second the motion for a webinar on this. Getting a closer look would indeed allow us to see just how far we've come in regards to our mechanical friends.

FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS

Thank you Rob for the information.  As with any technology, the evolution of components and products keeps growing and growing.  I'm finding a refresher course in the fundamentals is almost needed each year just to stay up to date. I think robotic systems will only improve as time goes by with dramatic changes over the next decade.  We are a long way from "rise of the machines" but the advances are absolutely striking.  Thank you again.

Great idea for a webinar, Rob, and a good chance to look under the hood of the robots we're all writing about.

I agree, Jenn. And we're going to have some great participants from the robotics industry. We'll have more info on that soon.

I can't think of a better topic than Robotics to start off our Focus on Fundamentals series. This is definitely a can't-miss course.

If you’ve noticed the recent news about electric cars and batteries, then it’s easy to wonder about the continuing wisdom behind public subsidies for EVs.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
A group of collaborators wants to recast MacGyver or a show similar to it with a female protagonist as part “The Next MacGyver” competition, in order to get young girls interested in STEM fields.
Biomimicry and 3D printing have come together in new swarming ant and butterfly robots that act very much like their insect counterparts, the inventions of German robotics firm Festo.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
