    This forum CAN'T be dead!

    Hey, I've got a cat. Somebody get a box and a bottle of poison and let's prove Schroedinger wrong!

    Yeah, exactly. I haven't seen too many people in this forum.

    It is a disappointment.

    Well? Any offerings to help it along? This IS the General Science and Technology Forum. Has anybody here ever built a robot? I started to once, but had a problem keeping the little moron from keeling over. No gyro mechanism. I still want to build one, though. Honda built a bipedal 'bot that does pretty good at walking. It could even navigate up and down stairs without a problem. They're trying to hook up with MIT for the brain.

    Sounds good. I'll start a topic on Robots and AI.

    Oxigen,

    I saw that Honda 'bot on PBS too. I was very impressed by the mechanics, but its only motivation was the engineer's hand on its joy stick (feel free to run with that last part).

    I also read an interesting article last week which described the mechanics and design of a robotic snake. This idea struck me as being one of the more practicle robotic designs yet.

    I never really thought about robotic snakes, but now that you mention it, they'd be great for looking for trapped people after earthquakes and such.

    I believe NASA was interested in using it for exploring Mars.

    Here's the website where the article can be located. Also, if you like to tinker with mechanical stuff, this is a cool site:
