Kamigami is a cute robot bug you build yourself

The basic design of each Kamigami robot is based on company founders Nick Kohut and Andrew Gillies’ academic work in biomimicry, which involved building machines that could walk like insects. When fully assembled, each Kamigami has six legs like a real bug, with three of the feet facing forward and three facing backward in an alternating pattern. This means that once you put it together and start controlling it with the app, there’s always one set of legs driving the robot forward, letting it run very, very fast.

The legs are one of the main things you’ll have to assemble yourself, along with the distinctive plastic shell based on one of six different insects, including a cute ladybug, a shiny rhinoceros beetle and a fierce-looking scorpion. Each kit comes with a pre-assembled central unit containing the electronics module and gearbox, equipped with useful sensors like an accelerometer, gyroscope, IR transmitter and two IR readers, as well as speakers and LED lighting. You’ll be asked to download the app on your phone and sync with the base unit via Bluetooth, after which the program will walk you through assembling the Kamigami.

It’s actually pretty simple, though a bit nerve-wracking. At first I was scared I would accidentally break the plastic pieces, but they proved to be pretty sturdy as I slotted them together and bolstered them with black rivets. But while I managed to put together the Kamigami in under an hour, it was still somewhat challenging. The rivets are hard to remove if you make a mistake, and some of the tabs are really small and hard to manipulate: I could see a kid getting frustrated and handing it off to their parents to finish.

Once you’ve got the legs and shell attached, you can just jump into rest of the app and have the bug skittering around almost immediately. You control the robot’s actions directly using the joystick on your screen, or select preprogrammed actions like a figure eight or a little dance. A coding mode lets you program simple movement, light and sound patterns for your bug. There’s even a battle mode that allows two Kamigami to wrestle physically in a sumo match and shoot virtual ray guns at each other.

Vorpal Robotics Launches Educational Robot Donation Program

Six-Legged Robots Inspire Students to Study STEM

<![CDATA[

]]>

STOCKHOLM, N.J., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — This past summer a group of Appalachian girls in a rural mountain community did something they’d never before imagined: they built and programmed walking hexapod robots.

Vorpal Robotics will donate fifty radio controlled, programmable hexapod robots to educational organizations and provides incentives for others to join the program.

The Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education (PAGE), located in Madison County, North Carolina, runs a six-week summer educational program. They had never fielded a robotics activity before, but this year Vorpal Robotics donated eight scampering, radio-controlled, programmable hexapods.

Deborah Hicks-Rogoff, Executive Director of PAGE, explained: “Having a STEM learning activity featuring robotics was an exciting opportunity for girls in Madison County, North Carolina.  PAGE students live in economically vulnerable rural communities.  A robotics learning activity offered a chance for Appalachian girls to experience 21st century learning in a fun atmosphere.”

“The girls were immediately excited to see a robot walk and dance,” said Duke Engineering student Caroline Potts, who supervised the activity. “We started building in small groups, and their interest deepened. One girl said, ‘I can’t believe I’m building a robot!’ and another cut other activities just to get more programming time!”

“We were thrilled with the success at PAGE,” commented Steve Pendergrast, founder of Vorpal Robotics. “It only took a few ultra-cool robots and one motivated college intern to open a whole new world of technology to these students. That’s why we’re launching our donation program—to inspire more students.”

Vorpal Robotics will donate fifty of their hexapods to educational organizations in the coming months. And they are offering incentives for others to donate, too. Organizations receive not only the robots but also free consulting on how to use them in the classroom.

“In my ten years teaching robotics,” Pendergrast continued, “I’ve never seen anything like the hexapods for inspiring students. Something about these robots—able to walk, dance, and perform outlandish and interesting movements—captivates people.”

Organizations who wish to receive donations as well as individuals who want to help expand the program can find details on the VorpalRobotics.com home page.

“We want to spread the word that technology is an awesome topic to study,” Pendergrast said. “This program will help bring that message to more students.”

SpaceX aims for two launches in two days, droneship robot spotted again

NASASpaceflight.com has reported that two SpaceX launches have slipped five days, with SES-11 and Iridium NEXT-3 respectively scheduled for launch on October 7th and 9th. Initially planned for October 2nd and 4th, the concurrent delays mean SpaceX will still attempt to conduct two launches within approximately 48 hours of each other.

Earlier this summer, SpaceX managed to successfully launch three Falcon 9 missions in just 12 days, with two of those launches and booster recoveries occurring in less than 48 hours. As such, the company has readily demonstrated its ability for rapid-fire launch cadence and a willingness to schedule missions as few as 24 hours apart, if necessary.

While SpaceX is only able to intermittently achieve such a cadence, their ability to launch rapidly will likely mature as LC-40 is reactivated and the company finds itself with three active launch pads. This is the only way SpaceX can achieve a planned cadence of weekly launches by 2019, and it would also help the company conduct several dozen potential launches next year, 28 of which presently have tentative launch dates in 2018.

If all goes according to plan, the second week of October will see two Falcon 9 vehicles launch satellites into Earth orbits and then return to their respective oceans for recovery aboard both of SpaceX’s autonomous droneships; Just Read The Instructions in the Pacific, and Of Course I Still Love You in the Atlantic.

Of Course I Still Love You‘s mythical robotic companion was spotted out and about aboard the droneship earlier this week by Julia Bergeron, an active SpaceX fan and resident of Florida’s Space Coast. More exciting still, the launch of SES-11 will be the second time the telecommunications company has chosen to fly on a refurbished Falcon 9, and SpaceX’s third commercial reuse of an orbital-class rocket.

SpaceX’s next Eastern mission, Koreasat 5A, may be pushed back at least several days from its tentative October 14th launch date due to the aforementioned delays. SES-11 may be the last launch from the LC-39A launch facility for some time, requiring Koreasat 5A to launch from SpaceX’s second Eastern pad, LC-40. LC-39A needs a hiatus from launch activities for at least several weeks to give SpaceX’s pad engineers time needed to modify the facility for Falcon Heavy. Extensive on-pad testing for Falcon Heavy will precede its inaugural launch attempts, and that process will demand a level of flexibility that an operational launch facility simply could not support over a period of several weeks or months.

Still, SpaceX is unlikely to allow Falcon Heavy to seriously intervene with or delay its customers’ launches, and evidence of LC-40 nearing launch readiness is currently hard to find. SpaceX employees are reportedly busy assembling and outfitting the Transporter/Erector/Launcher (TEL) that will allow for launches to begin again at the newly repaired pad, but a significant amount of work remains. If LC-40 ends up requiring more time to reach operational status, LC-39A will undoubtedly continue to support commercial launches until it can be seamlessly replaced. A slower reactivation of LC-40 will also inevitably result in delays of some sort to Falcon Heavy’s inaugural launch date, pushing the massive rocket’s first liftoff well into December 2017 or the first few months of 2018.

Destiny 2’s weirdest Easter egg is a robot dance party (update)

Destiny 2 is a game filled with little mysteries. Sometimes those mysteries pay off, either in the form of in-game lore and items or with real-life signals from the dev team as to what their next steps are. I’m at a loss with this one, though. After showing it around to the folks in the office, none of us have any idea what’s going on.

I was running a loop on Io, in a region called the Giant’s Scar, trying to unlock the MIDA Multi-tool exotic scout rifle. The goal was to get 50 precision kills and 25 multi-kills on a single magazine and the easiest thing I could think of was to shoot Vex in their big shiny tummies for as long as I could stand it.

The second expansion for Destiny 2 will have something to do with the warmind named Rasputin.

About 20 minutes in I came around a corner and, well … you can see for yourself in the video above. There’s four Vex that have been ensorcelled by some kind of floating, eight-sided object. There’s an option to interact, which I did, but nothing happened. I think my confusion comes through even though my mic was off. I looked high and low, and couldn’t see any other nearby options to interact or any changes that occurred after my interaction.

Shortly after this video ended, the object vanished and I haven’t been able to make it reappear. The cave is there, on the north east side of the region underneath the start location of an adventure.

Looking back at the video, you can clearly see the sigil for Rasputin, an artificial intelligence from the original Destiny. That same symbol has appeared on the official Bungie poster teasing the game’s first two expansions. I used the Shazam app to identify the music, and it appears that it’s a portion of Frideric Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks.

If you hear the music anywhere else in the game, let us know here in the comments. And if you have anything else to add to the Mystery Of The Dancing Robots, drop me a line.

Update: Turns out this impromptu dance party isn’t an Easter egg, after all. It’s part of a quest handed out on Io.

But it’s also symptomatic of new and improved infrastructure working behind the scenes in Destiny 2. Personal quests, public events and even story missions from the main campaign can and do take place live in shared environments throughout the game world. Hanging around in one place long enough to see something weird happen is a feature, not a bug.

Six-Legged Robot Launches Its Very own Kickstarter Marketing campaign

STOCKHOLM, N.J., Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — For the very first time, a Kickstarter project has released its possess marketing campaign. On September 12 the Vorpal Combat Hexapod—an open source, 3D printed, wi-fi walking robot—used just one of its six robotic legs to press the “Start” button on the well-known crowdfunding web-site, triggering its possess marketing campaign to go dwell to Kickstarter’s tens of millions of backers.

“We gave the honor to the oldest surviving prototype hexapod,” remarked Steve Pendergrast, founder of Vorpal Robotics, LLC, the developer of the product or service. “Its title is Scrum. Every single Vorpal Combat Hexapod has an individual title.”

While fairly spidery seeking as they scamper across a tabletop or flooring, the hexapods sport whimsical eyes and other decorations, producing them seem more like cartoon people than arachnids.

Up to sixty diverse motions can be activated by the hexapod’s tailor made Bluetooth gamepad, which is also 3D printed. Because of this flexibility, the hexapod can be utilized to perform video games applying appendages attached to its accent port. These appendages are—you guessed it!—also 3D printed. Joust, Capture-the-Flag, Fidget Spinner Obstacle, and other video games are by now readily available, with more in the pipeline.

“This is a fantastic platform for enjoyable activities that promote STEM instruction,” ongoing Pendergrast. “Faculties with 3D printers can fabricate the plastic components on their own and then obtain very low-price kits with the electronics and motors from our Kickstarter marketing campaign. They can even encourage learners to layout their possess 3D printed attachments.”

The organization also delivers comprehensive kits that include things like all 3D printed components, and even thoroughly assembled hexapods for people who just want to perform video games and software.

The Vorpal process also supports the MIT Scratch drag-and-drop programming language. Many schools by now use Scratch to introduce programming to learners, so this builds on a process quite a few lecturers by now know. Students can even generate new leg motions applying Scratch and add them to gamepad buttons for use in the course of video games and activities.

“Scrum the hexapod released this project on Kickstarter,” Pendergrast remarked, “but it will be his descendants who will go out into the world to teach little ones about science, technological know-how, engineering and math.”

Kuri robot is a personal paparazzi that roams your house taking candid photos

Why it matters to you

Sometimes, capturing those candid, fleeting moments in your household can be a challenge. Not so with Kuri Vision from Kuri.

Hiring a photographer or videographer to follow you around all day may not be the most practical (or more saliently, cost-effective) way of documenting your life and capturing its precious moments, but thanks to technology, we may have the next best thing. We first introduced you to the Kuri robot in January, when it made its CES debut. Now, the little robot has been blessed with quite a few new features — she can see, sing, and dance, too.

With Kuri Vision, you can record eight home videos every day, each five seconds long. Kuri Vision leverages the company’s recently announced facial recognition feature, as well as some smart tech that prompts the bot to start recording based on the people in the room, the time of day, and location.

“Kuri can now explore your house and record those valuable moments from your life at home automatically, and even capture moments you might have missed — from pets’ daytime antics, to the kids playing together while you’re making dinner,” the company explained in a blog post.

You can check out Kuri’s footage in the companion mobile app, and naturally, the more you use Kuri, the better it knows your tastes, and the better it will be at becoming your personal videographer. While you can easily share the videos Kuri captures, rest assured that you and only you have control over when and where Kuri begins recording. You can set certain times or day and locations for the bot to explore, and change these preferences at will.

Not only can Kuri see, but the little bot has a few listening features, too. While she can’t sing in her own voice, the robot can connect to any Bluetooth source, serving as a conduit for music, radio, podcasts, audiobooks, and more. Just say, “Hey Kuri, play music,” and the bot will be only too happy to oblige. Thanks to Kuri’s powerful dual speakers, you can bring crystal clear sound to just about any room. And when you do ask Kuri to play music, she’ll dance for you, too — or with you. Anytime the robot is asked to turn on some tunes, she’ll groove to the music, providing you with the ultimate in entertainment.

Update: Kuri can sing and dance now, too.
