This video is a submission to Microsoft's Robotics@Home Competition. Arthur Wait developed a robotic video tripod which I call the "SmartTripod". It runs on a Parallax Eddie robot and Microsoft's Robotics Developer Studio (RDS). There is another video on my channel which is kind of an "appendix" to this one--it contains a cooking video I created to demonstrate the capabiliites of the SmartTripod.
A robot cook has appeared at a restaurant in East China's Zibo City of Shandong Province and is assisting its staff with daily noodle slicing. The owner of the noodle restaurant, bought the robot for 10,000 yuan, to help with cooking. He said that it saves labor costs. Normally it would cost 2,500 to 3,000 yuan a month to hire a cook for slicing noodles, but the robot only consumes eight kilowatt-hours of electricity.
Neil Harbisson, a sonochromatic cyborg artist, at a TED gathering last week in Edinburgh, Scotland. Artist Neil Harbisson was born completely color blind, but these days a device attached to his head turns color into audible frequencies. Instead of seeing a world in grayscale, Harbisson can hear a symphony of color -- and yes, even listen to faces and paintings. Neil Harbisson's "eyeborg" allows him to hear colors, even those beyond the range of sight.
