During last week, the Discovery Lab had a demonstration of Baxter, a robot by Rethink Robotics, meant to aid in industrial productions. The machine is a human sized robot, with two robotic arms with adaptable ends for different object sizes and shapes. It is incredibly easy to teach it new movements and has great versatility. Baxter has a ton of sensors for safety reasons that allow him to do things like sensing when a person is touching his arms and allow them to fully move them without resistance. He also has an ingenious interface where he nods or gives the user a confused look depending if he understood the commands or not. The Discovery Lab was considering to obtain one such machine for applications within the Telebot, but the end of that idea is still unclear. When all is placed into account, Baxter is a great improvement in the world of robotics.

    "Real-Life Robocops" - TeleBot Story in FlipSide Magazine

    The Telebot has been called the real RoboCop more times than I can count at this point, and they couldn't be more right. Although our research is far from what the movies present, we have great hopes that the Telebot will bring as many benefits as the idea of a robotic body brings to RoboCop. The ide...
