Boston Dynamics is at it again.  Their latest robot, named Spot is an improvement over its predecessor.  Unlike Wild Cat, Spot is much quieter.  It is fascinating to watch Spot navigate both indoors and out.  The original K9 and R2D2 remote controlled props were never capable of handling such issues with so much ease.  In fact, Spot is able to walk up stairs better than I can.

 

At the heart of our recent "Our Companion the Robot" investigation is the quest for the artificial intelligence.  From HAL 9000 and KITT to Iron Man's JARVIS science fiction is teeming with AIs.  So how soon before you will have your own constant companion?  Sooner than you think.

The creators of CUBIC were inspired by JARVIS to create an AI that unlike Siri, has the ability to integrate with your home giving you voice command over your environment.  Thanks to some cloud computing and an app, Cubic can follow you wherever your adventure takes you.

 Cubic was recently funded by an Indiegogo campaign so expect to see Cubic soon.

The first chapter in the season two finale has begun!  I can honestly say that we have been building to the investigation into bionics from the very beginning.  From reality to fiction and back again, the science and fiction of bionics has touched so many lives, including my own. 

 So put on your red tracksuit and prepare to jump into an investigation that shows how science can make one better than they were before!
