Roomba and Scooba-starting from 2002, MIT rotation-
IRobot in Massachusetts, USA eventually brought home robots to the hands of the masses, their small and affordable Roomba and Scooba vacuuming and mopping robots-retail for less than a dollar; 200.
Sales of all home robots are growing rapidly. in 2005, it was believed that more than one million home robots were put into use worldwide.

In Ithaca, New York, researchers copying robotIn 2005 Cornell University made the first robot to replicate itself precisely.
The unit is made of small mechanical blocks that can be rotated or connected to each other using magnets.
Three or four blocks stacked together to form a tower can be built by spinning like a crane to build the same tower, pick up the other blocks nearby and pile them together.

The spherical touring robot designed to detect and report intruders is made in Sweden.
It is based on robotic detectors originally designed to explore other planets.
The automatic security guard is driven by a pendulum suspended on the inner shaft of the housing and controlled by the motor.
Moving the pendulum forward causes the robot to roll, but the pendulum can also swing from one side to the other, which allows the robot to turn left and right.

Aibo is Sony\'s robot dog and a companion to the Japanese petAibo robot.
It can walk, sit, sleep, beg, yap and perform many other convincing dogs --like actions.
When Aibo was first released in 1999, it sold out in 20 minutes in Japan-100,000 people owned it by 2002. Brand-
The behavior of the new Aibos is very similar.
But over time, when they interact with people, they develop their own personality.
How they develop depends on the interaction between their environment and their innate abilities.
Aibao owners can also re-program their pets using software and add new behaviors.

Stanley-auto-racing carStanley was developed at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
One dollar;
The DARPA prize was 2 million in October 2005, a tough desert race for driverless cars.
Stanley owns the body of a modified Volkswagen Touareg SUV and uses seven Pentium M computers and a set of devices including GPS and four laser ranging.
Three cameras, one radar and one inertial sensor.
See a video of Stanley working on the Stanford University website (
There are several formats). 7.
Asimo is the world\'s first walking humanoid robot, 130 tall and weighing 54 kilograms. it is the world\'s first walking humanoid robot.
The latest model can run at a speed of 6 kilometers per hour, jogging in circles, at zig-zag.
A prototype released in Tokyo on December 2005 was able to guide guests to meeting rooms, serve coffee on pallets and push a 10-kilogram trolley.
Check the videos of Asimo running and sending a plate of coffee on the Honda website (

NASA\'s Mars probe-lab 4 on wheelsNASAbike-
Scale Laboratoryon-
The wheels last only 90 days on Mars, covering no more than 600.
But these mobile robots have now recorded more than a year on the surface of Mars, covering a total of 12 kilometers of terrain.

The smallest remote control
In September 2005, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, made smaller mobile robots than human hair.
It\'s just a hundred-meter-thick silicon strip.
This can be turned precisely like a remote control car, moving in any direction on the surface of the special plate.
The robot is powered by a grid of electrodes below the surface layer, crawling at about 200 microns per second, and can push dust or other \"dead\" robots.
See a video of a small robot here (
Dartmouth College offers a variety of forms). 10. The fly-
It\'s impossible to eat robots, but not the least. sounding, fly-eating robot.
EcoBot II, designed at the University of West England in Bristol, is part of the effort to make \"release and forget\" robots, these robots can be sent to dangerous or unfriendly areas for remote industrial or military surveillance.
To survive without human help, robots need to be able to generate their own energy.
EcoBot ii can do this by capturing flies and digesting them in special reactors that generate electricity.
The downside is that robots have to attract unlucky flies with stinking bait made from human feces.
