Investigation: Robots

Jacky & Andy, in Grade 4, have started to investigate some interesting stuff about robots.  We have talked about ASIMO, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot (created by Honda’s research and development subsidiary.)  Check out the video below to see some of the cool stuff that ASIMO is capable of:


We have also been looking at CubeletsClick here to have a look at our blog post from earlier this year to see what these modular robots are all about.

If you have a little more time to invest, perhaps you’d like to watch the BBC documentary called How Robots Will Change the World.  It’s about 40 minutes long, but is all about how things that were once unthinkable that are now becoming real!
