Stanford students show off their robots

Snooker-playing robot, robotic artist top list of projects

We're in a robotic mood today (more on that in future posts). Here's a video from Stanford University showcasing a bunch of projects in the Experimental Robotics class. We get to see a snooker-playing robot, a few that can draw and sculpt, and one that can catch a flying robotic helicopter (well, kind of).

The amazing part? These projects are completed in about three weeks. More details here: news.stanford.edu/news/2012/july/intro-robotics-project-071612.html
