Video: World War

Video: World War

Mad props to Vincent Chai: World War is a robot short film and the degree project for this University of Hertfordshire student. It was done in 8 months using Photoshop and Maya.

Moody Slobot

Moody Slobot

We’re big fans of M. Heislers custom Slobots, so we’re really digging this heavily modified Moody Slobot; he’s made for shark hunting, hence the fins and oxygen tube.

Book: Mechanika

Book: Mechanika

Doug Chiang is an accomplished artist who has worked on Star Wars, Terminator 2, and even The Mask. His latest book, Mechanika, is a must-read for sci-fi artists and fans.

Climbatron

Climbatron

We have to admit the Climbatron is utterly pointless (and likely annoying), but it is pretty cool. Using suction cups, it climbs on vertical surfaces–great for driving friends up the wall.

Talking Dalek Alarm Clock

Talking Dalek Alarm Clock

First there was the Voice Changer Helmet, and now there’s the Talking Dalek Alarm Clock. Nothing like flashing LED lights and “Exterminate” to get your butt out of bed.

Armored Core: For Answer

Armored Core: For Answer

Armored Core: For Answer is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on 9/16. The mecha combat simulator will feature larger maps, more detailed damage and multiplayer co-op.

Super Ultra Julius Shirt

Super Ultra Julius Shirt

While we’re not huge fans of Paul Frank’s Julius the Monkey, this shirt’s fusion with another pop-culture icon, Ultra Man, is simply too much for us to resist. The Kaiju-style lettering rocks, too.

Forest Fire Robot

Forest Fire Robot

Only you and your 15 ton buzz saw-wielding robot can prevent forest fires: this awesome concept by designer Jordan Guelde plays directly into countless mecha fanboy dreams.

Juke Bot

Juke Bot

Brian McCarty has just released his Juke Bot, a “throwback” to the analog era. We really like the iPod-esque track wheel which has been swapped with an LP; only 500 will be made.

Now Available: Femisapien

Now Available: Femisapien

WowWee’s long-awaited Femisapien is now available with 20 routines and 36 functions. Heavily geared towards interaction, the robot can act as a backup dancer and blow kisses.

Ms. Pac-Man Poster

Ms. Pac-Man Poster

Inspired by retro memorabilia of the 80s, Jonathan Ball crafted this super cool Ms. Pac-Man poster with Blender. It’s the same open-source package used for Big Buck Bunny.

Combat-R Zero Robots

Combat-R Zero Robots

Amazing colorways, Kaiju styling and a limited edition, glow in the dark Plutonium edition mean we’ll be emptying our wallets for Atomic Mushroom’s Combat-R Zero vinyls very soon.

Concept: Little Robots

Concept: Little Robots

Designed by Alessandro Beda and Mathias Koehler, “Little Robots” are described as “geek toys” and contain floating organs; they look about 3.5″-4″ tall. Super cool, but just concepts for now.

Pentagon Spokesdrone

Pentagon Spokesdrone

Fresh from The Onion: the Pentagon has replaced its PR department with the Spokesdrone, after apparently realizing that all their responses were canned anyway.

MechRC Robot

MechRC Robot

Three years in the making, the MechRC is a programmable robot with 17 independently controlled servos: in short, it can dance the funky chicken without breaking a sweat.

Rovio Wi-Fi Robot

Rovio Wi-Fi Robot

The Rovio Wi-Fi Robot streams audio and video with its built-in camera, allowing you to control this via the Internet. Oh yeah: it’s got three omni-directional wheels and micro-GPS.

Unioreja by Tolky Monky

Unioreja by Tolky Monky

If Unioreja walked into our office with a resume, we’d hire him on the spot: one-eared rabbit. Controls a gigantic tentacled robot. Thirsts for revenge. Yeah, that’s our kind of bunny.

Eboy Tokyo Pixel Poster

Eboy Tokyo Pixel Poster

We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.

Macross: Ace Frontier

Macross: Ace Frontier

Robotech fans have been aching for a video game deserving of the Macross mantle; this trailer of Macross: Ace Frontier (PSP) has us drooling like an Invid on protoculture.

Typewriter Sculptures

Typewriter Sculptures

Jeremy Mayer makes complex sculptures out of typewriter parts; the human figures in particular are anatomically correct (within reason). No soldering, welding or gluing; it’s all cold assembly.

Steampunk Robots

Steampunk Robots

We’re personally getting tired of the Steampunk genre, but we still love these robot models by The Builder’s Studio. They look metallic, but these retro tech creations are made out of wood.

Video: Toyota Winglets

Video: Toyota Winglets

Toyota is testing personal transport robots a-la Segway at local airports and resorts. They’ll come in three versions with increasing levels of freedom, from “practical” to “hands-free sporty.”

Murasaki Storytelling Robot

Murasaki Storytelling Robot

Robo-Garage’s Murasaki prototype robot is no slouch at storytelling; “she” actually uses an MP3 player. The ‘bot rolls on two wheels and articulates her head and arms with an eight-axis system.

Dalek Voice Changer Helmet

Dalek Voice Changer Helmet

Exterminate a whole new generation of SIL-LY HU-MONS with the Dalek Voice Changer Helmet, available at ThinkGeek. Includes authentic Dr. Who sounds and lights; runs on 3 AA batteries.

weRobot T-Shirt

weRobot T-Shirt

51 robots from film, television, books and toys, all packed onto one tee shirt. It’s almost too much for our giddy 12-year old inner child to handle. Available in charcoal, black or red on Alstyle shirts.
