David Hanson envisions a future in which robots powered by artificial intelligence evolve to become "super-intelligent genius machines" that might help solve some of mankind’s most challenging problems.

If only it were as simple as that.

The Texas-born former sculptor at Walt Disney Imagineering and his Hong Kong-based startup Hanson Robotics are combining AI with southern China’s expertise in toy design, electronics and manufacturing to craft humanoid "social robots" with faces designed to be lifelike and appealing enough to win trust from humans who interact with them.Hanson, 49, […]

This Robot Will Build Homes on Mars for Future Humans

Mars Robot Mars is the next frontier, and humans are grooming robots to make sure the next generation are comfortable there. Humans on the red planet will require the services of specialists with an overabundance of knowledge, along with the ability to keep up with pressure.

Yes, we’re talking about robots, one in particular that goes by the name, Justin. The robot is being developed by the German Aerospace Center, also known as DLR, and one of the main purposes is to build houses on Mars for future settlers . Source: Wikimedia Justin is pretty slick

We understand that for over a decade, engineers have been refining Justin’s physical capabilities. For now, the Justin robots can handle tools, catch objects, […]
