Georgia Tech’s Robotarium is “a shining beacon of robotic awesomeness”

The Robotarium is an open-access lab with swarm robots, or robots in large quantities. Palm-sized robots roll—and plate-sized ones fly in the middle of the room where anyone in the world can remotely run experiments on the lab’s robots, simply by uploading code to the Robotarium’s website.

How a Georgia Tech professor created a robotic drumming arm

A few years ago, Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg heard from local drummer Jason Barnes, who had lost his right arm. Weinberg’s team built a prosthesis that could hold not just one drumstick but two. After Barnes became an overnight sensation as one of the world’s fastest drummers, Weinberg then wondered, “Why not everyone?”

Robot, make it a Negroni: Monsieur mixes cocktails in seconds

Thanks to a team of engineering and finance grads from Georgia Tech, cocktail culture has a new on-demand button. Meet Monsieur, an artificially intelligent robot that can shake up cocktails from scratch in just a few seconds.

Hi, Robot: Meet 5 models from Georgia Tech

Outsiders may envision Georgia Tech as some futuristic mothership where super-intelligent scientists-in-training walk side by side with robots. And they may be right. In recent years, professors and students at the Midtown campus have developed artificial intelligence that can feed you, bathe you, and practically tuck you in.

GATSBII

Meet GATSBII. He’s a sturdy fellow who weighs about 450 pounds and stands at four foot four—unless he needs to reach something and extends to five foot five. He looks just like the classic robot of your imagination: a broad, rolling base that contains two operating computers; arms with clawlike pincers; a laser scanner that hums up and down; and a row of cameras and an Xbox Kinect atop his head. (Yes, we know you shouldn’t use personal pronouns for a robot, but who can resist? Just look at him.)
