-- -- An experimental architecture and design firm minimal forms has created a robotics -- you have to -- senator and orleans' -- Artificial and a ballistic environment as part of an art installation -- of a glowing trauma like war robots. That change their behavior according to their interactions with visitors. The robots use motion tracking cameras and -- -- to interact with humans through Khamese this sound touch and illumination. They move in the direction of people reacting to their touch can change colors to express emotions like red for anger. From robots have three modes of operation Twitter follow play in any. See guys have a great idea let's let's risked a man's life by having a hamster drive his truck -- -- very dangerous the side road.

Only 1229 Chronicle Books that -- little robot friends are these adorable little. Each robot has unique personality in it's behavior changes according to how you interact with. The robots respond to light because -- sound as. The response to touch. And they can be programmed to react to each other -- The robots come with tiny stickers called flared to add personality as well as -- developer's kit for kids of all ages who -- to get into basic programming and robotics. And that's not all folks they're from Canada. Check out the little robot friends -- kick starter dot com. I want you and I think -- boom. -- Strap a camera to you that you feel around and a city. A research team from Australia has built a hand held three -- laser scanner. And successfully 380 scanned and map the interior of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Pisa Italy. The research team at Cicero use to to Betty scanner which sways back and forth and whispering as its user walks through a structured if you map. This generalized in that scene from -- is finished getting the tunnels that user reliable flying paying some cool. -- -- -- uses an infrared light or laser to measure the distance of various surfaces in the area being scanned. The spring changes the users walk -- to a sweeping motion for the scanner it contains an inertial sensor to measure its retention. After scanned the range and inertia measurements are converted into 3-D map now we can only get cooled to three came up the world that would -- I think you very much for watching as always you -- all these -- stories is cnet's crave blog crave dot cnet.com and check out this week's crave giveaway. This week's -- is giving away the high five man each 400 headphones that have exceptional sound quality at a reasonable price go to the blog enter to win. -- What's different.
