Bits and Bytes — Tuesday, Sept. 18th

  • Tucker Hermans, rockstar junior nBites member studying abroad in Berlin, now has a blog and a flickr account.
  • The NUbots, or at least as we know them, have retired their aibos. From their website: “After a long and successful career our team of AIBO robots is going to retire from active competition. Their last demo game was at the University of Newcastle information day on 8. September 2007. Although the Sony AIBO robot is not built anymore and the RoboCup Four-Legged League is fading out the members and adjoints of the Newcastle Robotics Lab continue research on several exiting robotics related projects such as bi-ped walk, robot simulations, robot vision, human-robot interaction, as well as further development of the robot bear in collaboration with Tribotix.”
  • Mark and Henry have found an apartment in Mountain View, CA, and are planning out their revolutionary products.
  • Because Henry got an iPhone, nBites gets iPod-sized videos of all its matches. Check them out on the Media page.
  • Google Video, High Quality, and iPod-sized versions of the other semi-final game, between the NUbots and WrightEagle, are now available.
  • A well-meaning but very odd blurb showed up about us in the Orient, instead of the front page above the fold story we deserve. How exactly we won a gold ‘metal’ abroad in Atlanta, we’re not sure, but scientists are working on it as we speak.
