Hadrian Robot: A Giant Bricklaying Robot

the Hadrian is an “end-to-end” bricklaying robot that automates the very labor intensive process of laying down bricks. The Hadrian is being pitched as a game-changer capable of completing the brickwork on a house in just a few days at a lower cost and a higher quality level than manual bricklaying methods. After achieving impressive results with the Hadrian 105, the company is preparing to build the next generation robot prototype, the Hadrian X, reports Business Insider.

Asimo Robot: Humanoid Robot

It's a humanoid robot created by Honda in 2000. Honda began developing humanoid robots in the 1980s, including several prototypes that preceded ASIMO. It was the company's goal to create a walking robot. ASIMO has the ability to recognize moving objects, postures, gestures, its surrounding environment, sounds and faces, which enables it to interact with humans.

Olly Robot: The Smart Home Robot

When it comes to what the robot can actually do, it is similar to Amazon's Echo or Google Home. It can respond to your questions by looking up information for you, and can control all of your smart devices and internet-connected products you may have around your home. Where it differs from its rivals is in its ability to be proactive. It could predict whether you might want to listen to music when you get home from work for example, as well as what you might like that music to be.

Caterpillar Robot: Flexible Robot

Researchers at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, using the liquid crystal elastomer technology, originally developed in the LENS Institute in Florence, demonstrated a bioinspired micro-robot capable of mimicking caterpillar gaits in natural scale. The 15-millimeter long soft robot harvests energy from green light and is controlled by spatially modulated laser beam. Apart from travelling on flat surfaces, it can also climb slopes, squeeze through narrow slits and transport loads.

SAW Robot: Single-Actuator Wave Robot

Roboticist David Zarrouk’s and his team’s SAW (or “Single-Actuator Wave“) robot is both completely awesome, and serious nightmare fuel. This innovative robot can move on land or in water by wriggling its 3D-printed spine, and uses just a single motor to shimmy about.

Rolling Bot Robot: Star Wars-style Robot

With LG Rolling Bot, you get a WiFi-connected ball that is slightly larger than a softball that can be remotely controlled from anywhere. The Rolling Bot connects to your home WiFi, so even when away, you can monitor your house by rolling the Bot around (controlled via app). All of the monitoring happens through an embedded 8MP camera that is capable of capturing both images and video. It has microphones on board too, so you can have conversations with your pets. Speaking of pets, the Rolling Bot has a pet mode for teasing your animals.

Spark Robot: Rolling Robot

Sphero released the first edition of its Spark robot, a rolling ball you can control with a mobile app. Since then, the product has been adopted as a tool for teaching kids about robotics and computer programming in over 1,000 schools across the US and Canada. Today it's announcing the second edition, the Sphero Spark+, which has a tougher, scratch-resistant skin. It also has a more advanced version of Bluetooth, meant to make it easier to pair the bots with multiple devices in a classroom setting.

Miimo Robot: Lawnmower Robot

A robot can already vacuum your floor, so it follows naturally that one ought to be able to mow your lawn, too. And now, Honda is helping you do just that. Meet Miimo, a robotic mower that promises to be “convenient, intelligent, and automated” to provide you with the “ultimate in lawn mowing.”

Ozobot Robot: Smart Robot

It's a little toy robot that blends the physical and digital worlds — and teaches kids programming. The company bills the Ozobot as the world’s tiniest robot, but we figure there’s got to be something smaller than these little guys with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for brains.

Autosub6000 Robot: A Deep Diving Long Range AUV

It's an unmanned, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) - or in other words, a robot submarine. It is not attached to the ship, nor is it remotely controlled in any way. Instead, Autosub6000 is pre-programmed with instructions for its missions, which it then completes on its own in the dark depths, leaving the ship free to carry out other scientific tasks.
