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.

Romo Robot: Smartphone Robot

The Romo is a programmable telepresence robot. The unit itself doesn’t actually contain any sort of electronic brain but instead uses an iPhone or iPod touch as both a visual indicator, a physical interface, and the brains behind its robotic antics.What you actually get when you purchase a Romo is a tank-like battery-powered base that your iPhone or iPod Touch clips into.

Jibo Robot: Family Robot

Jibo learns by listening and asking questions. Jibo uses machine learning, speech and facial recognition, and natural language processing to learn from its interactions with people. It can discern what you might like for dinner or even tutor your kids. But don’t expect him to become a friend or confidant.

T8 Robot: Tarantula Robot

Aesthetically and behaviorally realistic, the T8 is the only robot in the market that combines so much resemblance to a real spider with fine movements, programmability, and customizability. With 26 servo motors packed inside the robot and powered by the proprietary Bigfoo Robotics Engine, which contains advanced robotics algorithms for controlling multi-legged walking robots, there are endless possibilities for the types of bio-inspired, realistic movements that the robot can make.

Dirk Robot: The Homeless Robot

Dirk ambles along with his cart, begging for money and, upon receiving some, playing some music. Though he is robotic his motion is incredibly lifelike. The nodding head and even the begging hand come off as very natural and most people take a few moments to even realize that this is, in fact, a robot and not a person. This is especially true when he isn’t in the context of a Maker Faire.

Leka Robot: An Exceptional Toy

One of the biggest and most biting criticism of modern tech is the industry’s excessive push to solve trivial problems. Nowhere is this theme more apparent than among the sea of forgettable gadgets at CES, itself a trade show that revels in the opulence of Las Vegas and the often hollow promise of our techno-enabled future.

NAO Robot: Humanoid Robot

It's an autonomous, programmable humanoid robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French robotics company headquartered in Paris. The robot's development began with the launch of Project Nao in 2004. On 15 August 2007, Nao replaced Sony's robot dog Aibo as the robot used in the RoboCup Standard Platform League (SPL), an international robot soccer competition.

Velociraptor Robot: Fast Running Robot

A group of researchers at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology's (KAIST) MSC Lab have developed a velociraptor-like bipedal robot that is able to run at top speeds of 46 km/h (28.5 mph), which would outpace world record holder Usain Bolt, who maxes out at 44.7 km/h (27.4 mph).
