HomeMate is a fascinating attempt to develop a home assistant/companion robot by Intelligent System Research Institute(ISRI) in SungKyumKwan University(SKKU). One of the guiding principles is the so-called «w-Cognitive Robotics for HRI(Human Robot Interaction)». The "w" stands for "will" and indicates the idea that true intelligence and believable and dependable interaction has to originate from a motivated agent.

"Mask-bot" is a new generation of a talking head. Unlike usual flat screens which provide some facial animation using computer graphics, Mask-bot gives a more realistic 3D rendition of a human face. Mask-bot is unique for 3 reasons: (i) a single photograph suffices for morphing it into a flat picture with 3D information, and (ii) a projector projects the morphed 3D image into the rear side of a semi-opaque 3D plastic mask such that the image gets the shape of a human head again, and (iii) the facial animation is controlled by a computer to synthesize lip movements and facial expressions synchronously with speech output. Ready is Mask-bot, a surprisingly human-like, talking head.

Teleonomies walking the Eigenplot

Teleonomies walking the Eigenplot' is (a robotic installation -) an artistic experiment investigating the aesthetics of emergent systems. The installation features an aleatoric composition of sounds and movement that autonomously originate from the application of simple behavioral rules on a number of hovering robots . Once placed on the air table the robots almost feel the absence of gravity and their emergent behavior is reminiscent of the spontaneous evolution of structure and meaning.

HERCULE is an exoskeleton designed for accompanying persons and providing assistance to carry and manipulate heavy loads, developed by the French company RB3D, CEA LIST Interactive Robotics Laboratory and ESME engineering school, under a DGA funding (RAPID). In contrast with BLEEX (also HULC) and SARCOS, it uses highly efficient electric actuators allowing the current prototype to carry a 40 kg load at 4 km/h speed with an electric autonomy of 4 hours. Only the flexion/extension joints of knee and hip are actuated. The controller principle is that actuated joints are providing torques to counteract the load weight. The high back-drivability of the actuators (CEA patents) is a key feature to have machine following the user smoothly. The back of the exoskeleton can transmit the load carried by the arms to the exoskeleton legs.
