Little Robot Sees Himself for the First Time
Technology is an exciting thing. Advancements are being made daily to bring about that futuristic world that many of us are looking forward to. However, these advancements will probably come in the form of intelligent AI rather than flying cars.

QBO, from Thecorpora Robotic Corporation, is an open source project which seeks to advance the field of AI. These little robots are pretty advanced. You can read up more on the blog which is fascinating.
QBO seems to be able to learn images and match them. While this technology has been around for a few years, it is great to see it being implemented like this.
The future looks bright.

Jumbo Combattler V from Rotobox
Rotobox continue their stunning customization work with this tribute to Combattler Godaikin toy. True to the original, this Qee version combines five pieces to form the full robot. It’s a one-off and has already been sold, but you can still drool at all the photos here.
Albotip: The “V” in “Combattler V” is pronounced like the letter (as opposed to “five”) and stands for “Victory.”

An Obsessed Mech: “Mechanical Creep” Short Film
There is no surprise that I have a love for Mech-inspired media. I love Gundam, I can’t wait for Eva 3.0 and Pacific Rim, and I’m even planning a short film involving a robot.
Darren Wallace manages to achieve a sweet tone while still creating a compelling and believable mech design. The project also involved the skilled artists  Matt Parsons and Rebecca Knight.

I absolutely love this short. It is a beautiful piece that remains engaging and leaves you with a smile. The piece was created using Autodesk Maya, Zbrush, Nuke, Vray, and After Effects.

8 Inch Mecha Dunny from Kozik
One of my favorite 3-inch Dunnys is Frank Kozik’s Mecha Dunny. He just released this aweome 8-inch version which includes an art print. Too bad that all 111 of them sold out almost instantly. According to toysrevil.net, they were gone in two minutes, thirteen seconds.

Obscenely Awesome Mazinger Z Chogokin Figure
OMFG. Look at this thing. It’s like the giant robot equivalent of Kaws’ Dissected Companion. The super accurate recreation from the original Mazinger series comes with a bunch of LEDs and full size docking bay. It’s almost a foot tall. For the $440 price tag, I was hoping for something more like three feet. It’s still awesome and I still want one though.

Can These Robot Sneaker Sculptures Kick It? Yes They Can.

Transshoesformers is an art project by James Visaya where he turns old sneakers into Transformer-style robots. The bots above were made using a Nike Air Flight Huarache OG and an OG Asics Gel-Lyte III. Hopefully they were never worn and don’t have feet stank.
