Robot Wars cancelled in UK by BBC

The BBC has again cancelled its Robot Wars TV show.

Details here.

While the idea of making robots fight each other gladiator style is not one we love (we say please and thank you to our Alexa) the cancellation of any show which puts robots front and centre has to be lamented.

Drone development takes an interesting turn

During my flash briefing (thanks Alexa) this week I heard of an interesting new development amongst drone technology.

Details here.

Demonstrating public opinion doesnt’t necessarily reflect the reality of robot development.
