A Good Robotic Week

First there was news of an omelette frying Chief Cook Robot, followed by notice of Innoc's robot sail boat Row-Bot winning another contest making it ruling robot sailing world champion.

Today finally there was news on TV about an Austrian with two full prosthetic robot arms showing off his banana pealing and eating skills, the device is cleverly hooked up to his brain and with a little training many manipulations are learnable for the onboard computer, so that the arms can easily be operated by thought. No internet links for now, but we have heard of the institute's neuro-scientific achievements in the past.
