I am very much into green energy, keeping an eye on solar and wind technologies.

Any regular reader  of this blog will also know I am keen on robots (still waiting for a commercially available Asimo).

I have discovered there are wind powered “animals” which can move themselves around using the flow of air.

At present they are curiosities (as cinema was about 110 years ago) but as one who¬† jabbers on about convergence (my phone is now my camera, games machine, web browser, etc etc – and may soon replace my laptop) add a computer as the brain of these animals (possibly wind powered to, but with chargeable batteries), able to control the ‘sails’ and chose direction and control whether to move or not, and we suddenly have independent robots not dependent on electricity from the grid.

This should be a really good idea, but I keep thinking about The Matrix and the rebellion of the solar-powered robots/ computers leading the humans to “burn the sky” (according to Morpheus).

What extremes would we have to go to in order to stop wind powered robots?

More about those robots

November 16, 2010

The world is changing and what we have seen in sci-fi movies will become reality soon enough.

How many times have we seen on-screen cars which drive themselves?

Well our friends at Google have been experimenting with one on the roads of California.

I have mentioned robots before and how they are set to change our lives for the better – in ways beyond which cars / phones / PCs and the internet have already.

When my solar-powered car will drive me about and I can read or sleep en route I will be a happy man.

Right Google, what about a teleport?
