After a long hiatus it looks like the original Robot Wars series is returning to the BBC. They haven't announced a date yet, but they just finished filming and their website says "2016", so let's hope soon!
I have always been fascinated by all kinds of RC toys. Cars, planes, boats.. I played with them all when I was a kid. It's been a few years since I played with some RC toys but when I came accros this YouTube video of the so called "FPV drones" I was sold immediately. In the video you can see top pilot Charpu flying his QAV250 drone in an unfinished/abandoned building.
I just came across this video of an incredible awesome self balancing, jumping & walking cube and I just had to share it. So, meet Cubli! Cubli is a 15x15x15cm robotic cube that can roll around and balance on its corners using a series of gyroscopes.
