popular mechanics

My first article for Popular Mechanics is in the January issue. It's all about this NASA 'bot called the Robonaut. It's kind of like an Argonaut, except that it's not a brave sailor from Greek mythology.

Be sure to buy Popular Mechanics and feast your eyes on the robotic goodness!

attack of your mom!

I had my 4 and 1/2 minutes of fame on ATTACK OF THE SHOW from the G4 network.

Thankfully, the world is now safe for another day.

that's DOCTOR mister wilson to you!

Today I defended my dissertation and earned a Ph.D. in Robotics. Of all the degrees, I think I found the coolest one. So I'm a doctor now, and you know what? It feels good. Real good.

Go ahead and read my sweet-ass 185 page thesis cover to cover, you know you want to.

my WIRED review is strong

My book was reviewed in Wired magazine (bottom of page) this month and... they liked it so much they gave me four and a half blue thingies. For those of you with no math skill -- that's almost half a deuce!

znakomity! robot uprising going to Poland

The ROBOT UPRISING is going to Poland. It is good to know that once the book is translated and put up for sale, eastern europe will have some chance to escape the slightly imaginary robot scourge.

Oddly enough, I was consulted for an article entitled "WHEN ROBOTS ATTACK!" It appears in this month's issue of FHM. Download the FHM article -- it has a rad illustration and of course, very sage advice.

ROBOT UPRISING going to Japan

We sold the Japanese rights to ROBOT UPRISING. This means that the book will be translated into Japanese and put up for sale in Japan. How frickin' neat is that?

<-- japan.
