Willow Garage Self-Feeding PR2
Willow Garage's alpha robot PR2 (Personal Robot 2) has some amazing abilities. On display at the beginning of June, he walked through 8 doors and maneuvered around obstacles, including humans, that may have been in his way in less than an hour. But the kick here is that PR2 also plugged himself in for a recharge 9 times and knew enough to not break into a door that was locked. Attaboy!
