Nebula-Spot Boston Dynamics Robot NASA Space
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is sending a robot into space, and it may be one you’re already familiar with. This four-legged explorer prototype, called NeBula-SPOT, combines autonomous technologies provided by JPL with a doglike likes. Boston Dynamics developed this subterranean Spot robot in response to a contest sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Automatic Robotic Pool Cue
Inventor Shane Wighton likes to think outside the box, whether if he’s playing basketball, or just some pool. Since he’s not a professional at either, robotic intervention is required to master some things. His latest project involved building a robotic pool cue that can easily sink trick shots. In a typical game, the eight-ball can not be sunk until all the other ones are in the pockets. This ingenious robotic pool utilizes a projection system and algorithms to precisely direct his shots.
