The robots finally are

The robots finally are coming. Computers and sensors are cheap, and motors are cheap enough. I.D. Magazine did a nice article about the genuine arrival of robots in pop culture (as opposed to their faux arrival in the 1950s). But I.D. is too lame to back up their magazine with a web site, so here are some other interesting links: an article in the Washington Post, and a nifty kit to turn your Palm Pilot into a robot.
