robots in rl and sl, Barbie, sl IEEE

my little robot watch

One of my favorite things in rl :: top 100 ::
number 70 :: robots ::
they should not simulate a human being with real soft skins etc; but they should use their own material to have an essence of a being thats alive in their own rights
I love robots, in real life and in sl...
So, cant wait to visit this place...

IEEE Opens Robotics Lab in Second Life
NWN seems to be on an inadvertant robotics kick this week (as here, and here), and this machinima that just came across my news stream will continue that trend: the geek shogunate at IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, or more colloquially, "eye-triple-ee") has opened a two-sim island in Second Life. To judge by this machinima, it's a cross between a simulated real world corporate campus with workshop spaces that look like Italian villas, and a metaverse center with "information pods" and meetings spaces for enterprise use. The first branch of IEEE to put down roots is the Robotics and Automation Society, who according to IEEE's official Second Life site, will "Provide tutorials on how to create and program robots in Second Life." Though I have a feeling the already active robotics community in SL can teach them just as much. Visit for yourself: direct SLURL to IEEE islands at this link.

Barbie Doll 50th anniversary show in Paris in the month of May, at the Doll Musuem. I would like to see that.

i like the Barbie Dolls, I bought a lot of them, I dont have too many but when I see real people who look like Barbies, with a wanna-be-Barbie spirit... hmmm, I would say, a little frightening. :)

Anyway, when I first came into sl, I felt like I am Barbie or, playing with eBarbie dolls... except, we could do soooo much more things... :)
