Takeshi Maeda’s OmniZero. 9 Robot transforms, carries creator, blows minds

The new robot, OmniZero.9, turns himself into a red car. Created by Takeshi Maeda who later jumped into the car and drove it, showed us how amazing it works. It’s shoulders are wheels and knees that allows it to motor on the ground. It blew everyones mind and especially the competitor.  I think the next step might be a robot that can turn himself into a airplane, but it can actually help around the house. Then you can have a maid and a small jet at the same time that can take you anywhere.

Sept. 9 2009 What is a blog?

September 9, 2009

A blog is like a journal, but in the internet. You describe what happens to you in the day. You can write anything in your blog, it just depends what you want to do with it. You write in your blog daily. Sometimes you can use blogs in work situations and school situations. They help you to keep up with assignments because it is always updated and they help in reminding people what they need to finish or do in a specific day. A blog can help you keep up with what you have to do. Everyday your new blogs will be posted, so you remember what you wrote. It can also help you express yourself and write down things you feel. That is my guess of what a blog is.
