It's nice to be noticed...

Well, this is interesting... New Scientist, Ars Technica, and various other places seem to have noticed one of our patent filings.  I guess that the combination of robots, 3D printing, and digital object capture hits the right combination of cool buzzword nerves (though somehow they all overlooked BBN Technologies in the rush to make Roomba jokes about our co-inventors at iRobot).

Indeed, it is pretty cool what can be possible when you bring the improving reasonable-cost capabilities in those areas together with the right sort of representations and AI techniques.  In fact, faithful readers, let me give you a better image than any of the filings had in them (damn patent drawing rules!).  Click to see it's full glory:


And that's enough said about that for the moment...
