Android’s Got Talent! Beats Dancing with the Stars [Video]

Well, it looks like the little green robot gets around. Our best friend here at AC, the Android Mascot has done it again. This time it is in the form of a dancing robot. I must say though, watch the full video as this Android has some mad skillz. Dances in sync with the beat and everything. Not to mention having those moves while in a suit can't be easy. This might remind you guys of the Giorgio Armani Android hitting the Catwalk.

Android Toy Pops up on The Big Bang Theory

The AndroidSphere is all a twitter about the Android Toy that popped up as a prop on a scene of the CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory."  But come on, iPhone pop culture references aside, could Sheldon Cooper be anything BUT an Android Fan?  It's robots after all!

Cellbots app updated: video streaming, voice control, more [Video]

We've covered Cellbots on Android Community before, an open-source way to use your smartphone as a brain for a simple robot, but the project has released a new java app which supports not only custom, Arduino-based Cellbots but iRobot Create, LEGO MINDSTORMS and VEX Pro. Requiring Android 2.2 or above, the new app allows you to either remotely control the robot using the phone as a navigation pad, or alternatively mount the phone directly onto the robot and use it as the 'bot's brain. There's support for spoken commands, streaming video and even using a second Android phone running the app to work as a remote (while the first is in brain mode). It's a free download from the Android Market. [youtube _x_5WDCpvtA] [via MAKE]

Unsurprisingly Android's robot theme leads to plenty of 'bot related mods and projects, and we're particularly keen on Hideyuki Takei and Reo Matsumura's Android-Robo.  Basically a motorized Android model that has flashing eyes, a rotating head and articulated arms - and that can make all manner of R2D2-style bleeps and gurgles - the 'bot can be remotely controlled over Bluetooth via your Android phone.
