On robots and the internet of things

A collection of interesting links, mainly for my future reference:

- This Crunchgear post on connected medical devices at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2011 earlier this year.

- This post summarizing Matt Webb‘s talk ‘Botworld’ at the Royal Institution which I attended in February.

- This very engaging article in GQ which includes a conversation with a robot.

- The news about President Obama signing the Patriot Act with an autopen, which many news organisations, including ABC News, are calling his ‘robot hand’. (It’s not as crazy as it sounds – there is legal precedent for it).

- This post by Tom Saunter on the potential for branded robots (no conclusion yet).

- I was at this event, but I think Gregory Povey has written this up much better than me (Secret Robot House).

- This post by Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino on ‘future making’.

- This presentation, also by Alex on the internet of things.
