    Meet NASA's new humanoid robot Valkyrie

    NASA has a new humanoid robot. Nicknamed Valkyrie, it stands six feet two inches tall and bears a glowing NASA logo in its chest. And just like the humans it (sort of) resembles, it only took nine months to make.

    Designed for the DARPA Robotics Challenge, Valkyrie -- officially named R5 -- is expected to aid disaster relief efforts. It’s a role that could require driving vehicles, cleaning up debris and cut through walls. It will have a chance to show off its skills during the DARPA Robotics Challenge, held Dec. 20-21 in Homestead, Fla.

    Just recently read that Google bought Boston Dynamics, and has also been buying up other robot focused firms in the last year or so.

    I suspect robotics is about to hit a growth spurt.

    Movie 43 got terrible reviews, but their sketch about the iBabe was hysterical and probably accurate.
