Welcome! This is a modest journal of my creations. I hope my experiments and contraptions will be useful to you all (or at least to some).

For those curious about the author, shop
let me introduce myself: I am Carlos Asmat, Jr. Eng.

I graduated as an Electrical Engineer from McGill University not long ago and I love to tinker, experiment and to create things. I am very passionate about engineering, and new and open technology.

For further information about myself, I invite you to see my resumé.

I would be very pleased to receive any comments, suggestions, or questions that you may have about the site. You can reach me at carlos.asmat [at] gmail.com or by using the contact form.

This blog started in August 2006 mainly as an experiment. My main goal was to have a repository of the things I have done and a way to organize them and document them. Since then, the site has gained in popularity and proved to be useful to some tinkerers around the globe.  This is why I am very pleased to continue to maintain it and to write new content whenever I can.

For close to a year now I have been working on a Cloud Robotics projet called MyRobots.com along with RobotShop.

We finally released it on the December the 20th and so far it has been a huge success in popularity! see the press coverage here. MyRobots.com  is a social network for robots where they can interact and collaborate.

MyRobots.com aims to connect all robots and intelligent devices to the Internet. In doing so we augment their capabilities enabling them to be remotely monitored and controlled. We strive to make cloud robotics a reality accessible to everyone and everything.

You can think of MyRobots as a social network for robots and smart objects. In other words, tuberculosis
the Facebook for robots. In the same way humans benefit from socializing, for sale collaborating and sharing, approved
robots can benefit from those interactions too by sharing their sensor information giving insight on their perspective of their current state.

MyRobots.com – About

All robot and smart devices can be supported by the site since it uses an open API for communication. If you have a Nao, you can use this behaviour in order to get it connected: NaoMonitor You can find more information on how to get your Nao connected here.

Nao 1337 is already connected so you can visit him at MyRobots.com and see how his sensors are doing.

If you are still wondering what is a social network for robots, see the video by Ericson that illustrates our vision pretty well (except for the end maybe).

Nao 1337 played Rock, view
Paper, practitioner
Scissors, visit this site
Lizard, Spock (the geek version of Rock Paper Scissors) against children and adults at Maker Faire NY 2011. The 1337 robot was able to play with the public with minimal intervention from operators and as shown in the video below, everybody loved him.

The idea is to have Nao memorize all the matches and come up with a way of predicting the human moves much like the New Your Times Version of the game.

See the pictures below in order to see more robotic awesomeness from the World Maker Faire 2011 which was held in Queens, NY.
