My RoboPet

I've always been fascinated by robots. And, it's great esteem to own my first robotic pet. May be the robotic toy that right now,i'm talking about is not new but few years old. Because, i saw it then in "Biswa Ghatna"(local nepalese TV Program) about this robotic toy. Back then, it was awesome but still when i bought it today, it's awesome. There were other Robotic toys(robosapiens and so) which were very expensive to own and could be programmed through PC from USB port.

Being dog lover, i chose RoboPet. RoboPet is name for Robotic Dog. The things i liked about it is, it can virtually do all things that a real dog can do except pee and shit. I really had a great fun trying to understand and play around with it. In fact, i didn't have any intention to purchase this thing. It was a sudden buy because, we were searching for gifts for my aunt's daughter whose birthday was today. So, we purchased this thing for her actually, and i thought to buy one for myself too. I've always been fond of electronic gadgets and i really do pay attention how they work. I found, RoboPet has infrared sensor on it's head. It can detect any movements. There is another technology called ED i.e Edge Detection which can detect Edge and if you leave this thing on Table, it won't fall. Because it will back up as soon as it senses there's a fall ahead. It does this by it's infrared image reception of nearby objects. You can control it with Remote Control and if you don't want to use Remote Control, it becomes Autonomous. It's the autonomous state where it uses it's AI(artificial intelligence). During it's autonomous, we can see it doing things on it's mood. If we praise it, it is encouraged to do activities that we praised for more and more and if we don't praise it at all, it becomes silent or may be it takes short sleep. So, this thing acts just like a real dog. I mean, we can command it using the Remote Control and when we don't use any remote control, it plays at it's own. It even follows us if it sees us. And, if I configure it to bark on stranger, as soon as someone goes nearby,it jumps and makes loud noises and starts barking in electronic sound. It's really cool. It can do more than 9 tricks and it's really fun to see all those tricks.

I've recorded video of RoboPet and myself playing. It's inside.


This video shows RoboPet executing one trick.

Prashant Tamang -A Nepalese in Indian Idol 3

CONGRATULATION !!!! PRASHANT FOR BEING INDIAN IDOL Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have. Whatever ... am glad to hear that PRASHANT became an INDIAN IDOL. Update(Sept,12 2007): Prashant Tamang in Boudha Prashant Tamang is becoming sensation day by day as the final decisive day is approaching nearer and nearer. For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like. Besides, the communal attachment for him is growing day by day. It's only we mongolian face supporting him in Nepal. Like in Dharan and other different place of our country,people has put his banners, posters showing support for him. Yesterday, it was no moon day and i was lighting butterlamps in front of BoudhaNath stupa and suddenly i saw, there is huge banner of Prashant Tamang. Tamangs of Boudha has done this admiration for him. Normally, we see portrays

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
