Popular Science and the Daily Planet

WOW!  We just got some really great media coverage this week!

First, Popular Science posted a really nice blog about our work.

And then Daily Planet, from the Canadian Discovery Channel, posted a great video segment about our work, which we spent a day filming with them back in May.  This highlighted some of our first outdoor tests of the UC Berkeley “tensegrikit” bot, which is intended to be a low cost platform for students to use for learning about tensegrity robotics.  Finally, we just had a our work highlighted on a top-level NASA “shareable” web-page.  Lots of attention!  Lets hope all this media coverage results in some new sources of funding for the lab, as we are operating on a thin shoe-string.
