This video shows an initial test of the MDS (Mobile Dexterous Social) Robot designed and built in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab's Personal Robots Group, UMASS Amherst's Laboratory for Perceptual Robotics, Xitome Design, and Meka Robotics. It illustrates the robot's expressive range of movement using scripted animations and pre-recorded speech.
Ciardelli (twitter @ECiardelli) uses robot battles to teach students! This would be a great project to teach about math, through programming, while focusing in on the students interests. This can also include digital literacy as student have to program their bots.
