A Mobile Robot

A mobile robot is a programmed machine that is equipped for velocity. A spying robot is an illustration of a portable robot equipped for development in a given environment. Portable robots have the capacity to move around in their surroundings and are not settled to one physical area. By contrast,industrial robots are normally pretty much stationary, comprising of a jointed arm and gripper get together, joined to an altered surface. Portable robots are a significant center of ebb and flow look into and very nearly every real college has one or more labs that concentrate on mobile robot research. Portable robots are likewise found in modern, military and security settings. Residential robots are purchaser items, including excitement robots and those that perform certain family unit errands, for example, vacuuming or cultivating.

A robot is a mechanical or virtual artificial agent, usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry. Robots can be autonomous, semi-autonomous or remotely controlled and range from humanoids such as ASIMO and TOPIO to nano robots, 'swarm' robots, and industrial robots. By mimicking a lifelike appearance or automating movements, a robot may convey a sense of intelligence or thought of its own. The branch of technology that deals with robots is called robotics.

Machinery was initially used for repetitive functions, such as lifting water and grinding grain. With technological advances more complex machines were developed, such as those invented by Hero of Alexandria in the 1st century AD, and the automata of Al-Jazari in the 12th century AD. The robots made by such inventors were more for the purpose of entertainment than for performing work.

Chloranthaceae ( /ˌklɔərænˈθeɪʃiː/) is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. The family consists of four genera, totalling several dozen species, of herbaceous or woody plants occurring in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Madagascar, Central & South America, and the West Indies. Members of this family are aromatic and have opposite, evergreen leaves with distinctive serrate margins and interpetiolar stipules (similar to the stipules found in family Rubiaceae). The flowers are inconspicuous, and arranged in inflorescences. Petals are absent in this family, and sometimes so are sepals. The flowers can be either hermaphrodite or of separate sexes. The fruit is drupe-like, consisting of one carpel.

Chloranthaceae have been recognised as a family in most classifications but without clear relatives. Molecular systematic studies have shown that it is not closely related to any other family and is among the early-diverging lineages in the angiosperms. In particular, it is neither a eudicot nor a monocot. Fossils assigned to Chloranthaceae, or closely related, are among the oldest angiosperms known. The APG II system (2003) leaves the family unplaced as to order but Stevens (2001 onwards) accepts the order Chloranthales, containing only this family.

Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot is a 3D computer game by Moonpod and published as shareware. Notably the game design attempts to combine the two discrete genres of computer role-playing game and platform game. The platform adventure part of the game takes place on-board a spaceship called The Eidolon which is destined for a remote colony planet when things start to go wrong. The player takes the part of Asimov, a "lowly service droid", who must attempt to save the humans stored in cryosleep. The RPG element takes place inside a virtual computer world in which the player can hack computer terminals to combat defense computer programs via a turn-based battle system.
