Our own megatrina has sent us an email with a link to a very interesting article. In the July 29th edition of The New York Times Magazine, there is an article titled "The Real Transformers." Though the in all honesty the article does not talk much about Transformers, but rather the development of robotics today and researchers' attempts to create "sociable robots." We thought is was an interesting read and we wanted to share it with everyone. To read the article yourself click here.
