Finally, a cheap spinning LiDAR!
If you are into robotics, please consider backing sweep! It's a low-cost spinning LiDAR sensor, an essential component of robotics applications.
Getting Started with Mac OS X
When I first bought a Macbook, back in 2012, a lab mate helped me get all set up for research and school work. (Thanks Cameron!) So when a few days ago a friend also switched to a Mac (from Windows and Ubuntu), and expressed some frustration at how things work in OS X, I decided to "pay it forward" and help him out.
Back MegaBots in Giant Robot Duel!
MegaBots needs your help to create a giant combat robot from America to defeat the robot from Japan! Check out their Kickstarter campaign asap!

This is the final part of the Hong Kong trilogy! If you've missed any of the previous two parts, click on the pictures below.
The Hong Kong saga continues! As I mentioned in the first story of this series, I've broken down my trip into three parts. (If you missed the first one - the robotics conference - click on the leftmost photo below.)
Today's post is all about Ocean Park, a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park in southern Hong Kong island!
As many of you know (from my incessant Facebook posts and tweets), I traveled to Hong Kong! The purpose of my trip was to present a research paper at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2014), which took place in Hong Kong, from May 31 to June 5.
After the conference, I also spent two days as a tourist! Because I have too many stories (and photos and videos) to talk about, I decided to write three separate blog posts about my Hong Kong trip, as follows:
