Want to know whom you’ll be groveling in front of in the years to come? Look no further than Robots for iPad, an app put out by the magazine IEEE Spectrum.
The app profiles 126 robots from 19 countries, with detailed specs for each one. You’ll be able to access loads of articles and information, and will have access to full, 360 degree views and animations for 34 of the robots. The robot lineup includes all-stars like Asimo, the Curiosity rover, and the self-driving car from Google, as well as a host of others that might be all-new to you.
The app is designed for robotics veterans and newcomers alike. Those in the know will benefit from in-depth spec information like dimensions, sensors, actuators, and cost, while newcomers will get a crash course thanks to those 360 degree views and a full glossary of robotics terms, along with a timeline about the history of robotics.
The robots’ creators aren’t left out, either. The masterminds discuss their creations in several audio interviews.
Robots for iPad is available now on the iTunes App Store for $4.99, and is optimized for Retina.
