Achu Wilson is building a personal robot called Chippu. Using Julian, a special version of Julius Speech Recognition Library , he was able to recognize and execute voice commands. He details the process of getting the library working with ROS in his blog post here.
VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the latest VIA COMe-8X90 module, featuring a 1.2GHz VIA NanoTM X2 E-Series dual core processor and the VIA VX900H media system processor (MSP).
The main new features since the latest stable 1.2 release are a new generalized IO functionality and file format for octrees, support for per-voxel color information in a specialized tree class (e.g. from the Kinect) and full support for Linux, Mac OS and Windows (the latter still experimental). The API remained mostly unchanged.

STMicroelectronics Shows Unique Metal Alloys Improving Cameraphone pictures and Other Innovative Solutions for Comprehensive Mobile Experience
During MWC, ST will reveal a new approach to deliver OIS to mobile phones. OIS uses feedback from motion sensors embedded in the mobile device to control the mechanical actuator that compensates for slight movements of the user's hand, resulting in sharper images even in low-light conditions. The new technology uses actuators made of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) that offer the unique ability to contract upon heating.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
