It’s National Robotics Week — do you know where your robotic minions are? All this week, we’ll be featuring some of our favorite robots, robot technologies, and past robot projects from the magazine and online.

And we’d like to hear from you about your robotic interests. One question we’d like to pose, for starters: If you could create a simple robot, using currently available technologies, to perform one regular, everyday task (a la the Roomba for vacuuming), what would that task be (and tell us a little about the design of the bot that would accomplish it)? We’ll draw from the entries (through Wednesday, midnight PDT) and send one person a copy of our popular Make: Arduino Bot & Gadgets book.
