CMU's first ever robot census: 547 (and counting)


Sure, we've seen an incredible amount of cool tech from Carnegie Mellon (usually on our way to a kegger on Beeler St.), but you might wonder exactly how many robots they have on campus. Well, maybe you don't -- but a first year doctoral student named Heather Knight does. A recent transplant from MIT, she's counted 547 robots so far -- but since these guys are all over campus, from the Robotics Institute to the theater and art departments, getting an accurate head count might take a while. But the project most likely won't stop there: upon completion of the university-wide project, Knight would like to see a nationwide census take place. We only hope this happens before it's too late.

Update: The CMU Robot Census form is available here.
