In Pictures: The year in madly cool robots

From giants to itsy-bitsy shape shifters, robots are hot

A prototype robot that can detect and disarm Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) moves remotely during a test run at Makerere University's College of Engineering, Design Art and Telecommunication in Kampala June 6, 2012. The robot is remotely controlled by a computer and can navigate a flat surface of up to 20m radius. The development comes in the wake of continuous terrorist threats as a result of the country's contribution of forces to the African Union peace keeping mission in Somalia.
