OSU Robotics showcases new creation
According to Jonathon Hurst, an associate professor of robotics in the Oregon State University College of Engineering, Cassie is a bipedal robot, meaning she has two legs, that was created to demonstrate and explore locomotion, and could eventually take on a helpful role in society. Ryan Domres, an undergraduate research assistant, took on different roles throughout the process and found his work fascinating. With Atrius, his main task was to keep the robot running and make minor adjustments. When it came time to work on Cassie, Domres had the chance to do more for the machine. “With Cassie, I was designing electronics and improving on everything that was made in Atrius,” Domres said. “The feeling of seeing the robot come together from nothing was an amazing feeling.” The Daily Barometer

10 Cities and 10 Companies Where Tech Talent Is Way Underpaid
Not surprisingly, perhaps, in the nation's big technology hubs where there is a lot of tech talent available, a worker's chances of being lowballed on base salary are the greatest. The Paysa study also noted the 10 cities where total compensation packages (including such things as stock options) for tech workers were most likely to be low. Finally, the study listed companies that are most likely to underpay and those that are most likely to pay tech workers what they are worth. Yahoo!
