This is from slashdot. The idea that this robot "learned" to fly...really cool. The other article cited is cool too. A robot escaped from its creators and was later recaptured. Proof that some level of AI is currently being acheived.

According to this Reuters article, scientists in Sweden created a robot that essentially 'learned to fly' in just three hours. The robot had no preprogrammed instructions on how to achieve lift, it had to deduce everything through trial and error. Very interesting stuff."
