RobotWorx, an industrial robot integrator, features a section of robot videos on their website. This movie section is unique as it demonstrates industrial robots by many different manufacturers. See welding, cutting, material handling, and other videos.

RobotWorx also sponsored a NASCAR car and was featured on an episode of the popular television show Modern Marvels.

Please consider adding BEST Robotics to your "Competitions" section. BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) is a middle and high school competition that is free to schools. All equipment and raw materials are provided. It is a six-week long, fall competition. Now in its 16th year, BEST is the second largest robotics competition in the U.S. with (as of fall 2008) 632 schools - over 11,000 students - participating at 32 competition sites ("hubs").
