I did want to note that Dezhen Song at Texas A&M was one of the award winners for his work in Human Robot Interaction.  His work with Ken Goldberg at UC Berkeley won them a spot in a very prestigious list.  Take a look at this year's awards for the full story on what the award is about, and the work that all of the winners did.  Everything from a social snack bot to disaster rescue bots, to work towards a robotic wheelchair that can be deployed to the real word!

Bravo to all that participated in the program!
