System of Remote Destructability - Survival Resource Labratories
Mark Pauline founded SRL in 1978 as an organization whose goal was to "redirect the techniques, tools, and tenets of industry, science, and the military away from their typical manifestations in practicality, product or warfare."  Performance, spectacle, and danger--SRL  has been there from the beginning. The first lethal Internet robot.

     




Interactive Model Railroad
In the University of Ulm's Interactive Model Railroad the user controls a model train set.  A second camera has been added to provide a closer view. Users choose a train and may change tracks.   It is a slow site, but one of the more interesting ones on the web.   The site contains a pictorial archive of train crashes. I've  had trouble loading  the new camera view, and the page of crashes could not complete itself.  


 
 

Rhino
Rhino, the mobile robot tourguide, is a joint project between the Institut fur Informatik III of the Reinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitat Bonn, and the Carnegie Melon University.    The Deutsche Museum Bonn (German Museum of Bonn) is Germany's first contemporary technology museum.  Rhino conducts tours over the internet, and the user may direct the focus of their guide's efforts.  The hours of this site are tricky, but a time schedule is available
