RobAid.com is a web site which covers stories regarding robots, gadgets, technology, bionics, biomimicry and sustainable architecture.
The website was launched at the beginning of April, 2009. We began the realization of it as we saw a need for a tech news website with balanced amount of information suitable both for experts and general audience. That goal is achieved by writing mid-lengthened articles with links to more detailed external resources.
Originally, there were only 4 categories chosen for better coverage of the news. We’re covering the stories about robots which will almost certainly play a major role in the future, gadgets which we find interesting, technology which brings advancement in existing science or even creates new ones, and bionics which is particularly interesting because it shows our efforts to mimic the nature (if nothing else, nature had more time to engineer the world around us). A while later, we added another category in which we publish articles related to technology and sustainability in architecture.
Aside the quality of our content, our website doesn’t load new page each time you want to preview a larger version of an image or image gallery, and each article can be read on it’s own page without unwanted pagination which is employed by many websites. We’re also very committed to website optimization which makes our website accessible even in the less developed parts of the world.
