Spiking Neural Network Simulator
The coolest toy I’ve seen lately. Webots is a robot simulator that runs using the ODE physics engine. There are lots of real robot models included such as Kheperas and even the iCub. You can also build your own robots to simulate. Robot controllers can be coded in lots of languages and you can even link directly to matlab. How cool is that!! Only costs £215/$342 for the normal version.
Lots of videos on the webots simulator site.
