Sharp-shooting, herbicide-squirting machines could cut farmers’ chemical bills.
The practical uses for an extra robotic arm are probably not what you’re thinking
Ready to connect with your inner James Cameron, without getting your feet wet? Already, we’ve seen crowdfunded underwater drones such as the Trident, Gladius and Blueye Pioneer. Now, there’s yet another. YouCan’s BlueWater 1 (BW1) has just hit Indiegogo.
The emerging field of soft robotics is helping to make robots safer, but recreating muscle is no easy task. Now, mechanical engineers from Columbia University have developed a synthetic soft muscle that’s much more simple to make and run than others, and is stronger than the real thing.
We’ve seen remote-controlled cubes, balls and other gadgets that let people “telesocialize” with their pets via the internet. The latest such device, the Anthouse, takes the form of a little tank-like robot.
THE human-like abilities of robots continue to develop at incredible pace with droids now being seen to chase targets and even fire guns. But now scientists have taken the potential for humans.
A new “terrarium for robots” has a simple concept: Robots for everyone.
A fleet of micromotor bots, each measuring half the width of a human hair, have been used to heal stomach ulcers in mice, the first time such bots have been used in experiments in living organisms.
Robots will begin replacing teachers in the classroom within the next ten years as part of a revolution in one-to-one learning, a leading educationalist has predicted.
CSAIL’s “Interactive Robogami” lets you design and 3-D print origami-inspired robots from 2-D designs.
