3D Printer Builds 500-Square-Foot Home In Under 12 Hours
S-Squared 3D Printers Inc and it's revolutionary Autonomous Robotic Construction System, have built the largest 3D printed home in the world today.
Robotic contact lens controlled by the eyes
A research team has developed a soft robotic lens whose movements are controlled by the eyes—blink twice and the lens zooms in and out; look left, right, up or down and the lens will follow.
Understanding the animal brain could help robots wash your dishes
Artificial intelligence still has a lot to learn from animal brains, researchers are hoping that lessons from neuroscience can help the next generation of artificial intelligence overcome some particularly difficult barriers.
Exosuit shows potential for wearable robots
Researchers have previously developed robotic devices for rehabilitation and other areas of life that can either assist walking or running, but no untethered portable device could efficiently do both.
Researchers study birds to improve how robots land
Even the most advanced robots come nowhere near the grasping ability of animals when dealing with objects of varying shapes, sizes and textures.
A robot that can build its own tools
Thanks to new technology that enables them to create simple tools, robots may be on the verge of their own version of the Stone Age.
Machine learning to help develop self-healing robots that 'feel pain'
Researchers will use self-healing materials and machine learning to develop soft robotics as part of a new collaborative project.
Pointcloud Inc are a stealth mode start-up developing a lidar module.
Robotic jellyfish able to perform 3D jet propulsion and maneuvers
As a source of inspiration, aquatic creatures such as fish, cetaceans, and jellyfish could inspire innovative designs to improve the ways that manmade systems operate in and interact with aquatic environments. Jellyfishes in nature propel themselves through their surroundings by radially expanding and contracting their bell-shaped bodies to push water behind them, which is called jet propulsion.
Pioneer Corporation offer lidar modules.
Owl Autonomous Imaging
Owl Autonomous Imaging (Owl AI) are developing a lidar module.
$7.5 billion 'smart mini-city' to be built in Las Vegas
This $7.5 billion, six year project, will be constructed of net-zero buildings within their own insular mini-city, featuring automated multi-functional designs, renewable energies from solar/wind/water/kinetic, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, supertrees, and self-healing concrete structures.
Chameleon-inspired soft robot can interact with environment
A novel structural color soft robot with both color-changing and locomotion capabilities has been developed by a research team.
Centimeter-long snail robot is powered with light
Researchers used liquid crystal elastomer technology to demonstrate a bio-inspired microrobot capable of mimicking the adhesive locomotion of snails and slugs in natural scale. The 10-millimeter long soft robot harvests energy from a laser beam and can crawl on horizontal surfaces, climb vertical walls and an upside-down glass ceiling.
Soft robots controlled with lights and magnets
Newly published research shows the possibility of controlling soft robots with light and magnetic fields, with the new technique to likely be applied to the biomedical and aerospace fields.
Oryx Vision are developing a lidar module.
IDTechEx spoke to Dr Cory Kidd, CEO of Catalia Health. The company developed Mabu, a 'Wellness coach' robot designed to improve chronic disease care management.
Drone doctor: Measuring whale health from above
When assessing a patient's health, one of the first things a doctor does is measure the patient's vital signs. But how do you measure vital signs when your patient is a huge, endangered paikea humpback whale? New University of Canterbury research suggests drones might be the solution.
