Micro-Robots Propelled by Air Bubbles and Ultrasound

A team of engineers created cell-size robots that can be powered and steered by ultrasound waves. Despite their tiny size, these micro-robotic swimmers - whose movements were inspired by bacteria and sperm - could one day be a formidable new tool for targeted drug delivery.

Bacteria May Hold Key for Energy Storage, Biofuels

Bioengineers are trying to solve a big problem: How to build a low-cost, environmentally friendly and large-scale system for storing and retrieving energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar. Currently, there are no sustainable methods for storing green energy, as batteries are environmentally toxic.

Dragonfly Mission to Titan Announces Big Science Goals

Among our solar system's many moons, Saturn's Titan stands out - it's the only moon with a substantial atmosphere and liquid on the surface. It even has a weather system like Earth's, though it rains methane instead of water. Might it also host some kind of life?

Recycling Next-Generation Solar Panels Fosters Green Planet

Tossing worn-out solar panels into landfills may soon become electronics waste history. Designing a recycling strategy for a new, forthcoming generation of photovoltaic solar cells - made from metal halide perovskites, a family of crystalline materials with structures like the natural mineral calcium titanate - will add a stronger dose of environmental friendliness to a green industry.

Soft Robots use Camera and Shadows to Sense Human Touch

Soft robots may not be in touch with human feelings, but they are getting better at feeling human touch. Researchers have created a low-cost method for soft, deformable robots to detect a range of physical interactions, from pats to punches to hugs, without relying on touch at all. Instead, a USB camera located inside the robot captures the shadow movements of hand gestures on the robot's skin and classifies them with machine-learning software.

Stretchable Sensor Gives Robots and VR a Human Touch

Researchers have created a fiber-optic sensor that combines low-cost LEDs and dyes, resulting in a stretchable "skin" that detects deformations such as pressure, bending and strain. This sensor could give soft robotic systems - and anyone using augmented reality technology - the ability to feel the same rich, tactile sensations that mammals depend on to navigate the natural world.
