Meet RoboBees, tiny micro-robots with dragonfly-like wings that beat 120 times a second.
Segway inventor Dean Kamen’s annual contest inspires high-school students to build some spectacular robotic athletes.
What happens when you put 40 tiny robots in a room and let them go nuts?
Are we ready for Cyro, a jellyfish-like robot funded by the U.S. Navy for potential future underwater surveillance?
We’re starting to see some of the DARPA Robotics Challenge’s contenders take shape: Carnegie Mellon just announced that it’s building an ape-like robot, but with tank treads undergirding all four limbs.
And here we have the latest BigDog video, wherein Boston Dynamics has outfitted man’s best friend with the ability to whip cinder blocks around.
As if deploying drones — unmanned aerial vehicles — on the battlefield wasn’t controversial enough, here’s an even more disturbing question: Should we allow weapon-wielding robots that can “think” for themselves to attack people?
Science, you’re kind of crazy — especially when you’re doing stuff like this.
This is definitely from the future: a guy, using the power of his mind, literally, to control a bionic leg and climb a skyscraper in Chicago — all 103 floors.
Picture an eerily human-like tangle of metal, wiring and lights, cables dangling from somewhere above like puppet strings. Imagine it springing to life, lifting a long, lanky leg that bends 180 degrees at the hips.
When you read about robotics and human assistance devices, the inception-to-commercial-reality arrow usually points from military or space-based research back to civilian applications, say in the health industry. Infrared ear …
Mapping the insides of anything in real time is hard. Certainly harder than it looks in movies like The Dark Knight, where, near the end, a bat-suited Christian Bale dashes through a high-rise, taking out small squadrons of …
