Remember the Mini Cheetah, the dog-like robot that made back flips? Well, Biomimetic Robotics Lab at MIT did not stop at one unit. It now has at least 9 units which were tested together recently.
We have seen robots that sweep and mop, mow the lawn, clean windows and pools, and if Beetl Robotics have their way, we will be able to add dog poop scooping to the list. Yes. A poop-scooping robot.
When we talk about drone, we have a common understanding that it is an unmanned aircraft. However, a recent development by researchers at Caltech’s Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST) completely changes our perception.
I am not sure why anyone need a robotic arm at home, but here it is anyways, the Mirobot 6-axis Mini Robotic Arm, in case you need one. It looks and performs like any large size industrial robotic arm because, well, it is a industrial robotic arm, but only 10x smaller. Mirobot 6-axis Mini Robotic […]
Why human beings do not have a tail is simply because, we can balanced ourselves perfectly under normal situations. However, very obviously evolution did not expect us to do things out of the norm like carrying heavy boxes or going up stairs, let alone a combination of both. But f*@k evolution because, researchers at Keio […]
I am not going lie. I just can’t wrap my head around the science behind how IHMC made Boston Dynamics’ Atlas and NASA Valkyrie robots navigate over a rough terrain. The development was, btw, a response to DARPA Robotics Challenge that calls for improvements in robotics technology for disaster relief operations. DARPA Robotics Challenge was […]
Once upon a time, Harvard University wowed the world with a micro autonomous flying robot called RoboBee. Then, USC School of Engineering one up it with a 4-winged robotic insect called Bee+ and now, Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory came back at Bee+ with its under-a-gram 4-winged robotic flying insect that can fly tether-free – thanks to […]
These days, anything can be logged as a world record, including basketball free-throwing by an AI basketball robot. Before we get to the story, pro basketball players can rest easy because, Toyota CUE3 AI basketball robot only knows how to aim at the hoop. It is not about to takeover the sport, yet. Though so, […]
It looks like the future of robots is headed towards the ‘organic’ route. In a new research published in Nature by scientists from Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania, it details the development of a soft robotic fish, a lion fish of sort, that is powered by what could only be describe as “artificial […]
If you think the headline sounds absurd, wait till you learn that this artificially-intelligent art-making robot, named Ai-Da, has, as of June 7, made over $1.2 million in sales of art. Believe it. This is not quite a dystopia future now like the teaser video’s overall ambience may have implied, though. It just makes us […]
