Meet Mantis, The Drivable Hexapod By The Animatronic Guy Behind Star Wars And Harry Potter

This is a drivable spider robot built by special effect bloke Matt Denton. Technically, it is a hexapod, or an insect if you will, because it has six legs and not legs which spiders has.

This Is Hyundai Elevate, It Is A Car With Multi-joint Legs Inspired By A Grasshopper And Yes, It Walks

Talked about crazy concept cars. This concept called Elevate might just be the craziest concept car even in 2020 and perhaps, for many years to come. Elevate was born out of Hyundai’s hub for start-up collaboration, venture capital, and technical and conceptual innovation and development, CRADLE.

Samsung Ballie Is A Rolling Robot That Wants To Be Your Life Companion, But It ain’t No BB-8

We may not have a BB-8 here on Earth, but there’s Samsung Ballie. In many ways, Ballie is similar to BB-8. For starter, it rolls like BB-8 and it is also a life companion to you. But those are where the similarities stop.

MarsCat Robotic Cat Is An Alternative To Sony Aibo For Cat Person

Sony’s Aibo is a brilliant robot dog, but lets get real. Not everyone is a dog person, never mind if it is a real dog or a robotic dog. But thanks to Elephant Robotics, cat person will soon get his or her own pet robotic cat.

Meet Beetl, An Autonomous Robot That Goes Around Your Yard To Scoop Up Dog Poops

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.

There Are Drones And Then There Is This: A ‘Drone’ With Legs

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.

You Don’t Need To Be A Millionaire To Own This Open Source, Desktop-size Robotic Arm

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 […]

Wearable Robotic Tail Aims To Gift Humans What Evolution Failed To Provide Us: Balance

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 […]

Watch IHMC Robots Walking Over Rough Terrain With Automatic Footstep Planning

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 […]
