The field of prosthetics is moving forward by leaps and bounds and now, researchers have created robotic arms that move by mere thought.
A new class of magnets that expand their volume when placed in a magnetic field and generate negligible amounts of wasteful heat during energy harvesting could be the future of new actuators.
Could the rumble of an airplane's engine affect how our in-flight meal tastes? New findings published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance suggests that it could influence the flavor of our food.
An octopus arm may have inspired the creation of a new surgical tool. Scientists have created a robotic arm that can bend stretch and squeeze through cluttered environments.
Scientists may have unraveled some of the mysteries of spider silk, which could help researchers design synthetic resources that mimic its extraordinary properties.
Can you imagine metal that's so light that it floats on water? Scientists have created just that. They've engineered a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water.
If you want to workout and save money doing it, a bike might be right up your alley.
It's a new and significant step forward for artificial intelligence. Scientists have created a simple artificial neural circuit for the very first time. The circuit of about 100 artificial synapses managed to perform a simple version of a typical human task: image classification.
Imagine controlling swarms of robots simply by using your tablet. Scientists have created a new system that allows people to control a fleet of robots with the swipe of a finger.
Scientists may have managed to create an underwater robot that can plan its own missions. In March, a team tested an autonomous mission-planning system during a research cruise off of the western coast of Australia.
New findings published in the latest edition of Frontiers in Veterinary Science argue that robot pets, or robopets and virtual pets alike, could be coming in the not so distant future. But would it also be ethical?
Researchers at the University of Connecticut are examining just how "enhancing" our online photos can change people's perceptions of who we really are. And of course, its impact affects male and female counterparts differently.
