Researchers have unveiled a range of different flying robots that could be used to go into areas where it's unsafe for people to venture.
You may have heard of swarming bees, but have you heard of swarming robots? Scientists have created a new type of tiny, autonomous robot that, in large numbers, can replicate the behavior of swarming bees.
MIT researchers have not only successfully created a robotic cheetah, but have given it the ability to bound across a field without being tethered. The new robot could just represent a new method to create speedy robots.
Imagine a robot that can function in snow, walk through flames and even get run over by a car and still work. Do you think it's too impossible to be true? Then think again.
What movements do worms use when it comes to inching through the Earth? That's a question that scientists have now answered with the help of a mathematical model which challenges the tradition view of how these creatures get around.
It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie--a robot that can fold itself up and walk away. But that's exactly what a team of engineers have created.
When you have something as tiny as bacteria and spermatozoa, movement becomes a whole new challenge. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at self-propulsion in a bid to potentially design tiny, nano-scale swimming machines.
Scientists may have made a major leap forward when it comes to robotics. They've created a new material that has the potential to robots similar to the ones featured in the movie, "Terminator 2," which could morph from a hard to a soft state.
Robots need to be given step-by step instructions for tasks they haven't performed before. Now, researchers have found out a way to allow people to give robots instructions in English, teaching them like they would teach a child, rather than having to use code.
Robots may have garnered the reputation of being rather stoic, dry creatures, but rest assured, scientists have concocted a new humanoid that's bringing new emotion to computerized droids.
Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) are working on a new robot inspired by the velociraptor dinosaur that can run up to 28.6 miles per hour; it's yet another robot that can outperform humans in some way.
