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.
Say hello to the Raptor: a robot created by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) that runs like a 70-million-year-old dinosaur.
Its developers say that the OutRunner robot can run up to 20 miles per hour and can last for two hours on a single charge. They’ve turned to Kickstarter in order to raise money to fully develop and perfect the six-legged robot for a variety of purposes.
Flying robots aren't a thing of the future; they're something that scientists are already creating. Researchers have taken tips from nature in order to build the next generation of tiny, flying robots.
The humanization of robots is becoming more and more advanced. Researchers from the Learning Algorithms and Systems Laboratory at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland revealed their unique robot yesterday.
