Scientists have created a robot that mimics the same movements as an actual insect. Researchers have created a mechanical insect that can launch itself off of the water's surface.
A hitchhiking robot has begun its epic journey across the United States. Known as hitchBOT, the robot was actually first designed as a kind of sociology experiment to see whether or not a robot could trust humans enough to hitchhike solo across the country.
A robot may have passed a self-awareness test. Scientists have given three Nao robots and updated version of the classic "wise men puzzle" self-awareness test and one of them managed to pass.
Scientists have used a mathematical model to demonstrate that bacteria can control the behavior of an inanimate device like a robot.
A 3D-printed robot could herald a new age of robotics.
It's a battle of titans. America has challenged Japan to a giant robot battle and Japan has accepted.
Why is the seahorse's tail square? Scientists may have the answer. Researchers have looked at the seahorse's tail, which may lead to building better robots and medical devices in the future.
Imagine a robot that can be controlled with only your thoughts. Scientists have created a telepresence robot that can be controlled by a human brain.
This robot is sure to give you nightmares. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have created a cockroach-inspired robot that scurries across the ground and uses its body shape to maneuver through densely cluttered environments.
Imagine a robot that learns like a child. That's exactly what two researchers have created-at least that's the idea. The new robot has to learn everything from scratch, starting from nothing.
Minecraft isn't just a game; it may also be helping robotics. Scientists are using this video game to help develop a new algorithm to allow robots to better plan their actions in complex environments.
