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.
Scientists have created the MOTOMAN-MH24 robot, which has learned from and competed against Isao Machii, a five-time world record holder in the art of iaijyutsu, a combative quick-draw sword technique.
What happens if a robot is damaged in a dangerous area? It has to be able to adapt and now, scientists may have succeeded in creating a robot that does just that.
Imagine if handheld tools knew what needed to be done and could guide an inexperienced user.
The field of prosthetics is moving forward by leaps and bounds and now, researchers have created robotic arms that move by mere thought.
Scientists are continuing their work on the walking robot, named Hector, and have developed a software architecture that could enable Hector to see himself as others see him.
Scientists may have taken a giant leap forward in prosthetics. They've created an artificial hand with muscles made from shape-memory wire.
Robotic hands may not just be for Luke Skywalker anymore. Three Austrian men have become the first in the world to undergo a new technique called "bionic reconstruction," which enables them to use a robotic prosthetic hand controlled by their minds.
