Researchers have created a new class of robots that can shift between solid and liquid forms on demand. In a series of tests, these new bots could move and change shape to run obstacle courses, carry objects, or even escape from a jail.
The Miniaturized In-vivo Robotic Assistant (MIRA) is getting ready to fly to the ISS and evaluate if robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) will work in space.
The circuit components can seamlessly switch between acting as resistors, memory capacitors, artificial neurons, and artificial synapses. A silicon brain that can rewire itself just like ours might not be so far away.
Engineered Arts, a robot maker based in the U.K., is showing off its latest creation at this year's CES 2022. Called Ameca, the robot is able to display what appears to be the most human-like facial expressions by a robot to date.
CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Here are the this year's highlights including robots and wearable devices.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in US announced that it's launching a college which is specifically focused on the "ethical evolution" of AI that is already affecting and shaping our society.
For some children with autism, interacting with others can be an uncomfortable experience. QTrobot can increase these children’s willingness to interact with humans, and decrease discomfort during therapy sessions.
Weighing 30 kg and with a top speed of 12 km per hour on their six wheels, the robots have four cameras constantly scanning the world around them and a laser tele-detection system allowing them to avoid obstacles.
Researchers have developed a prototype of a robot that can express 'emotions' through changes in its outer surface. The robot's skin covers a grid of texture units whose shapes change based on the robot's feelings.
