Robots with personality | The Tech Museum of Innovation - 0 views

  •  
    "For scientists and engineers in the new social robots field, finding out what gives a robot the appearance of emotion or personality is essential. In the case of these little LEGO walking bots, it is mostly a matter of the way they move. The particular motions and speed create a pattern of movement that we interpret as a personality"

UMD Robo Raven | Interesting Engineering - 0 views

  •  
    "new robotic bird, "Robo Raven", whose wings flap completely independently of each other, and also can be programmed to perform any desired motion, enabling the bird to perform aerobatic maneuvers. This is the first time a robotic bird with these capabilities has been built and successfully flown."

UAV Landing on an Air Craft Carrier > ENGINEERING.com - 0 views

  •  
    The Navy's UAV, the X-47B successfully performed a cable assist landing - its first simulated aircraft carrier landing. It takes off, flies and lands within a few feet of its predicted path. In the coming months the Navy will begin testing the X-47B in live carrier landing test.

Robot Fly Mimics Insect Flight, Hovers With Ultrathin Wings (VIDEO) - 0 views

  •  
    " The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly's flapping rate. This "required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques", he adds. The robot's wings are composed of thin polyester films reinforced with carbon fibre ribs and its 'muscles' are made from piezoelectric crystals, which shrink or stretch depending on the voltage applied to them."

Bruno Maisonnier: Dance, tiny robots! | Video on TED.com - 0 views

  •  
    There's a place in France where the robots do a dance. And that place is TEDxConcorde, where Bruno Maisonnier of Aldebaran Robotics choreographs a troupe of tiny humanoid Nao robots through a surprisingly emotive performance. Bruno Maisonnier works at Aldebaran Robotics, maker of the tiny, compelling humanoid Nao.

Video: Harvard's Robotic Tentacle Can Lift a Flower Without Crushing It | Popular Science - 0 views

  •  
    " soft robotic tentacles here before, but researchers from Harvard working with the Department of Energy and DARPA have come up with one that they claim is sensitive and nuanced enough to grip and manipulate a flower without breaking it. Their work is detailed in the latest issue of the journal Advanced Materials. Most robot grippers/manipulators work in a very mechanical fashion. That is, they are generally made of solid materials and controlled by various actuators and joints that allow them to assist in tasks like factory manufacturing."

Watch SynthNet in Action! | ToniWestbrook.com - 0 views

  •  
    "videos demonstrating SynthNet in action have been posted to YouTube! In the first clip, I demonstrate growing a brain from virtual DNA, hooking into my Lego robotic buddy Bit, and then conditioning Bit to associate hearing a tone with getting his touch sensor pressed. The demonstration is a recreation of classic fear conditioning experiments."

ReMY - The Remote Mars Yard by Kazimierz Błaszczak - Kickstarter - 0 views

  •  
    "The Remote Mars Yard (ReMY) - space technology just one click away. ReMY is an education-scoped project originating from Polish student analog Mars rovers - the winners of Mars Society's University Rover Challenge in Utah (Magma rover - 3rd at URC 2010, Magma2 rover - 1st at URC 2011 and Copernicus rover - 6th at URC 2011). The URC Mars analog rovers are full hardware simulators of real Mars rovers, capable of performing various scientific, exploration and engineering tasks in desert environments, such as Utah desert or artificial Mars terrain."

SeaPerch - Teach - 1 views

  •  
    "The SeaPerch program is a great way to get students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). SeaPerch easily aligns to the national science standards and lends itself well to interdisciplinary projects. As we travel the world spreading SeaPerch, educators are creatively integrating this project into their classroom."

See nano quadcopter robots swarm (video) - Yahoo! News - 2 views

  •  
    "In the future, a swarm of flying robots may do the work now done by human search teams. A robotics research team at the University of Pennsylvania has designed a system to coordinate a number of small quadcopters, a step toward coordinating multiple robots for tasks such as surveillance or searching areas after a disaster.

Robots Play Catch, Starring Agile Justin And Rollin' Justin (VIDEO) - 1 views

  •  
    Watch the ball toss in the video below. Obviously Agile Justin throws like a robot, kind of sidearm/underhand, not much like a major league pitcher. The coordination between arm, torso, and wheels gives new meaning to the term "pitching mechanics."
