Shimi, Your Musical Robot Companion, Wants the Next Dance

Posted:

Does your speaker dock pick music for you, create new compositions, follow your movements around the room and dance with you? No? Then it’s time to Shimi. More than just a speaker doc, the new Shimi – named after the dance move, the “Shimmy” and developed by a team of roboticists from Georgia Tech, IDC Herzliya and the MIT Media Lab – is an i... continue reading

Wax-Filled Nanotech Yarn Behaves Like Super-Strong Muscle

Posted:

New artificial muscles made from nanotech yarns and infused with paraffin wax can lift more than 100,000 times their own weight and generate 85 times more mechanical power than the same size natural muscle, according to scientists at The University of Texas at Dallas and their international team from Australia, China, South Korea, Canada and Bra... continue reading

HyTAQ: A Hybrid Terrestrial and Aerial Quadrotor

Posted:

The Illinois Institute of Technology’s Robotics Lab is working on an interesting variation of the popular quadrotor flying robot. They’ve added a rolling cage that allows the robot to roll along the ground as well as fly. Why would you want to do that? Because rolling requires a lot less power than flying. From the researchers: Experimental r... continue reading

Paleontologists Building Robot Dinos with 3D Printed Bones

Posted:

Robots and dinosaurs have not, historically, had the greatest of relationships, but that doesn’t mean we don’t all secretly (or not so secretly) want our own robot dinos to cuddle, ride around on, and provide security. Paleontologists have decided that they’re going to try to build themselves anatomically correct and fully functional robot din... continue reading

Climbing Robot Tank Can Corner Like a Gecko

Posted:

This is not the first sticky-treaded robotank, but it’s the first one that can manage to go around corners and make that tricky transition from horizontal to vertical. The somewhat unfortunately named “Tailless Timing Belt Climbing Platform” (or TBCP-11) comes from Simon Frasier University way up there in Canada. It weighs 240 grams, and has n... continue reading
