HAL - Hybrid Assistive limb

Posted:

“Robot Suit HAL” is a cyborg-type robot that can supplement, expand or improve physical capability. When a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneurons, moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence. At this moment, very weak biosignals can be detected on the surface of the skin. “HAL” cat... continue reading

A.E.G.I.S.

Posted:

AEGIS uses a beam of antiprotons from the Antiproton Decelerator to measure the value of Earth’s gravitational acceleration. The primary scientific goal of the Antihydrogen Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy (AEGIS) is the direct measurement of the Earth’s gravitational acceleration, g, on antihydrogen. AEGIS is a collaboratio... continue reading

The Google Glass

Posted:

Back in early 2012, before the world had heard of Google Glass, the tech world was ablaze with rumours that the search giant was beavering away on augmented reality goggles. As the days went by, it was clear that not only was this true, but that Google’s dream of wearable technology was far, far closer to release than anyone would have guessed.... continue reading

Tactile Sensing Technology Builds On Tiny Barometer Chips

Posted:

Researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a very inexpensive tactile sensor for robotic hands that is sensitive enough to turn a brute machine into a dextrous manipulator. Designed by researchers in the Harvard Biorobotics Laboratory at SEAS, the sensor, called TakkTile, is intended to put wha... continue reading

How robots can help children with autism learn and communicate

Posted:

A common enough scene, except the “you” in this case is a humanoid robot programmed by researchers affiliated with the University of Connecticut and Movia Robotics to help children with learning delays like those on the autism spectrum improve their social and communication skills. “Hi, Jack,” the robot chirps in greeting, before he and the s... continue reading
