Ordinarily, when we hear about robots or other devices that are able to independently navigate outdoors, it's a given that they use GPS. French scientists have developed an alternative, however, in the form of a six-legged robot that navigates like an ant...

standing for LEg ON Aerial Robotic DrOne, leonardo is just like every other bipedal robot except it has the ability to fly - or at least try. The post caltech’s leonardo robot is a humanoid with wings appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Robots are vacuuming our floors, entertaining our pets or helping out around the house in a whole host of other ways. But most of the time they aren't particularly customizable – whatever tasks they were built for are usually the be all end all. Now robotics startup Ohbot has unveiled its newest creation Picoh, a blank slate of a robot that can be programmed to do basically whatever you wa
As clever as robots are getting, one of the key things that separates them from humans is self-awareness. Debate rages over what exactly it means for something to be self-aware, whether robots could ever achieve it, and the ethical implications that it might dredge up. Now, researchers from Columbia Engineering have gone and done it, giving a robot arm some form of self-awareness, – at lea
in all, it took the robot just 300 tries to learn the game. The post watch this MIT robot ‘cheat’ at jenga appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
iRobot's Roomba and Braava robotic vacuum cleaners have been cleaning the floors of owners' homes for a number of years, and now the company is moving outdoors. The Terra robot mower is designed to keep a garden's grass in check so you don't have to...

Plants might not seem like the most exciting thing to model robots after, but they could make for high-tech decorations or house plants that look after themselves. Now, a team of Italian researchers has developed a soft robot that moves like plant tendrils, climbing and curling around objects...

Currently, when aircraft need to be inspected for structural damage, people perform the task manually. While this does provide them with employment, it's also time-consuming, costly, and subject to human error. For this reason, a fuselage-climbing robot is being developed to do the job...

Traditionally, robots are either airborne or landlubbers – there's not much crossover. But researchers at Northeastern University have now built a robot that can do both, walking around on two legs before jumping and flying short distances to get over obstacles in its path...
