like the hikvision parking robot, new technologies are actively being developed to prevent our terrible and hugely stressful parking. The post automated chauffeur robot parks your car and returns it when summoned appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Imagine if you were working with a robot that could leave you written messages, or draw diagrams to explain concepts. Such a scenario has come a step closer to reality, as a university student has taught a robot how to copy what we write, and what we draw...

An ever-increasing number of research groups are developing tiny robots, capable of performing targeted drug-delivery inside the body. One of the latest such devices incorporates a flapping whale-flukes-like tail, along with wings that fold up or down as needed...

Combining, among other things, suction cups and shower hoses, robotics researchers have created a flexible-bodied wall-climbing robot said to be inspired by one of nature's congenital suckers: the leech. Said robot, dubbed LEeCH for reasons we shall explore presently, can climb vertical surfaces in any direction and – notably – make the transition from one side of the wall to the other. Th
Birds have been inspiring drones for years, but the hummingbird is particularly agile – its ability to hover and make sharp turns could teach drones a thing or two. Now researchers at Purdue University have managed to do just that, building a hummingbird-inspired drone and teaching it to fly using algorithms trained on the birds' natural flight patterns...

the artists have 'taught' the robot to perform 32 different movements - from 'scratch an itch' to 'ass shake'. The post industrial robot continuously sweeps blood-like fluid in sun yuan + peng yu’s ‘can’t help myself’ appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
As work on self-driving cars continues, Ford is making use of a new self-driving factory robot that can deliver parts quickly and efficiently, modify its routes based on obstacles in its path, and free up about 40 hours of time per day for employees to get on with other tasks...

the autonomous vacuum cleaner even goes into a self-reflection on how its life purpose is for the entertainment of others. The post hacked roomba robot screams in pain when it hits into things appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
On the timeline of the evolution of flight in birds, gliding seems like a logical first step. But new research suggests that some species could have made the jump straight to flapping flight without a gliding phase in the meantime, which could force a rewrite of our understanding of avian evolution...

The robot cleaners we have tidying up our houses in the 21st century continue to get smarter and more efficient – such as the Narwal, which combines both vacuuming and mopping in one device, and can even replenish its own water tanks when it's done... Continue Reading Narwal robot can both mop and vacuum, and replace its own dirty water Category: Around The Home Tags: Kickstarter is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
