Robot arms have been lending a hand on production lines for decades, but handy as they are, that kind of help usually costs an arm and a leg. To get these tools into the hands of smaller businesses, UFactory has now unveiled the xArm, an entry-level robot arm designed to be affordable enough for those who might normally be left empty-handed...

the elastic 'skin' sheets are embedded with a variety of sensors and actuators capable of animating the legs of a stuffed animal or causing a foam tube to flex. The post scientists develop a robotic skin that brings life to inanimate toys appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Wyss Institute's forays into soft robots and robotics have borne more ripe fruit in the shape of a soft robotic arm fit for use on submarines to handle delicate marine life like coral, jellyfish and octopuses. This isn't the Harvard institute's first, but its latest iteration moves with "unprecedented dexterity.".. Continue Reading Soft robotic arm opens the door to doing science under the
a video shows the rubik’s cube being placed onto the table before running freely and solving itself. The post this self-solving rubik’s cube is powered by a custom 3D-printed robotic core appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
In the future, tiny robots of all kinds of shapes could be swimming and crawling through your body, delivering drugs or patching up wounds. The next robot to join those ranks is a caterpillar-inspired device, which gets around with ease on hundreds of tiny, pointy legs... Continue Reading Will this creepy robotic caterpillar one day deliver drugs in the human body? Category: Robotics Tag
Researchers from the University of California (UC) San Diego have created robotic gliders that literally fly like an eagle. Using a form of machine intelligence called reinforcement learning, the gliders learned through experience, like birds, how to exploit updrafts of warm air to soar to altitudes of up to 700 m (2,300 ft)...

Danish company Odico is preparing to launch a mini all-in-one robotic construction system that can be sent to building sites inside a shipping container. Read more
the system, called dense object nets (DON), employs technology that enables robots to make clever distinctions between objects.  The post MIT’s robotic arm masters dexterity by teaching itself how to see appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
The consumer tech giant decided to revive an old favorite last year, when it announced the Japan-only release of a new aibo robotic companion. Now a "First Litter Edition" of the cutesy pup will be making its way to US shores as a limited bundle...
