It's never a good thing when donated human blood – or even the blood in our bodies – is infected with bacteria. Scientists at the University of California San Diego, however, are developing a means of removing such blood-borne microbes using tiny ultrasound-powered robots...

When it comes to building robots, why start from scratch when nature has already designed better materials and parts than our artificial ones? Japanese researchers have now developed a new way to integrate living muscle tissue onto a robotic skeleton, and make it move in a realistic way that takes some of the strain off...

If robots are ever going to earn their keep, they'll need to learn on the job. Factory supervisors have better things to do than program complex instructions, so what if they could just show robots what to do, the same way they would a new human worker? AI researchers from Nvidia have now demonstrated a system that lets robots do just that, learning how to perform a specific task by watchi
the clips show its humanoid robot breaking a sweat and its four-legged bot taking itself for a walk. The post boston dynamics’ robots are running and walking all by themselves appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A leading expert has predicted there will be more robots than humans on the planet by 2048. Dr Ian Pearson’s research for Westworld reveals that even a modest growth of 20% per year will see humanoids outnumber humans before 2050. However, this could be sooner in the event of rapid market uptake in technology, which would […] The post Robots to outnumber humans by 2048, reckons Westwor
The team has been let go. The robots are back in a dusty old warehouse, and MegaBots Inc's dream of an international giant fighting robot league lies in tatters. All that stands between Eagle Prime and oblivion is 200 grand, a handycam, a laptop and one desperate founder...

Robots have finished 3D printing the structure of a steel pedestrian bridge devised by technology startup MX3D, which is set to span a canal in Amsterdam. Read more
it takes practice to get to carnegie hall, but apparently it takes even more for AI to simulate realistic human movement. The post this sophisticated AI boot camp teaches robots to move (realistically) like a human or T-rex  appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Nikon-owned Mark Roberts Motion Control (aka MRMC) brought its high-speed Bolt and Bolt Junior 'cinebot' camera robots to NAB this year. And in a fit of "just because we can, probably means we should," the company decided to choreograph a little dance number for the two robots on the showroom floor.DPReview decided to skip NAB this year, but friend of the site Jim Goldstein graciously allowed us is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
