Kids today are pretty spoilt when it comes to how advanced toys are getting. Robots, drones and augmented reality are all the rage, and if you're lucky you can trick them into learning some useful skills along the way. New Atlas rounds up the best tech toys of 2018, which could make for some great last-minute gift ideas for the young'un in your life... Continue Reading Robots, drones and A
Studio Joanna Laajisto has created an office for a Finnish advertising agency inside a bread factory with six-metre-high ceilings, in Helsinki. Read more
That Australia's Great Barrier Reef is in serious trouble is no longer subject to debate, but the best way to deal with the problem very much is. An all-out assault on coral predators, giant fans to combat rising sea temperatures and recycling dead corals are all proposals being put on the table. The latest to emerge involves robots playing the role of "the stork" and distributing coral la
Robots are getting smaller and smaller, from the size of bugs down to tiny bead-shaped robots that could one day swim through the body to monitor health or deliver medication. MIT engineers recently managed to create cell-sized robots that could collect data about their environment, but were a little tricky to manufacture. Now, the team has found a way to mass produce these synthetic cells
it has become an ubiquitous fear that robots will take over the world one day and a simple look at how factories are changing in the twenty-first century makes this a glimpse into the future not hard to imagine.

the visually striking photo series shows a dystopian future where robotics and humans have merged. The post nicolas bigot details the life of robots in photo series ‘the robot next door’ appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Although we've already seen 3D printers that can create full-size concrete structures, the huge size of the devices could make them difficult to install at construction sites. Singaporean scientists are developing an alternative, in the form of mobile robots that work together to do the job...

Japan has scored a space race double first by becoming the first nation to land not one, but two rovers on an asteroid. The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has confirmed that both of the robotic MIcro Nano Experimental Robot Vehicle for Asteroid, second generation (MINERVA-II1) spacecraft, designated Rover-1 and Rover-1, successfully deployed from the unmanned Haybusa2 probe o
The classic image of a robot is rigid and metallic, but if they're ever going to work alongside humans in the real world, they're going to need a softer touch. Harvard researchers have developed a new method for producing small-scale squishy robots, and demonstrated it by creating a flexible robotic peacock spider, driven by a microfluidics system...

Back in 2010, researchers from Cornell University helped develop a robotic gripper that was stuffed with coffee grounds. Now, a Cornell team has done the next logical thing, and built soft-bodied robotic devices that are filled with and activated by popcorn...
