Science fiction writer Isaac Asimov introduced the ‘Three Laws of Robotics’ in his 1942 short story, Runaround. The laws, paraphrased, are as follows. First Law: A robot may not harm a human or, through inaction, allow a human to be harmed. Second Law: A robot must obey the orders of a human except where the orders violate the First Law. Third Law: A robot must protect its own existence as long a
You've seen a ton of videos of humanoid robots – but this one feels different. It's Sanctuary's Phoenix bot, with "the world's best robot hands," working totally autonomously at near-human speeds – much faster than Tesla's or Figure's robots.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Humanoid, Robot, Universal Robots, Artificial Intelligence, Sanctuary AI
the stool assembles like a puzzle and balances on just two legs, seating people back to back to rekindle human interaction. The post MIT students blend woodworking with robotics to consruct two-person stool appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
No single robot can perform all tasks, yet bringing a bunch of different robots along on Moon missions would be quite inefficient. The WORMS setup offers an alternative, in the form of components that can be mixed and matched to make whatever robot is needed.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: MIT, NASA, Modular, Biomimicry, Moon, Lunar
the kinetic machine acts as a pulsating organ pressing against its ribcage. The post inflatable anthropomorphic sculpture uses soft robotics to mimic breathing appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A Colorado-based computer vision company has launched a hackable, open-source roving robot called rae that packs AI processing and machine learning, depth-sensing cameras, app control and fun RGB lighting into a pint-sized package designed "for every age, and every skill level."Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Kickstarter, Robot, NVIDIA 3D Vision, 4k, Artificial Intelligence, P
Imagine if there were a robotic fish that filtered microplastic particles out of the water as it swam. Well, now there is one, and it's the physical version of the winning concept in the first-ever Natural Robotics Contest.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: University of Surrey, Competition, Biomimicry, Microplastic, Pollution, Fish
It often seems that soon after a new type of scientific or industrial robot is unveiled, a hobbyist model follows. First, there were the Bittle and Mini Pupper miniature quadrupeds – now, there's the XR R1 hexapod.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Kickstarter, Hexapod, Remote-Control is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
