These killer robots are beneficial, but comes with some risks

Technology might provide people with a number of advantages, but there are a few creations that could be more destructive in nature, and the ‘Killer Robots’ are one of them. A killer robot is a fully automated weapon that can be used at the time of war and has the capability of destroying almost anything that comes in its way. This concept does seem helpful and could manage to work well in war conditions; however, the UN has already urged to ban the killer robots from being developed. They are machines and programmed to kill anything that might get in…

Google developing robot surgeons in collaboration with Johnson & Johnson

As the Silicon Valley heavyweight grows bigger online with its search engine and browser, it also forges ahead in fulfilling futuristic ambitions through the mysterious facility Google X. Among many ventures, the facility’s projects in artificial intelligence seem to be diversified. In building high tech machines from room service robot  to self driving car, the company has teamed up with competent counterparts. It comes as no surprise when we hear that Google is developing robot surgeons in collaboration with Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, as the former made an announcement Thursday. These robots are more likely to be assistant surgeons working under the guidance of and controlled…

Kirobo, the robot astronaut sets two world records

The international advertising and public relations company Dentsu Inc. announced yesterday that the robot astronaut Kirobo has set a couple of Guinness World Records. Kirobo was built under the KIBO ROBOT PROJECT, a joint research project carried out by the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology of University of Tokyo, Toyota, JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) and ROBO GARAGE Co., Ltd. After arriving at the ISS (International Space Station) in August 2013, Kirobo spent as many as 18 months there. During its stay in the ISS, the robot held the first ever conversation experiment in space between a human…

 PLEN2 is a 3D printable personal robot

When articulated, it is a little less than 8 inches tall but is capable of carrying small items, such as a cup of coffee, for example. Dubbed as PLEN2, the device is a 3D printable personal robot that can entertain you by dancing or playing games. You can control the humanoid robot via any Android or iOS smartphone or other similar devices. PLEN2 doesn’t stand just for the robot alone; it’s a robot kit consisting of control boards, servomotors and other required accessories as it has been put on Kickstarter. The project has already raised more than $31,000 of its pledged goal…

ATRIAS, the world’s fastest moving robot, is going to DARPA Robotic Challenge

ATRIAS, the world’s fastest moving robot, is going to DARPA Robotic Challenge

Scientists at the Dynamic Robotics Laboratory of Oregon State University (OSU) have built a bipedal robot that realizes the researchers’ theoretical concept of highly efficient agile locomotion. “Assume The Robot Is A Sphere” or “ATRIAS“, as it is called, is the world’s fastest moving robot and it is going to participate at the DARPA Robotic Challenge to be held on June 5 and 6 this year. ATRIAS is modeled after a bird and it is the closest possible machine to a simple spring-mass system. Its four bar carbon fiber leg mechanism can be compared to a pogo stick. Mounted on a…

 China, the most populous nation on earth, needs robots in factories soon

In the industrial city of Foshan in Guangdong, a southern province of China, a major appliance making company has assigned four robots to assemble remote control devices for all different kinds of home appliances. This is just a scenario at a factory floor of a particular industry; the bigger picture is, China, the most populous nation on earth, needs robots in factories soon. Over the past five years, factories all over the Chinese mainland have boost up procurement of robots for assembly lines and for various other automation activities. This might have happened in anticipation of rise in labor costs and shortage of…

These “Wrong Trousers” are smart trousers developed by UK robotics experts

These “Wrong Trousers” are smart trousers developed by UK robotics experts

Nick Park’s sensational 1993 animated comedy ‘The Wrong Trousers’ featuring Wallace and Gromit had the absent minded inventor struggle with a pair of “wrong (techno)” trousers. A £2 million project pours out a real life version of such trousers, but these “wrong trousers” are smart trousers developed by UK robotics experts. Jonathan Rossiter, leader of the research team of Bristol University’s Department of Engineering Mathematics, reveals that these smart trousers are built with soft robotics technologies to address some health care needs. Devices used by people with mobility problems can give rise to conditions like skin damage, poor blood circulation…

Robear has all the strength with a gentle touch

 Robear has all the strength with a gentle touch

Japan’s Riken scientific research institute, in collaboration with Sumitomo Riko Co, has developed a new robot that is meant for performing nursing and caregiving tasks. Dubbed as “Robear”, the robot has all the strength needed for taking care of patients with a gentle touch. It can easily transfer a person weighing 176 lb (80 kg) from a wheelchair to a floor level bed. Robear has a cub-like friendly face and he handles sick people with extreme care. There is no chance that he will drop or hurt a person he is carrying; the robot is equipped with sensors that enables…

Here is a robot that thinks like a worm

Here is a robot that thinks like a worm

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made remarkable advancement, but scientists are still far away from creating a robot with the full capacity of a human brain. The world has’t yet got a robot that thinks like a man, but here is a robot that thinks like a worm. Scientists and computer programmers of “Open Worm Project” have uploaded the mind of common worm c elegans and created a virtual digital worm. The new software has been successful in controlling a lego-built robot independently. The robot can move around, react to obstacles and respond to possible food sources. The three wheeler robot…
