  • Four Letter Words robot plays word association, swears quite a bit Four Letter Words robot plays word association, swears quite a bit

    New York-based artist and programmer Rob Seward's 'Four Letter Words' electronic sculpture will spell out nice and/or dirty words at you. A series of small fluorescent tubes move about to form an angular typeface of shifting verbiage, displaying English language words of up to four characters lo...

  • Audi’s Robotic Car Drives Better Than You Do Audi’s Robotic Car Drives Better Than You Do

    The robocar Shelley is a 2010 TTS and can run without a human behind the wheels or inside the car. The team chose it because it features a fly-by-wire throttle, adaptive cruise control, a semiautomatic DSG gearbox and other gadgetry. That made it relatively easy to make the car fully autonomous...

  • Nokia N900 Controls LEGO NXT Robot via Twitter Nokia N900 Controls LEGO NXT Robot via Twitter

    Thinking out of the box, some researchers or more-like called "hackers" just can't get enough of their Nokia N900 cell phones. But this is something that I would also perhaps do with my spare time, tweaking my own cell phone to make it useful for some other controls. Just like this technology...

  • Robovie-IV: For Robot-Human Society Robovie-IV: For Robot-Human Society

    “Through the accumulation of experimental research in our office as well as at a Science Museum, we are beginning to understand the communication features that are necessary for a robot to easily participate in our society. So, in the near future, we will be able to create a robot that can sup...

  • Biomimetics: Climbing Robots Use Whegs Biomimetics: Climbing Robots Use Whegs

    Researchers at the Biologically Inspired Robotics Lab or the Biomimetics Lab, developed the Whegs series. Case Western Reserve University used both wheels and legs to create Whegs robots, mini-Whegs, and climbing mini-Whegs. The robots move freely at a relatively high speed and climb over obstacl...

  • Robotic Fly Takes Off Robotic Fly Takes Off

    There are already many flying robots that exist but this robotic fly is the first at such a small scale. Enthused by a true fly, Prof. Wood and his team from Harvard University developed a 60 milligram robot with a three-centimeter wingspan that is able to achieve the flight performance of a re...

  • Unnamed Humanoid Unnamed Humanoid “UH” from Iowa State Learns To Learn

    Iowa State University’s Developmental Robotics Lab is trying to find it out how the robot works in the same way like a 2 year old does by attempting to break the stuff. They used an unnamed humanoid (“uh”) to do this experiment. The unnamed humanoid maneuvers objects in many different ways ...

  • Robotic Snake - SnakeBots in the Spotlight Robotic Snake – SnakeBots in the Spotlight

    Over the years, several models of robotic snakes have been developed by the researchers at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer. Their recent robotic snakes are called snakebots. Snakebots move like the real thing. Snakebots are intelligent and they move with the help of hydrauli...
