Helicopter Robots Collaborate To Work Together

Helicopter Robots Collaborate To Work Together 

For the first time, the Laboratory for Autonomous Flying Robots (awesome, I know) at the Berlin Institute of Technology has used three autonomous helicopters to transport a load together, cooperating without any human intervention. It’s a big step forward for collaborative robots, which many experts believe is the wave of the future.

Can Robots Evolve? On Building the “Conscious” Machine…


How would you build a conscious machine? Well to begin with I’d get Life Insurance and then take my brain and put it in a jar and freeze my body. Then hundreds of years later wake me up and transplant me into an IronMan. Yes, I partially got that idea from the movie IronMan and from Futurama. I’m still going to do it though.

Tiny Robotic Hand Has Strong Grip

Robotic Hand

Scientists have developed a pair of robotic hands that are both strong and sensitive

The tweezers can guide themselves to pick up and move individual cells without damaging them, and have a grip that can be as slight as 20 nanoNewtons of force. In fact, so advanced are the little grippers, that they can be hitched up to a microscope and, with the right software, function without human control. More below.
