A plastic miniature robot, composed of responsive polymers, has been developed by scientists from the Eindhoven University of Technology.
Inspired by a coral polyp, this plastic mini robot moves by magnetism and light.
HAI ROBOTICS announced the launch of two new HAIPICK robots: the world's first carton-picking ACR HAIPICK A42N and double-deep ACR HAIPICK A42D.
HAMR-JR, a minuscule robot developed by researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Harvard Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, cannot climb up the waterspout.
Artificial cilia, or hair-like structures, developed by researchers from North Carolina State University and Elon University have the ability to bend into novel shapes when subjected to a magnetic field.
A majority of the synthetic materials, such as those in battery electrodes, catalysts, and polymer membranes, tend to deteriorate with time since they lack intrinsic repair mechanisms.
At the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI and ETH Zurich, scientists have created an innovative micromachine that is capable of carrying out a variety of actions.
A RoboBee rushing toward a wall or bumping into a glass box might have caused panic earlier among scientists at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS).
Snake-like articulated mobile robots can enter narrow spaces and climb obstacles using their long and thin bodies, and are effective for inspection of narrow spaces and search-and-rescue operation on disaster sites.
In the past few years, soft robots have received a great deal of attention for their special characteristics when compared to conventional rigid robots.
