Researchers have created a sensory integrated artificial brain system that simulates biological neural networks, which can work using a power-efficient neuromorphic processor such as Intel’s Loihi chip.
Kitchen robots are famous foresight for the future. However, if an existing robot attempts to pick up a kitchen staple like a shiny knife or a clear measuring cup, it may not be successful.
New jellyfish-inspired soft robots developed by engineering researchers at North Carolina State University and Temple University have been found to outswim their real-life counterparts.
A team of researchers from the University of Bath, working together with Ninja Theory, a game development studio, has developed a solution to the difficulties involved in creating realistic VR sword fights: Touché—a data-driven, machine learning-based computer model.
Northwestern University researchers have developed a family of soft materials that imitates living creatures.
A new film made of gold nanoparticles changes color in response to any type of movement. Its unprecedented qualities could allow robots to mimic chameleons and octopi -- among other futuristic applications.
Engineers at Johns Hopkins University have studied movements of cockroaches by chasing them through an obstacle course, finding that the change in their movement was related to overcoming the prospective energy barriers and that they can jitter about to overcome obstacles in complex terrain.
MIT engineers have designed a “brain-on-a-chip,” smaller than a piece of confetti, that is made from tens of thousands of artificial brain synapses known as memristors — silicon-based components that mimic the information-transmitting synapses in the human brain.
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.
