New Shape Shifting Robot Science May Make Space Exploration Easier and Cheaper. Exploring space is a very expensive venture with decades worth of research and often no window for failure with space craft and devices that can only be used for one purpose and then maybe only once. Researchers at UC Berkeley are working to […]

Is Simulated Robot Pain Like Real Pain? We are it seems moving closer to a time where we will be interacting robots in our everyday lives. Within the last 10 years we have learned to interact ( hate ) corporate automated phone systems and in Japan robot greeters are being tested in store fronts. The […]

Bioinspired Robots in Research. In the early days of robotics, researchers endeavored to recreate human motion, control and logic into machines that one day could become useful to mankind. Today industrial robots are used in place of human workers for many assembly and process tasks. Human like robots are still in the development stages.

What the World Needs Now, is Flying Submarines. The idea of very small flying robots bee like machines is not the stuff of science fiction. In fact we have found research on this topic going back years. MIT has invested significant resources into development of these Robobees as they are known in the hope of someday […]
