Making Prosthetic Limbs Feel More Natural

May 31, 2017 @ 20:06 |By Anne Trafton | MIT News | MIT researchers has developed a new surgical technique that could allow prosthetic limbs to feel more natural and Muscle grafts could help amputees sense and control artificial limbs. A new surgical technique devised by MIT researchers could allow prosthetic limbs to feel much more like natural limbs. […]

A New Gecko Inspired Soft Robotic Gripping System

A New Gecko Inspired Soft Robotic Gripping System

May 18, 2017 @ 09:19 | Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems have developed a soft  robotic gripping system that uses differential air pressure and a gecko-inspired adhesive for exceptional bonding to three-dimensional objects. The findings were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week. A soft […]

3D-Printed ‘Bionic Skin’ Could Give Robots the Sense of Touch

3D-Printed ‘Bionic Skin’ Could Give Robots the Sense of Touch

May 11, 2017 @ 17:55| Engineering researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a revolutionary process for 3D Printed ‘Bionic Skin’ stretchable electronic sensory devices that could give robots the ability to feel their environment. The discovery is also a major step forward in printing electronics on real human skin. The research will be published […]

A Novel Mechanical Design can Balance Bipedal Robots Without using Computer Brain and Sensors

May 3, 2017 @ 20:21 |  A bipedal robot, called Planar Elliptical Runner doesn’t need orientation sensors and computer brain to balance itself, its mechanical design is sufficient to provide dynamic stability as it runs. Inspired by Ostrich, Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) researchers have developed a bipedal robot, called Planar Elliptical Runner. In this project, the […]

Synthetic Two-Sided Gecko’s Foot Could Enable Underwater Robotics

Synthetic Two-Sided Gecko’s Foot Could Enable Underwater Robotics

Apr 27, 2017 @ 17:58| Inspired from gecko’s foot, scientists have created a double-sided adhesive that copies this reversible ability to stick and unstick to surfaces even in wet conditions. Geckos are well known for effortlessly scrambling up walls and upside down across ceilings. Even in slippery rain forests, the lizards maintain their grip. Now […]
