Meet the SKEYE Nano Drone, the World’s Smallest Quadcopter

Meet the SKEYE Nano Drone, the world’s smallest quadcopter measuring just 4.0 x 4.0 centimeter (or 1.57 x 1.57 inch)! An incredible quadcopter, so small it can easily sit on your thumb and fly on precision controlled exercises into the narrowest of nooks! The stylish design looks and performs amazing in flight. Turning cycles, figure […]

Controlling Swarms of Robots with a Finger

Controlling Swarms of Robots with a Finger

Using a smart tablet and a red beam of light, Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created a system that allows people to control a fleet of robots with the swipe of a finger. A person taps the tablet to control where the beam of light appears on a floor. The swarm robots then roll […]

Horizon Launched World’s  Longest Endurance Multi-Rotor UAV

Horizon Launched World’s Longest Endurance Multi-Rotor UAV

In Drone technology, battery power for long endurance is a huge issue with light weight cells. Most commercially available drones have around 20 to 30 minute flight time. But new development in alternative energy sources such as Hydrogen fuel cells can increase flight time up to four hours or more. “We realized the the structures […]

Tiny Swarm Robots That can Move a Car

Tiny Swarm Robots That can Move a Car

The Autonomous Vehicle Emergency Recovery Tool (AVERT) started as a research project in 2012 to provide a unique capability to Police and Armed Services to rapidly deploy, extract and remove both blocking and suspect vehicles from vulnerable positions such as enclosed infrastructure spaces, tunnels, low bridges as well as under-building and underground car parks. Vehicles […]

Robotic Telescope Discovers Three New Planets

Robotic Telescope Discovers Three New Planets

Using a robotic telescope at Lick Observatory that scans the sky night after night, astronomers have discovered three planets – supersized Earths ‑ around a nearby star. “The three planets are unlike anything in our solar system, with masses seven to eight times the mass of Earth and orbits very close to their host star,” […]

JAXA, Japan aims to Achieve Moon Landing of Robot in 2018

JAXA, Japan aims to Achieve Moon Landing of Robot in 2018

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is moving forward with a plan to land an unmanned probe on the moon’s surface by as early as fiscal 2018.This would make Japan the fourth nation to achieve the feat, following the former Soviet Union, the United States and China. The plan calls for launching a “SLIM” probe […]
