Parasitic Robot System for Turtle’s Waypoint Navigation

Parasitic Robot System for Turtle’s Waypoint Navigation

May 23, 2017 @ 06:20 | A KAIST research team presented a hybrid animal-robot interaction called “the parasitic robot system,” that imitates the nature relationship between parasites and host. The research team led by Professor Phil-Seung Lee of the Department of Mechanical Engineering took an animal’s locomotive abilities to apply the theory of using a […]

A Biohybrid Crawling Robot from Sea Slug parts and 3D Printed Body

A Biohybrid Crawling Robot from Sea Slug parts and 3D Printed Body

Jul 22, 2016 @ 18:05 |  Researchers have created a biohybrid robot with muscle from slug mouth and 3D printed body. Researchers believe that swarms of this robot could one day search the depths of fresh and saltwater. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University have combined tissues from a sea slug with flexible 3-D printed […]

A Robotic Stingray may Help to Understand Working of Heart

A Robotic Stingray may Help to Understand Working of Heart

Jul 8, 2016 @ 21:30 |  Bio-Inspired researchers have designed a miniature bio-hybrid robotic stingray that could help our understanding of the heart. Robotic Stingray is neither fully living animal nor fully artificial robot; it is the hybrid of both. It has an elastomeric body enclosing a micro-fabricated gold skeleton (non living) with rat heart […]
