Robotics

RoboBee can crash, fly, and collide without being damaged

It is the first microrobot powered by soft actuators to achieve controlled flight.

An artificial skin for your devices that mimics human skin

Skin-On, an artificial skin-like membrane for augmenting interactive devices such as phones, wearables or computers.

Sensitive robots are safer

Biologically-inspired artificial skin improves the sensory ability of robots.

The tuna-inspired robotic fish can swim as fast as real fish

Tunabot can swim faster than most other underwater swimming robots and may someday be used for underwater surveillance.

New microscopic biohybrid robots propelled by muscles, nerves

A new generation of two-tailed bots powered by skeletal muscle tissue stimulated by on-board motor neurons.

Robots can now learn to swarm on the go

A new generation of swarming robots which can independently learn and evolve new behaviors in the wild is one step closer, thanks to research from the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England (UWE).

Hip-assisting exosuit makes both walking and running more energy efficient

So far, there is a number of exoskeletons, or robotic devices have been designed to help people with walking, and few of them can...

New roach-inspired robot withstands 1 million times the weight of its own

Unlike large-scale robots powered by bulky actuators/motors, small-scale soft robots are often restricted to small actuators with low output power based on materials of...

“LUKE Arm” can sense touch, move with your thoughts

For helping amputees regain the sense of touch, a lot of efforts has been made so far. Despite the increasingly advanced developments in the...

A soft ring oscillator allows soft robots to roll, undulate, sort, and swallow

Soft robots can’t always compete with the hard. But every year, soft robots gain new ability - they can simplify certain mechanical tasks, such...
