A recently published study has observed the way bats flap their wings, hoping to find a new way of designing small flying vehicles, and now they're one flap closer.

The study entitled "Straight-line climbing flight aerodynamics of a fruit bat", which was published in the Physics of Fluid journal by a team of researchers from Virginia Tech has led them one step closer to designing ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOJecVKD34g Rubik's Cube solving robots are nothing new, anything capable of the dexterity of solving one has probably already been made to solve it, however this Lego one seems (from the little information the video offers) pretty sophisticated and is able to solve the problem in just under 3 minutes. Pretty rad.

Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism technologies (MET) trialled the scheme back in November 2013, which had drones flying day and night relaying live footage of herds of black rhinos back to rangers. While the technologies used to track aren't super state of the art, with the tracking done through tracking the smart radio tags attached to the rhinos, which allows the 2 metre wingspan'd drones to track the herds location. This simplistic...

Falling for an inanimate object, like a robot, is certainly possible for humans, from US Military personal throwing funerals for bomb disposal bots to a Japanese guy trying to marry a video game character back in 2009. Continue reading →
Falling for an inanimate object, like a robot, is certainly possible for humans, evident from US Military personal throwing funerals for bomb disposal bots to a Japanese guy trying to marry a video game character back in 2009. The idea, which was recently brought into the limelight by Spike Jones' latest film Her, where a guy falls for his AI personal assistant, is an interesting topic and certainly one that needs to be addressed. While the guy w...

The Robots building themselves a stairway to reach higher ground. (Credit: Eliza Grinnell, SEAS Communications.) Inspired by the collective intelligence of termites, the TERMES system designed at Harvard is able to achieve complex tasks with simple agents. The idea is universal across all swarm robotic projects, find a way to split complex tasks up to be solved by many, inexpensive, replaceable and simple robots, or "agents", instead of a single ...

Traffic congestion is a common problem, and directing traffic can be dangerous, so why not build a giant metallic beast to do it for you?
Robotic Police Directing Traffic (Photo credit Junior D. Kannah/AFP/Getty Images) Traffic congestion is a common problem, and directing traffic can be dangerous, so why not build a giant metallic beast to do it for you? The giant robot was erected to direct traffic in the same way a human would, in Kinshasa the capital city of Congo. Alongside giving stop and go signals, the robots, like their human counter parts, are able to issue tickets to peo...

Ok, so it isn't quite a robot, it's more of an automation system, but the band of 3 robots, the guitarist with 78 fingers, the drummer with 22 arms are planning on releasing an album played entirely through them. I wonder how many takes it'll be before…

I wonder how many takes it'll be before they perfect it? The robotic band are being composed by artist Squarepusher who originally started toying with the idea as simply a creative outlet but ...

Intel Capital (Intel's global investment organization) announced today that it has invested in two 3D companies. The companies first steps in to the 3D printing business. Lithuanian company CGTrader and makexyz and Austin, US we're both swept up by the company in recent acquisitions. Both companies currently allow users to upload 3D models, or select from a large catalogue which are then printed and ready for local collection or delivery. With th...

Google took interest in the iconic 350,000-square-foot hangar and you're probably curious as to the reasons why? Well, it turns out they're planning on using it for aerospace and robotic development. Hangar One, an iconic Silicon Valley landmark is one of the worlds largest free standing buildings, originally built to house airships, is set to be refurbished and kit out with the latest in aerospace and robotic tech that Google have to offer.
