Project Baxter is looking for new ways to communicate people and robots

Robots are gradually becoming a part of our daily lives – while they are gaining more independence. Ubiquitous robotics persistently requires the creation of a new, special “language” of communication between people and machines. The communication of people, as is known, is not limited to words spoken only. Its no less important component is the facial expression and …

The chain of robots ChainFORM will turn into what you need

The brainchild of the Tangible Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology implements the principle of “interface with a changing form.” Instead of a finished design, you get a coil with a conditional-infinite tape from the combined robotic segments. You tear off as much as you need, and design the machine for your task. ChainFORM – just …

Robots revive the lost art of writing by hand

In the race on the drones, the pilot-man was defeated by the artificial intellect – and at the same time was a loser

In the Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA recently developed a new version of the autopilot for multicopters based on artificial intelligence. And to choose the most logical and extreme option – a match with an experienced live pilot. They became Ken Loo, who professionally pilots flying drones. The man against the three AIs is Batman, Joker and Nightwing. All the …
