Construction of the future will be occupied by robots and drones

It seems that the place of a harsh construction superintendent will soon be occupied by high-flying drones with “vigilant” chambers that will lead the work of robotic bulldozers, cranes and other construction equipment. The first steps have already been taken. In the United States, a Skycatch system has been developed that uses drones on construction sites. Its main …

The surgeon surpassed his “living” colleague

Autonomous robot surgeon STAR (Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot) during the experimental operation on gluing pig intestinal tissues performed the work faster and more accurately than his “live” colleague. While the robot can not operate alone – he needs a consultant, but, according to researchers, the result is a big step forward. The robot is equipped with 3D-video …

Scientists have created synchronous molecular motors

An international team of scientists led by physicist Sav-Wei Hla from the University of Ohio has developed molecular motors that can synchronize their movements. The results of the research will help in the development of photonics and electronics and will be useful for the creation of new computers and nanodevices. The researchers conducted an experiment in which …

Scientists tested the blood vessels grown in the laboratory

The search for ideas on replacing human tissues continues. To the undoubted success of scientists should be attributed the first steps to print organs on a 3D printer. Now the researchers managed to grow blood vessels in the laboratory. A common problem for earlier solutions was the tendency to infections and rejection of new tissues by the body, as well …

Scientists develop ethical standards for unmanned vehicles

Obviously, in the near future unmanned vehicles will become a part of our life. With no less confidence, we can state that they will also face the problems typical for ordinary cars with drivers. Already, with the help of computers, scientists are modeling how a drones car behaves when, for example, a carefree pedestrian suddenly appears before him. That …
