European research company RoboHow is now teaching robots how to perform practical, everyday tasks, from the home to the office. If they succeed, humanoids will be able to flip pancakes, reload paper in a printer, and more.
In an astounding video recently released by scientists at Cambridge University, a "mother" robot is shown constructing her own "children" out of mechanized blocks, then testing them to see which ones are most well-suited for survival.
Before robots take over the world, we should put them to good use, right? At least, that seems to be the rationale behind the latest robot-oriented project at MIT, through which engineers have programmed robots to deliver beer.
It's the best of both worlds, really -- a robot that moves and reacts like a human. In the never ending quest to turn man into a machine (or vice versa), engineers at MIT are moving yet another step closer by developing HERMES.
Transformed by a heartless ne'er-do-well into a headless pile of broken parts, hitchBOT the hitchhiking robot could yet live to thumb another ride thanks to numerous offers from kind strangers to help rebuild the damaged android.
Philadelphia has officially lost its right to its kind city nickname. After two weeks on the road, the hitchhiking robot who made headlines after successfully trekking across Canada has met his sad demise in Pennsylvania's largest city.
Thanks to a collaboration between Seoul National University and Harvard University, researchers have developed an insect-inspired robot that can stand and then jump on the liquid's surface
Handwriting is a dying art, since the majority of written communication is typed in our modern world. Still, computers may keep it alive for us, as thanks to one researcher's efforts, they can now write just like we used to.
In a recent logic test at RPI, one robot demonstrated self-awareness, a key component of real intelligence and a major differentiating factor (for now) between humans and humanoids.
Step inside for your chance to win some super-cute robots called Dash & Dot. You have to enter our competition to be in with a chance of winning. Good luck!
Describing as a robotic "art project", HitchBot has been built to test the relationship between humans and robots — and along the way it wants to make it from Boston to San Francisco.
Scientists from Harvard and the University of California have 3D-printed a tiny robot that can jump 2.5 feet -- pretty impressive considering that the robot itself is only the size of a soccer ball.
With the growing emphasis on STEM, programming languages may soon be just as important as spoken language. Enter Vortex, the robotic toy for kids that teaches them how to program and how to build their very own technology.
In the real life version of a Transformers fight, the Japanese robot Kuratas has accepted the challenge for a duel from American MegaBot to take place sometime in June of next year.
New findings published in the journal Science have suggested that the sea horse and its tail may provide the inspiration for engineers to build stronger, more flexible, longer-lasting robots.
