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.
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.
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.
