    After years of tests, researchers at the University of Illinois have just revealed a recipe for making your own bio-bots. The team explains each step of the 3D printing process, from the skeleton to the tissue and muscle actuator, as well as the tools required. Only eight days are needed to print these muscle-powered...

    They are like bugs crawling all over your body, except that they are entirely electronic and have wheels. Researchers from MIT and Stanford developed Rovables, miniature wearable robots that can drive around your body while hanging onto your clothes. The little rovers use their magnetic gripping wheels to cling to...

    The Chinese start-up Roobo revealed Domgy, one of the first autonomous service robots designed for home. Domgy is at once a personal assistant, a security guard and a domotic (or home automation) aide. Thanks to facial and audio recognition technology, it can monitor all electronic devices in a house and alert the...

    His name is Iron Man, his nickname, Ivan the Terrible. The Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects (the equivalent of the American DARPA) exhibited last month on Russian TV a prototype humanoid military robot. It is designed to intervene in battle and other dangerous zones where the risk of fires, explosions...

    When the orange giant lifts a car it appears to be as light as a feather. KUKA’s KR 1000 1300 Titan PA robot is strong enough to lift up to 1.3 tons. The 1000 kilogram version was introduced as the world’s most powerful industrial robot. Now, the 1300 model goes further, offering a supplementary payload of 50kg. Its...

    The Tripod Actuator (TrAC) is the prototype of a customized stepping piezo actuator designed by Cedrat Technologies. Stepping piezoelectric actuators are new, long-stroke linear piezoelectric motors for micro and nano positioning applications, locking mechanisms, valve actuators, instrumentation such as microscopes,...
