This soft robotic gripper can screw in your light bulbs for you — ScienceDaily

How many robots does it take to screw in a light bulb? The answer: just one, assuming you're talking about a new robotic gripper developed by engineers at the University...

A material that mimics the brain — ScienceDaily

Even as the power of our modern computers grows exponentially, biological systems -- like our brains -- remain the ultimate learning machines. By finding materials that act in ways similar...

Future smartwatches could sense hand movement using ultrasound imaging — ScienceDaily

New research has shown future wearable devices, such as smartwatches, could use ultrasound imaging to sense hand gestures. The research team led by Professor Mike Fraser, Asier Marzo and Jess McIntosh...

DISTRO: Researchers create digital objects from incomplete 3D data

Depth sensors, such as those of the Microsoft Kinect, are very powerful, but unfortunately they do not work equally well on all materials, which leads to noisy data or even...

Flexible 'skin' can help robots, prosthetics perform everyday tasks by sensing shear force

Engineers have developed a flexible sensor 'skin' that can be stretched over any part of a robot's body or prosthetic to accurately convey information about shear forces and vibration, which...
