Scientists combine robotics with biology to construct biohybrid microrobots

A team of scientists in the Physical Intelligence Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems have combined robotics with biology by equipping E. coli bacteria with artificial components to construct biohybrid microrobots. Firstly, the team attached several nanoliposomes to each bacterium. On their outer circle, these spherical-shaped carriers enclose a material (ICG, green … Read more

K-12 Computer Science Creating A Case For Full-Time Status In Schools

Students engaging with computer science through project based learning principles. pi-top Life has little moments. Segments of time stitch together to reveal a passing of the torch. Coding, gaming, and expanded robotic and artificial intelligence (AI) applications are creating new, comprehensive, integrated offerings that can no longer be dismissed as tomorrow’s reality. Today, computer science … Read more

Robotic Shoulders May Be The Key to Lab-Made Tendon Grafts

Robotic skeletons designed to look and move like real humans are being investigated for growing tendons strong enough to actually transplant. If the proof-of-concept can be perfected with further research, tissue grown on humanoid robots could one day be grafted onto a real person, fixing tears in their tendons. Today, surgeons can try their hands … Read more

This ‘Crab’ Is The Smallest Remote-Controlled Walking Robot Ever Built

Is your tiny robot really all that small if it’s bigger than the width of a coin? A team of scientists has built what is now the smallest-ever remote-controlled walking robot, coming in at a mere half a millimeter (less than a fiftieth of an inch) wide. Exceedingly tiny robots have a whole host of … Read more

Boston University to open new robotics lab to foster more student innovators – BIOENGINEER.ORG

It’s a “playroom” for Boston University students to operate robots on the ground — and in the air. It’s a “brain” space to research robots that think. It’s a miniaturized city for road testing mini self-driving vehicles. It’s an area to work on lifesaving, flexible medical robots that don’t require motors or rigid parts. It’s … Read more
