Robotic fish uses three servos to swim

Robotic fish uses three servos to swim
  Amnon built this robotic fish. The three servos along with some distance sensors for obstacle avoidance are all controlled by a PIC 16F877A microcontroller. [Amnon] tried out three different waterproofing methods; coating the device in varnish, dipping it in hot glue, and dipping it in epoxy. The first two resulted in water damage to the ...

Robots Arms Moving around Fanta Cans

Robots Arms Moving around Fanta Cans
The video might be a little pointless, but it demonstrates how good the robot arms are working together. That is a real time demonstration of the accuracy and speed the ABB robots achieve. We were surprised, even shocked, when we clicked play. We don’t know who came up with this idea, but we want those robots, ...

The Robotic Blimp – Skittles

The Robotic Blimp - Skittles
  Funky Shiitake Mushrooms, a high school design team from Fremont, CA, have created a low cost airship they call Skittles the Second. Skittles is a remote control robotic blimp, complete with 4 reversible propellers, wireless video, and 2.4 a GHz remote control. For the future, the group plans to give the ship autonomous capabilities, in order ...

Build a puppet robot with one servo

Building a robot with one servo is not as easy as you might think, especially if you want the robot to actually do something meaningful, like mimic human behavior. But [Guilherme Martins] rose to a challenge to build a robot with a single servo. His robot is a puppet controller, in real time, it will move ...

Skiing Robot

Skiing Robot
[Bojan Nemec] of the Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia has come up with a robot that can ski better than us without falling over. Not that skiing better than us is a hugely lofty goal. The bot is capable of skiing using standard, off the shelf skis. It has two systems, one system only does steering and balance while the ...

Robot that has Einstein’s face

Robot that has Einstein's face
David Hansn, the man in charge of this project built this robot’s faces look and act like yours: They recognize and respond to emotion, and make expressions of their own. Here, an “emotional” live demo of the Einstein robot offers a peek at a future where robots truly mimic humans. [David] makes a very interesting proclamation: ...
