Tiny medical robot that goes through your veins

Tiny medical robot that goes through your veins
This tiny bot was designed to travel through veins and it’s  just one millimeter in diameter. Developed by researchers from Israel’s Technion University, what makes the robot feasible is that it isn’t self-propelled, saving size and engineering complication. Instead, It is controlled by a magnet outside the body. See those little spines? Those straighten out to keep the bot ...

Little dog Quadruped robot

Little dog Quadruped robot
  This Little dog is a quadruped robot designed for research on learning locomotion. We aren’t sure if the lack of Big dogs signature jogging in place makes this little guy seem more lifelike or less.  LittleDog has four legs, each powered by three electric motors. The legs have a large range of motion. Scientists at leading ...

Robot Learns to Smile with Einstein’s face

Robot Learns to Smile with Einstein's face
A hyper-realistic Einstein robot at the University of California, San Diego learned to smile and make facial expressions through a process of self-guided learning. The UC San Diego researchers used machine learning to empower their robot to learn to make realistic facial expressions. To get the incredibly realistic Einstein robot to make facial expressions, researchers ...
