Scientists build biological robots from human tracheal cells

Researchers from Tufts University and Harvard University’s Wyss Institute have created tiny biological robots they call Anthrobots from human tracheal cells that can move across a surface and have discovered that they stimulate the growth of neurons in a damaged region on a laboratory plate.

From virtual reality to real life: how people will live in the future

In the future, virtual reality and metaverse experiences could be experienced in a different way, much more immersive and natural, giving people a realistic sense of their living and working environment. This is what researchers who have developed flexible nanomaterial sensors for detection are pointing out.  This way, with simple vibrations of the skin, facial […]

When cartoons inspire space exploration

Engineers in Japan have created a 3.5 tonne robotic suit reminiscent of a character from a hugely popular animated series, which they hope to use in space exploration and emergency situations. Tokyo-based start-up Tsubame Industries has developed the four-wheeled, 4.5 metre tall (14.8 foot) Archax robot that resembles “Mobile Suit Gundam” from the 1970s Japanese […]

Artificial Intelligence to protect Earth is in the making

IBM and NASA have announced an alliance that will serve to create an Artificial Intelligence (AI) capable of analysing data from scientific missions on Earth. The goal is to predict the evolution of issues such as deforestation, impact on crops and also emissions of toxic gases into the atmosphere. The model that will be the […]

ANDI: the robot that can sweat, breathe and feel cold

It looks like a mannequin, but it’s much more than that. Scientists at Arizona State University (ASU), USA, have developed what is the first robot capable of sweating, breathing, walking, generating heat and feeling cold – all to give insights about the impact of heat waves on the human body. Named ANDI, the “thermal mannequin” […]

Solar panel technology generates electricity from rainfall

Researchers have come up with a new way to generate electricity with solar panel technology by harvesting the energy produced by raindrops. The method, proposed by a team from Tsinghua University in China, involves a device called a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) that creates electrification from liquid-solid contact. The panels are typically used to collect energy […]
