Sewbo is a sewing-machine-like machine with a smart robotic arm and is the first robot that can assemble and sew together a complete item of clothing. It was created by Seattle-based web developer Jonathan Zornow. This robot could spell the end to slave labor sweatshops that manufacture low-cost garments in cheap labor countries like China, Bangladesh, […]
Open Bionics started out in 2013 from a bedroom as a crowd-funding project and was later supported by Bristol Robotics Laboratory. The creator of Open Bionics, Joel Gibbard, plans to help hand amputees by providing them lightweight robotic hands. The design of these robotic hands has been iterated 10 times till now since they were […]
Remember the movie Real Steal where we saw a futuristic world where huge mechanised robots fought with each other in an arena. Well, it looks like that time isn’t far away. The US has already built its giant robot named MegaBots MK. II to take on Kuratas, its Japanese rival in an upcoming piloted robot […]
THORwin, a humanoid machine, might not be able to shoot and bend it like Beckham but when it’s about robotic soccer players, it surely is the best. This US-made machine just bagged the top prize in China for adult-sized category RoboCup this year in an international yearly soccer championship that’s especially designed for robots. This […]
President Obama Plays Football With Japanese Robot Asimo U.S. President Barack Obama President had a great time playing soccer with a Japanese robot ASIMO.

A new Cheetah robot.
In this Chinese restaurant, robots do the greeting, cooking and serving.
Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro unveiled his latest robots in Tokyo recently. They looked so eerily human.
And that is what researchers at Cornell University are doing. They’re teaching a robot named Baxter how to handle items as a grocery store checkout clerk.
It’s one thing to get robots to mimic human movement, but it’s another thing altogether to get them to mimic human emotion and facial expressions. A Dallas-based company wants to provide you with that robot companionship in the form of the more affordable RoboKind Zeno R25.
One of the most fascinating things about Poppy is that each of its components was actually printed on a 3D printer. And the overall cost is far lower than other similar robots.
Wars are not going to be fought by people; they’re going to be fought by our robot overlords. While the US military has been using drones and robots for some time, they have now taken the next logical step and outfitted one of their land robots with a machine gun. The so-called “Protector” robot had […]
At the first ever Eurathlon, special robots recently competed in a series of mock disaster events, to see who performed the best.
What you see here is JAMES, the Joint Action in Multimodal Embodied Systems robot, and he wants to serve you a drink when you approach him at the bar.
The 51 feet tall Tradinno the Dragon is the world’s largest walking robot. Not impressed by its size? How about the fact that it breathes fire?!
A big part of that transition comes by way of developments like their TextureCam. Here is a 3D camera system that allows the exploration robots to make an educated guess as to what should be worth investigating further.
What you see here are the Battroborgs and they’re basically radio-controlled robots built for the single purpose of engaging in a boxing bout for your amusement.
Here at MM we are always covering the latest about security robots, noodle making robots and anything in between. Now comes Linda, a robot that could take security and elderly care to a new level.Wait… Security and elderly care? Certainly an interesting combo.
And 3D printers could be the solution for amputees in developing countries too, thanks to the work of 17-year-old Easton LaChappelle from Colorado.
We’ve seen some smaller replicas and we’ve seen a handful that have the cute moving eyes, but I don’t think we’ve seen a life-sized replica of Wall-E that is as ambitious as what Michael McMaster and his group of robot-creating friends have been able to put together.
Students from the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab at UC Berkeley have used a ProJet 3000 3D printer to create a robot that can walk under the narrowest of gaps.
In order to have the most amazing robot ever, you need all sorts of cool technology to culminate into that one electronic companion. You want it to have lifelike movement. You want it to have speech recognition. And you want it to have skin that lights up when touched. Wait… what?
Developed as part of the Kibo Robot Project, the humanoid named Kirobo is going to be the first robot in space which will communicate with humans.
Ever secretly dreamed of having your own Jetsons-style personal robot? The PR2 robot is a personal servant that predicts your needs and caters to them.
At Google’s Big Tent, several experts came together to talk about the future of robotic tech and AI — particularly the moral and ethical implications of advancement.
The 3DLPrinter can 3D print objects with a very fine resolution, but it comes with a very high price tag.
Do you own a busy gambling den and/or casino? Are your staff taking unnecessary “bathroom, breaks”, taking winnings for themselves or cheating the system? Perhaps you just want a more secure, calculating system with little chance of human error? Then what you need is Yaskawa Motoman Robotics new SDA10F blackjack dealing robot. The sophisticated robot […]
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have made a breakthrough in human brain controlled robotic arm manipulation.
The future isn’t about having a massive supercomputer. It’s about having a giant swarm of really small robots, as is the case with these music-playing bots from Georgia Tech. Coming from the school’s Georgia Robotics and InTelligent Systems (GRITS) Lab, these Khepera robots are instructed to play a certain score, but they’re not at all told how to do it.
UAV’s are one of those areas of technology that really opens a lot of doors for creativity, and for designers and manufacturers, there’s no better inspiration than the natural world around us. A team from Georgia Tech has been hard at work on mimicking the natural flying capabilities of a dragonfly, and with their new palm-sized TechJet Dragonfly, their work may have paid off.
There’s only one thing more worrying than a robot wielding a knife, and that is a robot wielding a knife that it knows how to use it. However in this instance, CIROS, a unit suitably fit for the kitchen, robot knife skills may be more helpful than we may have thought before.
Most of us have at least heard of the TV show Macgyver before. You know, about the guy who can basically take just about anything and turn it into a true solution to a problem? Well, that’s what Professor Mike Stilman and researchers at Georgia Tech are attempting to do with a robot creation of their own, aptly named the “Macgyver bot”.
Researchers at Harvard are working hard to advance one step closer towards finishing a development project involving a micro air vehicle named the Robobee. The robot, that is smaller than a coin, was already able to lift off using it’s own power source, but now it has added functionalities to help control it’s flight.
Animal robots have become quite commonplace. In fact, a robot that isn’t designed after a human being or another animal would probably be more out of place. Today we are taking a look at a robot that uses four air-powered limbs that take inspiration from the body and design of an octopus.
