World’s first stainless-steel robot with seven degrees of freedom

July 24, 2013


Kawasaki Heavy Industries has developed the world’s first all-stainless-steel robot with seven degrees of freedom. It will be used in the drug discovery and pharmaceutical fields to automate experiments that use dangerous chemicals.

Due to its stainless steel body, it can be sterilized using hydrogen peroxide gas, for work in sterile environments. Kawasaki plans to launch this robot in January 2014.

Watch 32 discordant metronomes achieve synchrony in a matter of minutes

October 1, 2012


If you place 32 metronomes on a static object and set them rocking out of phase with one another, they will remain that way indefinitely. Place them on a moveable surface, however, and something very interesting (and very mesmerizing) happens, notes io9.

The metronomes in this video fall into the latter camp. Energy from the motion of one ticking metronome can affect the motion of every metronome… read more

Soft autonomous earthworm robot at MIT

August 10, 2012


Earthworms creep along the ground by alternately squeezing and stretching muscles along the length of their bodies, inching forward with each wave of contractions. Snails and sea cucumbers also use this mechanism, called peristalsis, to get around, and our own gastrointestinal tracts operate by a similar action, squeezing muscles along the esophagus to push food to the stomach.

Now researchers at MIT, Harvard University and Seoul National University have… read more

DARPA’s Wound Stasis technology could save lives

December 11, 2012


Battlefield medical care administered by first responders is often critical to the survival of injured service members. In the case of internal abdominal injuries and resulting internal hemorrhaging, however, there is currently little that can be done to stanch bleeding before the patients reach necessary treatment facilities. The resulting blood loss often leads to death from what would otherwise be potentially survivable wounds.
