Enjoy at the moment’s movies!

Just like an actual human, Acrobot will generally kick you within the face.

Thanks, Elizabeth!

You had me at “wormlike, limbless robots.”

Filmed in July 2017, this video exhibits us utilizing Atlas to place out a “fireplace” on our loading dock. This makes use of a mixture of teleoperation and autonomous behaviors via a single, distant laptop. Robot constructed by Boston Dynamics for the DARPA Robotics Challenge in 2013. Software by IHMC Robotics.

I’d say that in the course of a rainstorm might be the most effective time to start out a hearth that you just count on to be extinguished by a robotic.

We’re laborious at work, however Atlas nonetheless has time for a dance break.

This is fairly cool: BruBotics is testing its self-healing robotics gripper know-how on business grippers from Festo.

Thanks, Bram!

Inspired by caregiving specialists, we proposed a bimanual interactive robotic dressing help scheme, which is unprecedented in earlier analysis. In the scheme, an interactive robotic joins arms with the human thus supporting/guiding the human within the dressing course of, whereas the dressing robotic performs the dressing job. This work represents a paradigm shift of considering of the dressing help job from one-robot-to-one-arm to two-robot-to-one-arm.

Thanks, Jihong!

Tony Punnoose Valayil from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Institute of Robotics wrote in to share some very low-cost hand-rehabilitation robots for house use.

In this video, we current a robot-assisted rehabilitation of the wrist joint which might support in restoring the power that has been misplaced throughout the higher limb attributable to stroke. This robotic could be very cost-effective and can be utilized for house rehabilitation.

In this video, we current an exoskeleton robotic which can be utilized at house for rehabilitating the index and center fingers of stroke-affected sufferers. This robotic is constructed at a value of fifty euros for sufferers who aren’t financially impartial to get higher therapy.

Some very spectacular work right here from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), exhibiting a drone monitoring its place utilizing radar and lidar-based odometry in some nightmare (for robots) environments, together with a protracted tunnel that appears the identical in all places and a hallway stuffed with smoke.

I’m sorry, however folks ought to actually know higher than to make movies like this for social robotic crowdfunding by now.

It’s on Kickstarter for about $300, and the truth that it’s been funded so rapidly tells me that individuals have already forgotten concerning the social robotpocalypse.
