Google tech to bring 3D mapping smarts to NASA's space station robots
NASA and Google are working together to send new 3D technology aloft to map the International Space Station.

Simplicity is key to co-operative robots
A way of making hundreds -- or even thousands -- of tiny robots cluster to carry out tasks without using any memory or processing power has been developed. Engineers have programmed extremely simple robots that are able to form a dense cluster without the need for complex computation, in a (...)

Chess robots to cause Judgment Day?
Next time you play a computer at chess, think about the implications if you beat it. It could be a very sore loser! A new study reflects upon the growing need for autonomous technology, and suggests that humans should be very careful to prevent future systems from developing anti-social and (...)

Mobile robots support airplane manufacturers
The robots move at walking speed along airplane components; in doing so, it applies a sealant against corrosion in equal measure. The mobile assistant is surrounded by technical workers who install, drill, and test. Admittedly this scenario is still a glimpse of the future – but in just a few (...)

Futuristic robots allow doctors to examine patients from anywhere
A fleet of telemedicine robots to improve efficiency and patient care is being deployed to physicians, who will use them to examine patients remotely. Using a laptop, tablet or smartphone, doctors are now able to interact and perform their jobs in ways not previously possible. They can see, (...)

Look who's evolving now: Using robots to study evolution
Scientists have demonstrated the usefulness of robots in studying evolution.  They successfully used a colony of rodent-like robots to watch different mating strategies evolve.  The work not only generated interesting and unexpected results, but it has also helped validate the use of robots in (...)

Knowledge transfer between computers: Computers teach each other Pac-Man
Researchers have developed a method to allow a computer to give advice and teach skills to another computer in a way that mimics how a real teacher and student might interact. Researchers had the agents -- as the virtual robots are called -- act like true student and teacher pairs: student (...)

Fish'n'microchips: MIT's soft robotic fish swims 'like the real thing'
'It's much easier to make robots safe if their bodies are so wonderfully soft that there's no danger if they whack you'. By Stuart DredgeStuart Dredge
[The Guardian]

Soft robotic fish moves like the real thing: New robotic fish can change direction almost as rapidly as a real fish
Soft robots don't just have soft exteriors but are also powered by fluid flowing through flexible channels. Researchers now report the first self-contained autonomous soft robot capable of rapid body motion: a "fish" that can execute an escape maneuver, convulsing its body to change direction (...)
