La grande santé
En juin 2012, on me diagnostique une SLA, plus connue sous le nom de maladie de Charcot. Toute ma vie est modifiée, emportée par cette maladie dégénérative qu'on ne sait pas guérir. Seule solution peut-être : les artefacts, ces robots qui suppléent les muscles défaillants et qui me propulsent à la (...)

Snake robots learn to turn by following the lead of real sidewinders
Researchers who develop snake-like robots have picked up a few tricks from real sidewinder rattlesnakes on how to make rapid and even sharp turns with their undulating, modular device. Working with colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Zoo Atlanta, they have analyzed the motions (...)

Baxter the robot is 'human safe' but not very good at Connect Four – video
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision demonstrates the visual ability of Baxter, a robot fitted with cameras in its head and wrists. The hope is that in another decade or so such robots will operate side-by-side with humans in 'unorganised environments' such as orchards, rather than being (...)
