Watson goes west looking to make some new friends. It can start in its neighborhood
Most robotic parts used today are rigid, have a limited range of motion and don’t really look lifelike.
The post Bio-inspired robotic finger looks, feels and works like the real thing has been published on Technology Org.
Soft steps and large feet can allow animals and robots to maintain high speeds on very loose soil and sand. These findings offer a new insight into how animals respond to different terrain, and how robots can learn from them.
On soft ground? Tread lightly to stay fast
You wouldn’t want to try this with any other drone
Most robotic parts used to today are rigid, have a limited range of motion and don’t really look lifelike. Inspired by both nature and biology, a scientist has designed a novel robotic finger that looks, feels and works like the real thing. Using shape memory alloy, a 3D CAD model of a human finger, a 3D printer and a unique thermal training technique, this robotic finger could ultimately be adapted for use as a prosthetic device, such as on a prosthetic hand.
