Scientists Mimic Neural Tissue in Army-Funded Research

“Enabling a breakthrough in robotic augmentation of high-tempo military maneuver and operations requires disrupting the notion of an intelligent system as a rigid multi-body platform optimized for slow, carefully planned movement in uncluttered terrain,” Stanton said. “Fundamental research is needed to transpose smart materials from the current paradigm of fixed properties and mechanics with extrinsic

The Raw Power of Human Motion

Standalone power modules that harvest and convert vibrations from their surroundings into electricity could soon fuel future microsystems. Autonomy is a much-anticipated feature of next-generation microsystems, such as remote sensors, wearable electronic gadgets, implantable biosensors and nanorobots. KAUST researchers led by Husam Alshareef, Jr-Hau He and Khaled Salama have developed small standalone devices by integrating

Breakthrough in Controlling DNA-Based Robots

Researchers use magnets to move tiny nano-devices faster than ever before. Researchers have devised a magnetic control system to make tiny DNA-based robots move on demand—and much faster than recently possible. In the journal Nature Communications, Carlos Castro and Ratnasingham Sooryakumar and their colleagues from The Ohio State University report that the control system reduced
