Engineers Program Tiny Robots to Move, Think Like Insects

While engineers have had success building tiny, insect-like robots, programming them to behave autonomously like real insects continues to present technical challenges. A group of Cornell engineers has been experimenting with a new type of programming that mimics the way an insect’s brain works, which could soon have people wondering if that fly on the

Synthetic Skin Could Lead to Advanced Prosthetic Limbs

Engineers from the University of Glasgow, who have previously developed an ”electronic skin” covering for prosthetic hands made from graphene, have found a way to use some of graphene”s remarkable physical properties to use energy from the sun to power the skin. Graphene is a highly flexible form of graphite which, despite being just a
