…a robot fish that is able to swim and recognize tank edges and obstacles. We’ll find out how we can easily create it with common insulating material and a few servo motor controlled by Arduino. I love this project from Open Electronics. The movement is spookily realistic, I’ve just got to build one of these […]
Festo produce some of the most remarkable biology inspired robots. Their latest offering is a robotic dragonfly called the BionicOpter. It has a wingspan of 63cm and weighs just 175grams and can mimic all the forms of flight of a real dragonfly including up and down, forwards, backwards and to the side. The flapping wing […]
This is an unusual aerial robot, not you usual controlled flight, but a bumbling insect-like movement. There are some parts of the video which are quite uncanny. I can just imagine what a swarm of these would look like, and you could be forgiven for thinking that it was a swarm of giant insects.
I love this concept, that Drones can harvest energy from power lines and effectively live in the wild. We’ve seen basic BEAM (Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, and Mechanics) robots harvest solar energy, but this adds another dimension. One day if we ever develop artificial intelligence, you can imagine robots like this living in the wild and […]
